I Hurt My Knee in a Car Crash, What Should I Do? Do I Need a Lawyer? What Are the Treatments for a Knee Injury?
As an experienced accident attorney, I can tell you that this is an important and time sensitive question. Here is the information:
Since knee injuries range from a mild soft tissue damage to acute dislocation, rupture, or fracture, so does the treatment spectrum. Acute injury may require immediate medical attention at a hospital emergency department. In severe cases, a knee injury may necessitate surgery, pain management, and rehabilitative treatment. In other cases, a doctor may recommend a combination of “RICE,” an acronym for: rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Physical therapies and pain management may also be doctor recommended.
Beware, failure to get timely treatment may result in chronic knee instability or even amputation, if vascular complications occur. Oversight of the severity of a soft tissue injury may result in compartment syndrome and loss of limb. Misdiagnosis or mistreatment may lead to chronic knee instability, loss of ability to walk, and degenerative joint disease. For any knee injury, seek immediate medical treatment.
If you have a knee injury resulting from an accident, you will most likely need the assistance of an experienced lawyer to help you be fairly compensated for your past and future: medical bills; lost wages; and pain and suffering. Feel free to contact me online or on the phone to discuss your case and to help get you started in the right direction on the road to recovery and compensation. Consultations are always free and welcomed. 800-373-8000
