Menisci are pieces of cartilage that cushion the connection between the thighbone and the shinbone. Whenever a knee is forcefully twisted or rotated in an unnatural way, these tissues are very likely to become irritated, damaged, or torn.
In an automotive accident, there is often significant trauma to the legs, which can lead to meniscus injuries. Depending on the severity of the injury, surgery might be required to repair the damaged tissues. Victims of these injuries will have trouble walking and might need assistance to move around, causing them to miss work.
Meniscus Injury Symptoms
- Knee pain
- Locking or popping sensation
Meniscus injuries are not always apparent immediately following an accident. Symptoms may begin days later, or might be masked by other injuries.
Without the right diagnosis, victims of meniscus injuries may suffer unnecessary complications and lose out on fair compensation.
