Serving Victims of Leg Injuries Nationwide From Our Texas Offices in Corpus Christi, San Antonio, and Austin.
Leg Injuries are a common type of injury in automotive accidents, workplace accidents, and slip, trip, or fall events. A serious leg injury could be crippling, lifelong, and caused by a severely broken leg, a ligament tear that supports the knee, or the entire loss of a leg during an accident.
Common Types of Knee Injuries
- Dislocation, when the bones are forced out of their normal position or alignment.
- Patella fracture, the ends of the tibia (proximal tibia), or the femur (distal femur).
- Meniscus or ligament tears, such as to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or the medial collateral ligament (MCL). These can be caused by a sudden twisting of the leg during an auto accident, by an animal or dog attack, or by a workplace slip and fall.
Leg Injury Help and When to Call an Attorney
A broken leg or knee injury can likely heal over several weeks with a cast or brace to help with immobilization. Patients may undergo physical rehabilitation to strengthen leg muscles and store knee or leg functions.
If you have a leg injury, seek proper medical attention immediately and contact Thomas J. Henry to discuss your claim with an experienced attorney and determine if you are owed compensation.
