Cedar Rapids Leg & Knee Injury Lawyer
When we go to work every day, even if we work in a field that requires physical exertion, it is expected that our employer will provide a safe environment where we can be free from bodily harm, injury, and other threats. Although workers’ compensation plans exist to protect and reimburse employees when they are harmed on the job, oftentimes employers or their insurance companies are reluctant to fully compensate their employees, occasionally even denying responsibility altogether.
For this reason, it is important to have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side. If you or a loved one has suffered a leg or knee injury while at work, contact a Cedar Rapids leg & knee injury lawyer at Pete Leehey Law Firm, P.C. We will examine your case and hold your employer accountable for the injuries that you have suffered while on the job.
Common Leg and Knee Injuries

- Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tears
