TYPES OF KNEE INJURIES
If you have knee problems, they could be related to several possible injuries. An impact, strain, or fall can affect the ligaments, tendons, bones, and cartilage around the knee joint. Some of the most common knee issues include:
Knee injuries often occur due to a forceful impact or sudden twisting motion. Consequently, knees are often injured in motor vehicle accidents, including collisions with other vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, or pedestrians. Slip and fall accidents can also cause the knee to twist unnaturally, leading to injury.
HOW TO SEEK COMPENSATION FOR KNEE INJURIES
Your knees are essential to your mobility. Therefore, a knee injury can have a major impact on your ability to carry out daily tasks, including work duties, housekeeping responsibilities, and recreational activities. Moreover, recovering from a knee injury often requires extensive rehabilitation, which can be physically painful, emotionally challenging, and expensive.
If your knee injury was the result of a car accident, regardless of whether you’re at fault, you can seek compensation for damages through Ontario’s accident benefits. You don’t have to file a lawsuit and can be reimbursed for expenses like lost income and medical costs.
If someone else’s negligent or reckless behaviour caused your knee injury, you may be able to sue them in court for additional compensation. In many instances, you may be compensated for your pain and suffering. Moreover, you may be able to sue for economic losses or out-of-pocket expenses that haven’t been reimbursed by your insurer.
