What is a Knee injury?
The knee is a vital and a delicate joint that enables your mobility. A knee injury can be excruciatingly painful and immobilize you or restrict your mobility to carry out your regular tasks, occupation or recreation. A heavy impact can fracture bones like the kneecap, tear cartilage, displaced joints and tear tissues. These tissues are ligaments or tendons that hold or facilitate the movement of joints, respectively.
How can a Knee injury occur?
A knee injury can occur through an impact, a sudden twisting action or repetitive action. These injuries can be sustained through:
- A vehicle accident
- A slip and fall accident
- Unsafe working conditions
- Medical negligence during surgery
- With wear and tear of the knee joint such as Osteoarthritis
- A new injury that aggravates a pre-existing condition.
Medical assessment of a knee injury involves:
- An X-ray to detect fracture and displacement of bone
- An Ultrasound to assess damages to tissues
- An MRI or CT scan for further assessment of tissues, muscles and cartilage
You may be eligible for compensation
A knee injury can have devastating financial consequences from loss of earnings, medical bills, assisted living, medications, and the list goes on, in addition to emotional distress from pain and suffering. You may be legally eligible for compensation from insurance companies if it involves an accident or CPP disability benefits if you are under the age of 65.
