Torn Rotator Cuff & Meniscus Injuries
Our knees and shoulders provide our bodies with incredible strength and range of motion. Unfortunately, because the joints provide so much range of motion and are relied on in so many movements and activities, they are also vulnerable to serious injuries. If you are suffering from a torn rotator cuff or a meniscus injury because of harmful repetitive motions required in your job, you may be able to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
At the law office of Jay Gervasi, P.A., we represent injured people in Greensboro and throughout central North Carolina in harmful motion injury cases. Attorney Jay Gervasi has more than 30 years of experience protecting the rights of injured workers, and he is a board-certified specialist in workers’ compensation law by the North Carolina State Bar.

Understanding And Providing Compensation For Knee And Shoulder Injuries
Many torn rotator cuff injuries are the result of sudden jerking or irregular motions of the arm and shoulder. Workers who continually lift boxes over their heads or pull materials off conveyor belts may put unnecessary pressure on their shoulders and can cause permanent damage.
Meniscus injuries are often caused by moving the knee in directions that it should not. Workers who plant their feet and routinely twist around may put stress on their meniscus and ACLs. For some individuals, simply standing all day can put enough pressure on their knees to cause injuries.
