Nebraskan residents like you who have been involved in a car crash may have ended up with various injuries. While damage done to the head and neck are popularly discussed, injuries to the knees can have an equally significant impact. At McHenry Haszard Law, we will carefully discuss this potential impact and how it may affect your quality of life.
First of all, there are the financial costs. Not only do you need to deal with recovery, but you may also lose income. This is because knee injuries can be quite hard to heal from. Some cases require surgery, and others require extensive rest. This means you cannot work to your usual level, or perhaps work at all, which leads to lost wages.
Then, there are the medical expenses. You may need physical therapy, surgery, or medications for infections or pain management. These prices, along with visits to the hospital or doctor, can add up quickly.
Knee injuries also take quite a long time to heal from in many cases. This is because of the location of the knee. Since you use your knees so often every single day, it's almost impossible to rest without moving at all. In cases requiring surgery, the rest time can be extended even longer, and you will also have to be vigilant against infection.
