What are the Different Types of Knee Injuries?
Knee injuries can be caused by numerous regular work activities, whether you carry heavy loads around a warehouse or were carrying a new monitor to your desk. You may suffer a sudden tear in a ligament due to twisting the wrong way or after a sudden fall. Even serious work-related vehicle accidents can result in damaging knee injuries.
Common types of knee injuries include:
- Tibia fractures
- Posterior cruciate ligament (PLC) tears
- Fibula fractures
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
- Meniscus tears
- Medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears
- Patellar tendon tears
- Knee dislocations
An injured worker may require long immobilization periods to allow the injury to heal, such as wearing a cast or brace, physical therapy, medications, surgical intervention, steroid injections, or even total knee replacement in extreme cases.
These can be very costly injuries. That is why it is important that you turn to a practiced knee injury attorney in Atlanta who understands how to develop and gather the evidence and information necessary to secure the best possible settlement on your behalf.
