A knee injury can be serious. It can affect the ligaments and tendons that surround the knee joints, as well as damage the bones, cartilage and ligaments that make up the joint. It can be very painful and impact all aspects of your life.
Victims injure their knees from accidents ranging from a blown knee due to a fall to tripping and landing awkwardly. Injuries can include ligament injuries, tendon injuries, bursitis and dislocated knee caps.
Accidents can take place just about anywhere, including at the workplace and in public areas. A lot of times a common factor is negligence on the part of someone else.
A serious knee injury can take weeks and even years to fully recover. Some victims face a lifetime of pain. It can affect your ability to perform your job and result in a loss of income.
