Knee injuries are very common in car accidents. The kneecap may be shattered or dislocated, or the ligaments and cartilage shredded. At the law offices of E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, our experienced legal team knows how painful and disabling these injuries are, and we know what your case is worth.
If your knee injury was caused by someone else’s negligence — such as a motor vehicle accident, a construction accident or a slip-and-fall — our experienced legal team is committed to maximizing your compensation. Contact us today for proven and aggressive legal representation.
Common Knee Injuries from a Car Accident
The E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy firm has handled hundreds of knee injury cases through our personal injury litigation. We have a strong record of settlements and verdicts, including substantial recoveries for the disabling effects of knee injuries:
- Fractured patella (broken kneecap)
- Dislocated knee (popped kneecap)
- Meniscus tear (torn cartilage)
- Torn ACL, MCL or PCL ligaments
- Ruptured patellar tendon
- Torn quadriceps
- Arthroscopic surgery
Knee injuries can be caused by high impact, as in a car crash; buckling of the knee joint under severe force, as in a fall from a ladder or roof; or unnatural bending or twisting, as in a fall down stairs or a slip on glare ice. We have handled all these scenarios. Our knowledgeable attorneys are familiar with the technical jargon and the medical remedies, which may involve arthroscopic surgery, open knee surgery, knee replacement, casts or knee braces, and grueling physical therapy.
We press the insurance companies to pay for your medical bills and projected care needs, any permanent stiffness or limp or lost range of motion, replacement of income, and the pain and suffering.
