Learn How Our AV® -Rated Knee Injury Law Firm Can Prove Your Claim
Your right to full damages in knee injury cases
When your knee is injured in an accident and you have pain for days, weeks or months, you have experienced a serious injury. In Florida car accident litigation, however, you can collect the full range of your damages only if you prove a permanent injury or impairment. When the injury involves soft tissue, cartilage or ligament damage to the knee, the central issue will be whether the injury is permanent.
At the law firm of Baker & Baker, our Pensacola, Florida injury attorneys work to prove that your injury crosses the permanency threshold, so you stand to collect a great deal more in damages. We work closely with our clients and medical experts to present the evidence of an accident-related knee injury and what it means for the victim.
In many cases, severe soft tissue trauma caused by twisting or a blunt-force blow will cause knee problems for years to come. Different people recover from ligament damage or a meniscus tear in different ways. We focus on proof of your injury and the extent of the harm it causes you.
Why knees are easily injured
The knee is the largest joint in the human body, consisting of four bones and a network of ligaments and muscles. Not only do knees bear much of our weight, they take a lot of punishment. If you follow sports, you know that knee injuries are common among athletes. When they are exposed to the trauma of a car accident, injuries may include:
- Fractured knee bone or crushed kneecap (patella)
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) damage
- Medial collateral ligament (MCL) damage
- Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) damage
- Knee dislocation
