Knee and Leg Injuries
When a person is injured in an incident, their legs or knees may sustain considerable trauma. In these situations, the injured individual may be left with serious mobility and health consequences that can demand immediate medical attention. Even if these injuries are treatable, the physical, emotional, and financial burdens resulting from an injury can prove particularly high. Injured individuals may struggle to handle their injuries and disabilities, especially when facing stressful medical expenses and lost wages. However, compensation may be available in some cases.
Consequences of Traumatic Knee and Leg Injuries
A leg or knee injury can leave behind potentially permanent complications that can cause significant pain and problems with mobility. The following concerns may arise because of an injury to the leg or knee:
- Difficulty walking or running
- Balance difficulties, especially if toes are damaged or lost
- Difficulty bending at the hips, knees, or ankles
- Substantial blood loss, especially if an injury occurs in the upper leg
- Amputation risks
- Pain throughout the leg or around the knee joint
Particularly with damage to the knee, some injuries may be treated, but can drastically increase the possibility of pain or stiffness later in life. To combat these concerns, an injured individual may need to undergo additional treatment or begin long-term pain management care.
If you or someone you love has sustained an injury to the leg or to the knees, there may be legal options available to fight for financial compensation for the wide range of costs associated with these injuries.
