Knee Injuries

Out of all the joints in the body that absorb stress, our knees are among the most overused. Knees are the largest and most complex joints in the body. They are vital for mobility, functionality, and weight-bearing. They are also extremely vulnerable to injuries.

As the result of a traumatic accident or assault, any of the components making up a knee can be damaged. These include the bones, cartilage, and ligaments that form the joint, or the tendons, bursae (fluid-filled sacs) and ligaments surrounding the knee joint.

Depending on the type of knee injury sustained in an accident and its degree of severity, injured accident survivors may be required to undergo extensive physical rehabilitation and physiotherapy. In some cases, complicated, intricate surgeries might be required. Oftentimes, people who have sustained complex knee injuries require the use of assistive ambulatory devices, like a can or a walker, for a prolonged period of time.

If someone else’s negligence caused you to sustain a knee injury in an accident, contact Preszler Injury Lawyers today to learn about options for financial compensation that might be available to you.

Common Types of Knee Injuries

There are several different types of knee injuries that can occur as the result of a traumatic accident. Commonly, these include:

  • A tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • Bone fractures, including the patella (kneecap)
  • Meniscus tears, impacting the cartilage between the shinbone and thighbone
  • Bursitis (inflammation in the fluid sacs cushioning the outside of the knee)
  • Patellar tendinitis (irritation of the fibrous tissues that attach muscles to bones)
  • And possibly more

The Costs of Recovery

Not only can sustaining knee injuries be disruptive to an accident survivor’s life, the process of recovery can be physically painful, socially isolating, and emotionally challenging. Many injured accident survivors forced to undergo prolonged periods of recovery develop secondary disabilities in the form of debilitating mental health concerns.

Furthermore, recovering from knee injuries can be expensive. Injured accident survivors often incur substantial financial losses, especially if they are uninsured or their insurance plan does not cover the costs of physiotherapy or assistive equipment. If a knee injury makes it impossible for a person to return to work or continue performing the duties of their job for a prolonged period of time, their financial losses will likely include lost wages and a reduced future earning capability.
