As a Connecticut driver who was recently involved in a car crash, it wouldn’t be unusual for you to experience injuries. Miller, Rosnick, D’Amico, August & Butler, P.C., are here to talk about knee injuries in specific, which are often overlooked.
Your knees are not usually the first thing you’re going to be worried about after getting into a crash, and for good reason. Any potential damage done to the brain, skull, spine or back is going to be a more immediately pressing matter. However, knee damage should not go overlooked or untreated, as it can also have a negative impact on your health.
Knee injuries most commonly affect your mobility. Since you depend on your knees to leap, run, walk, or bend, it is crucial for them to function well. Otherwise, you could find yourself having to take time off of work because you are simply unable to work with your current level of mobility.
Knee damage can also be quite costly. Physical therapy may be required to regain full strength. Surgery is sometimes necessary. Medical devices like crutches or braces can cost a lot, as well. Between the high expenses and possibility of having a limited income, your finances can easily take a hit.
