Car Wrecks Commonly Cause Knee Injuries


March 31, 2013

The knee is one of the most complex joints in the human body; it is comprised of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Tendons and muscles allow the knee to move and return to its proper place. Many traumatic injuries are caused by direct blows which can occur in a car accident.

Common knee injuries from a car wreck include:

  • Cartilage Injuries and Disorders

  • Tendon Injuries

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries (ACL)

  • Distal Femur Fractures

  • Hyperextended Knee

  • Meniscal Tears

  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries (PCL)

Proper treatment of serious knee injuries is critical to making a complete recovery. A comprehensive treatment program should be devised that includes a full array of treatment options and takes into account the short- and long-term benefits of each. In addition, knee injuries often get worse over time. Failure to take into account the possible long-term medical complications of a knee injury can leave a victim paying for medical treatment out of their own pocket.
