Indianapolis Tendonitis Lawyers
The body is filled with tendons, which are strong, flexible bands of tissue connecting bone to muscle. When your muscles contract in response to your brain’s command to lift your leg, wave your hand, twitch your fingers, or otherwise, the tendon shifts the force from the muscle to the bone, allowing for movement.
From the smallest tendons in the fingers to the largest tendons in your legs and heels, almost every muscle in the body has a tendon attached to it. Occasionally, these tendons can become inflamed, and even common movements, all of which require pulling on the tendon, can cause irritation and pain. This condition is called tendonitis, and most often occurs as a result of a muscle being overused. A number of jobs, especially those which are very physical, such as construction work, can result in tendonitis.
However, many employers will attempt to avoid culpability for tendonitis injuries, as they tend to be the type of injuries that build up over time. If you or a loved one’s employer is attempting to deny workers’ compensation coverage for a tendonitis injury, contact the Indianapolis tendonitis lawyers of Hankey Marks & Crider at (317) 634-8565.
Symptoms of Tendonitis
Some of the symptoms of tendonitis can include:
- Pain when area is used or touched
- Burning sensation
- Swollen, red, or warm area
- Restricted motion
Although tendonitis is a natural injury that occurs in many workers, especially in extremely physical job environments such as construction sites, employers can still be liable for these job-related injuries that their employees may sustain. If you or a loved one has suffered from tendonitis, contact the Indianapolis tendonitis lawyers of Hankey Marks & Crider at (317) 634-8565, and we will evaluate your case and fight to hold your employer accountable for your pain and suffering.
