Knee, Hip and Ankle Injuries

Injuries to the knees, hips, and ankles can be especially debilitating. Not only is an injury to one of these body parts painful – it affects the whole body. We depend on the knees, hips and ankles for weight support, movement, and mobility.

At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, we represent people who have suffered serious injuries to the knees, hips, and ankles in an accident.

If you have been injured, schedule a free consultation with an attorney from our firm. If you are unable to come to our office because of your injury, we can come to you.

Have questions about injury law and what options are available to you? Check out our personal injury FAQ page.

Knee Injuries

The knee is a complicated, strong, weight-bearing joint. The knee has a number of functions – movement, raising and lowering the body, bending and extending the leg, supporting the body, etc. It is comprised of four parts: bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.

Some knee injuries include:

  • Knee sprains
  • Knee strains
  • ACL injuries
  • Bursitis/tendinitis
  • Dislocation
  • Knee fractures

An injury to the ligaments or tendons surrounding the knee can result in a sprain or strain. In more serious cases, the ligaments or tendons may be torn completely. Hyperflexion or hyperextension of the knee, or overuse of the knee, can result in these injuries.

Treatment for knee injuries can range from physical therapy to bracing to surgery.

Hip Injuries

The hip is a strong, stable joint that allows for a wide range of motion.

Some common hip injuries include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Osteoarthritis caused by repetitive motions or stress
  • Dislocation
  • Fractures

Treatment for hip injuries varies depending on the type and severity of the injury and many other fractures, but may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Injections
  • Medication
  • Surgery
  • Hip replacement

A hip injury can be the result of a fall or a motor vehicle accident. It can also be the result of a workplace injury. A worker may fall on a slippery floor, fall from a ladder or be injured by a piece of equipment.

In any case – whether the injury occurred at work or in an accident outside of work – it is important for victims to understand their legal options. When an injury occurs at work, the worker can seek workers’ compensation benefits. When the injury occurred apart from work but was caused by a negligent person or party, the victim may be eligible for significant compensation.

Ankle Injuries

Ankle injuries are very common among car accident victims. An ankle injury can be the result of damage to ankle tendons, ligaments or bones. Sprains, strains, and fractures are common injuries to the ankle.

An x-ray or MRI may be needed to determine the full extent of the injury.

In ankle fractures, nonsurgical or surgical treatment may be administered. A doctor will evaluate whether the ankle is stable or unstable, which will determine which treatment is administered. Physical therapy may also be a part of the treatment plan.

When an ankle or foot injury is the result of a car accident or work injury, victims may be eligible for compensation.

Causes Of Knee, Hip And Ankle Injuries

Knee, hip, and ankle injuries can be the result of a motor vehicle accident or slip-and-fall accident, for example.

They can also be the result of a workplace accident. Falling from a ladder, falling on a slippery surface, or being injured in an accident caused by a defective tool, for example, can all lead to knee, hip, and ankle injuries.

When an accident happens at work – or when an accident happens that is the result of another person or party’s negligence – victims may be eligible for significant compensation.
