FL Knee Crash Injuries And Compensation
A range of physical harm is possible when cars crash, and because the knee is one of the largest joints of the body, many suffer from knee injuries after a collision. Knee injuries are possible when the joint strikes a hard surface of the car due to the extreme force of an accident, for instance. A knee could be dislocated or broken, leading to pain and long treatment plans.
If you injured your knee in a Florida accident, connect with a professional who has experience securing the best settlement amount possible. Attorneys in Clearwater, Hudson, and Tampa are available to provide you with legal support.
Knee Instability, Pain, and Immobility
How an accident victim copes after a knee injury depends on the extent of the injury and treatment plan. Three bones are part of an individual knee, and if the bones are not aligned correctly due to the impact of a car crash, the dislocated knee will need to be realigned. When this happens, any or all of the following are possible.
- Intense pain and discomfort
- Swelling, sensitivity, and bruising
- Lack of movement, such as an inability to straighten knee
- Feelings of weakness and instability
All accident injuries need to be looked over by a qualified healthcare professional. Even if you are unsure how severe the injury is, you need to talk to a doctor. Medical care leads to optimal chances of fully healing, and what you think could be a minor issue could be an indicator of a large problem.
Pre-Existing Joint Issues and Damage Recovery
Many people have joint injuries in their past due to a sports accident or fall, and sometimes the area is weakened as a result. Then, in a traumatic event such as a car collision, the joint is again injured. What type of treatment plan will happen next depends on the injury. If surgery is required, it is possible a brace will be required until the area regains strength. For some, this means they are unable to work and wages are lost.
Medical care, physical therapy, and lost income can all be part of your damage recovery when another was negligent. To have the worth of your claim assessed, talk to a Florida personal injury lawyer. Attorneys who work on car accident claims know when an amount offered is much lower than what you would be able to achieve if you fought back. Don’t agree to an insurance offer until you understand your options.
