Knee Injuries

The knee joint is designed to bear weight and facilitate movement. Knee injuries can be exceptionally painful and prohibit normal bending and straightening of the leg, making it difficult to walk or perform other normal, everyday activities. A knee injury can be the result of wear and tear due to overexertion, the aging process or repetitive strain. It also can occur in a sudden accident, such as in a car accident, bicycle accident, slip and fall, or a falling object. No matter the cause, it’s not uncommon for a person with a knee injury never to recover fully which can impact employment and the overall quality of life. When this is the case, a Toronto knee injury lawyer should be contacted. A Toronto injury lawyer can assist in recovering compensation for the injury thereby holding the negligent party responsible.

Types of Knee Injuries

The knee comprises four bones, four major ligaments, shock-absorbing pieces of cartilage (menisci), and small, surrounding fluid-filled sacs (bursas). Additionally, the quadriceps and patellar tendon allow movement in the knee area. Each component of the knee needs to function properly in order for the knee to do its job.

Common knee injuries that warrant attention from a knee injury lawyer in Toronto include:

  • Overstretching or tearing of the ACL, LCL, PCL or MCL (the four ligaments that provide stability for the knee joint)
  • Meniscus tears
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Dislocated patella and
  • Tears to the surrounding tendons

Impact of Injuries

Knee injuries can cause inflammation, swelling, stiffness, instability, and sharp or lingering pain. They pose a unique challenge for patients because they complicate many aspects of life; if your knee isn’t functioning, you may not be able to walk or work. You might not be able to rest well. When your knee is inflamed and you can’t bend it without causing pain, it can slow life to a crawl. When this occurs, it is important not to rush the healing process. Doing so might put you at risk of further injury to the structures in the knee. While it’s tempting to get back to normal activities before you’re ready, follow your doctor’s orders to avoid aggravating the injury and to ensure proper healing.

Compensation That Might Be Available

Knee treatments are costly, and with long-term physical therapy, pain management, and specialist appointments, the bills can be astronomical. Naturally, it’s a good idea to look into all possible forms of compensation when you’ve suffered a serious injury and are unable to resume normal life immediately. You may be able to file a claim to recover damages with the help of a Toronto knee injury lawyer, depending upon the nature of the accident.
