Phoenix Knee, Shoulder and Joint Injury Attorney
Many victims of motor vehicle or other accidents suffer injuries to their joints, most notably their knees, shoulders and sometimes ankles and wrists. These injuries are often very painful, cause at least temporary loss of function, often require expensive medical care and even surgery and may limit the injured person’s ability to work or participate fully in their usual daily activities.
Common Knee Injuries
The knee is made up of body parts including the cartilage, ligaments, tendons and muscles all of which function as one unit. Injury to any one of these components can affect the whole functinality of the knee. The most frequent knee injuries are:
- Fracture or Contusion to the Patella
- Torn Meniscus
- ACL Tear (anterior cruciate ligament)
- MCL Tear (medial collateral ligament)
All of these injuries can be very painful and incapacitating. In motor vehicle accidents, these knee injuries often occur with impact to the dashboard or other traumatic insults to the knees. Knee injuries also frequently occur in slip and fall accidents in store settings or as a result of unsafe premises.
Common Shoulder Injuries
- Torn Rotator Cuff
- Other Significant Contusions and Abrasions to the Shoulder
If you have suffered injuries to your knees, shoulders or other joints, early diagnosis and treatment are extremely important in restoring your good health in the shortest amount of time. It is also important to properly document your injuries in order to later persuade a claims adjuster of the seriousness of your injury and thus maximize your recovery. If you wait several days or even weeks to be medically examined, the adjuster will challenge your credibility and the authenticity of your injury.
We have processed thousands of cases for clients who have suffered significant joint injuries. We can answer all questions for you on issues relating to liability, the value of your case and the claims process. We can also explore all possible insurance recoveries. We can also refer you to qualified medical care, in the event you have difficulty finding a doctor on your own. Many of our doctors are board certified and agree to work on a lien basis, meaning they will wait to be paid until the case is resolved. We also have years of experience in dealing with insurance adjusters and insurance defense attorneys. Insurance companies are often stingy these days and it is very difficult for victims to successfully represent their own interests. If we agree to represent you, we process most joint injury cases on a contingency fee basis. Accident victims should be able to recover all of their past and future medical expenses, compensation for pain and suffering, damages for permanent injury and damages for loss of earnings and loss of future earning capacity.
