The knee is one of the most complex joints in the body. Anyone who has ever suffered a knee injury will tell you just how very painful they can be. While other types of injury are more frequent in auto accidents, there are some accidents that cause extensive damage to the knee. When this happens, you’re looking at lost wages, current and future medical bills, and horrific pain and suffering over what could be a lifetime. Knee injuries occur in car accidents when there is a jolt to the knee, either indirectly because of the motion the body goes during an accident or directly such as when the knee strikes a solid object in the course of a car accident.
Knee injuries tend to be lifelong. Because of this, you’ll often see very high monetary judgments in knee injury lawsuits. Personal injury lawyers know that in order to get the best possible outcome for clients in these cases, they need to account for a lifetime of pain and medical bills. Car accidents by themselves are extremely traumatic. They interrupt the sense of safety that most people initially have about driving. In addition to the physical pain of the knee injury is the emotional uncertainty that follows a car accident. We don’t just look at the physical injury but the bigger picture that includes a lifetime of pain and suffering because of someone else’s negligence.
Just because your knee is injured in a car accident doesn’t necessarily mean that the other driver was negligent. If you are at fault in your own accident, there’s a chance you won’t qualify for financial compensation from the other driver. However, if a good lawyer can prove that another driver injured you while driving negligently, we will be able to help you get the large amount of compensation you will need to cope with your knee injury, however long it may last.
Some of the most common cases of negligent driving include:
– Driving while intoxicated on alcohol or drugs
– Driving while texting on a cellphone
– Driving even when someone knows they’re extremely sleepy
– Driving so distracted by something that you grossly ignore the rules of the road
– Road rage incidents
