Torn ACL and Knee Injuries
Knee injuries are commonly experienced in motor vehicle accidents, sports, and slip and fall cases. When knees twist or bend involuntarily due to an external force, it places stress on ligaments, cartilage, or joints resulting a variety of painful injuries. Common types include posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries, medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries, torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), and sprains or strains.
With any knee injury, it is important to seek medical care immediately. Any of these injuries may extensive therapy and lifestyle changes in order to be rehabilitated and often surgical intervention is required as well. All of these typically involve a high amount of medical expenses, time off work and away from your usual activities.
You may be inclined to handle the claim against the at-fault party alone to move past the incident, but knee injuries can be complex claims to present to an insurance company. For example, you were injured while working or at a public place, there may be issues of responsibility to consider which a lawyer is best-suited to research and argue on your behalf. Also, insurers commonly offer low settlements to victims which do not even cover their past and expected medical expenses. A personal injury attorney can handle your claim and avoid these pitfalls that reduce your chance of recovery.
The attorneys of Oldham & Delcamp have experience dealing with insurers and negotiating with at-fault parties to seek adequate compensation for your injuries. Available compensation includes past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and emotional distress damages.
