Leg and Knee Injury

Long Island Leg and Knee Injury Lawyers

Leg and knee injuries can severely immobilize accident victims, either through long rehabilitation processes or even permanently. There are also several instances in which an individual’s legs and knees are affected when other body parts experience brutal impacts, like the spine or feet. Leg and knee injuries are extremely common and vary greatly in terms of severity, but all individuals who suffer from serious leg and knee ailments will undoubtedly face rather expensive medical costs, long rehabilitations, and potentially a loss of income while you’re recovering and can’t work. If your leg and/or knee injuries were the result of an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, then you’ll deserve your rightful compensation to cover both your economic and non-economic damages.

Types of Leg and Knee Injuries

Our knees are technically a significant part of our legs, so it’s very likely that when someone suffers a knee injury they also suffer from other injuries throughout their legs. Some other vulnerable areas of our legs include our ankles, calves, and thighs. Hip and foot injuries are also compiled into the many different common bodily areas in which these types of injuries tend to occur.

Our legs contain muscles, blood vessels, connective tissue, and bones. Some common examples of leg injuries that accident victims sustain include the following:

  • Burns
  • Sprains
  • Broken bones
  • Strains
  • Bursitis
  • Severe cuts/bleeding
  • Blood vessel clots
  • Joint dislocations (ankle, knee, hip)

Some of the specific knee injuries that may occur include:

  • Strains and sprains to knee ligaments. These include the ACL, MCL, and PCL
  • Kneecap fractures
  • Loose bodies due to dislocation, tears or fractures in the knee

There are many situations in which someone doesn’t realize that they’ve injured their leg or knee immediately after an accident, and this is why it’s crucial that everyone seeks medical attention as soon as they can post-accident. Prompt medical evaluations always go a long way in terms of catching injuries before they worsen due to any lack of professional treatment.

Common Accidents that Cause Leg and Knee Injuries

Legs can be squeezed, crushed, pulled, pinned, burned, bitten, hit or stabbed in accidents. Any accident type can result in these types of injuries, particularly within situations in which an individual’s legs or knees are more vulnerable to sustaining the full force of the trauma.

Some of the common accidents that cause leg and knee injuries include:

Leg or Knee Injury Recovery

The overall recovery and rehabilitation processes associated with leg and knee injuries will always vary individually depending on the severity of the injury. But many victims may need the following:

  • Surgery
  • Antibiotics to help fight certain infections
  • Compression therapy
  • Utilizing a cast to set broken bones

It’s typically common for patients to be advised to stay off their leg or knee by utilizing a wheelchair or crutches for a temporary amount of time during their rehabilitation. Rest is always one of the most important aspects of any injury recovery regimen, which is why many leg and knee injury victims may require a prolonged period off work in order to properly and fully heal.

It’s also very common for patients to do their own due diligence on a daily basis in terms of icing and heating their affected areas in order to promote blood flow and pain reduction.

We Help Accident Victims with Knee & Leg Injuries to Obtain Their Rightful Compensation

Your leg is essentially about half of your entire body, which is part of the reason why it’s so common for legs and knees to be injured in accidents of all types. There are instances in which these injuries create permanent mobility loss, which of course has a detrimental effect on an individual’s earning capacity and overall quality of life.

This is why it’s so important for accident victims to fully ensure that their final insurance settlement accounts for all of their losses, and it’s a huge mistake for accident victims to accept any insurance offer before they fully understand what their losses entail and equate to.

Siler & Ingber, LLP has been there for countless accident victims in the past to ensure that their insurance settlements meet all past, current, and future medical expenses, among many other losses. Some of these losses include the following:

  • Property damage
  • Medical care
  • Lost income/earning capacity
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • And much more…

We have close relationships with specialists that help develop detailed life care plans for those who have suffered any kind of long-term or permanent disabilities.

We’ll always conduct a thorough accident investigation, and throughout this process, we’ll be capable of maximizing your compensation by holding responsible parties accountable. Sometimes deciphering these responsible parties isn’t so cut and dry, but our past case results show how we’ve held multiple types of defendants accountable for our clients’ injuries, not simply just negligent individuals.
