As a Louisiana resident who has recently been involved in a crash, you understand just how devastating the resulting injuries can be. However, there are some injuries that may be deceptively low-key at first while actually being quite harmful. Knee injuries can fall under that category. We at MGM Injury Attorneys will discuss the potential impact of a knee injury on your overall well-being.
The knee is responsible for many important functions in your daily life. Not only do they allow you to bend and leap, but they are a crucial part of your ability to walk and run. No matter what sort of job you have, chances are you have to do at least a little standing, walking, balancing or bending every day. Because of that, being in a situation where you can't use your knees at all can seriously impede your ability to work.
On top of the potential loss of wages, temporary as it may be, you also have hospital bills to contend with. They can stack up quickly, especially considering some knee injuries require surgery and will usually demand bedrest of some sort. You may also need physical therapy over an extended period of time to regain full function in the knee, and might also require pain medication. These long-term expenses stack up quickly.
