Most knee injuries are caused by a sudden twist or movement or by carrying or lifting heavy objects. The ramifications of a knee injury can be severe and lead to a lengthy recovery.
Although there are numerous ways for a knee injury to occur, some of the most common include:
No matter how the knee injury occurs, it needs to be taken seriously. Even a knee injury that seems relatively minor can worsen over time and require multiple surgeries. Pain can increase with age and what seems like a minor ailment could develop into chronic pain.
Further, an injured knee is often prone to re-injury. It is extremely important that you see a doctor immediately to be evaluated and have the severity of the injury documented.
Although each person’s body reacts differently to an injury, there are some common signs and symptoms of a knee injury that you should take seriously.
There are varying degrees of knee injuries. Some are simple and with a little rest and time will heal on their own. But many others are severe and require surgical intervention.
Only a qualified physician will be able to determine the specific injury to the knee.
A knee injury should be evaluated promptly by a doctor – it is impossible to tell the severity of the injury by looks alone.
Many knee injuries require surgery and or rehabilitation to restore full function. This could mean as little as weeks but as long as months off of work for a full recovery. When older adults suffer knee injuries, it could be especially debilitating and more time-consuming for the injury to heal.
If you suffer an injury by motor vehicle accident, a slip-and-fall, or while at work, you will need to prove who is at fault for the accident. This is also true if you suffered an injury due to medical malpractice.
A thorough investigation will need to be completed in order to build a strong case against the guilty party. That is where SMT Legal can help – and at no cost, unless we win money for you.
Our experienced and aggressive attorneys will conduct a full investigation and gather evidence to determine the cause of the injury. This may include investigating all police reports, speaking to witnesses of the accident or with medical personal who may have been involved in the case of medical malpractice.
After a case has been built, your attorneys can seek compensation from all parties involved or their insurance companies. They can start negotiations with the insurance companies or prepare your case for litigation or trial.
