Knee injuries are common in car wrecks, slip and falls and other types of accidents. For the fortunate, conservative treatment such as rest and physical therapy leads to a complete recovery. For others, the injury might require surgical repair. A knee injury can also make it more likely that you will have similar injuries in the future.

Next Steps After a Knee Injury
The initial focus of any personal injury case should be on obtaining the medical care you need to make as full a recovery as possible. Trying to tough out a knee injury can lead to further damage. In addition, if you fail to obtain medical care, the insurance company will claim that your injury was not caused by the accident.
It is important to complete your medical treatment before you resolve your personal injury case. Otherwise, you may not demand enough compensation to meet your future needs. Some worst-case scenarios include:
- Arthroscopic surgery to repair damaged cartilage or torn ligaments
- Partial knee replacement surgery to replace damaged parts of your knee with metal or plastic parts
- Total knee replacement of your damaged knee with an artificial joint
