Knee Injury in Miami

Picture of Knee Injury

Miami Car Accidents and Knee Trauma

Car accidents cause a high number of injuries every year. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, there are around 2.35 million injuries or disabilities caused by car accidents annually.

Often the injuries that occur are different from what people usually expect. One of the many hidden injuries to look out for after an accident involves knee trauma. Often during a crash, a driver/passenger is thrown forward and will strike their knee on the dashboard. This direct collision can result in many injuries including a shattered kneecap.

Furthermore, the cartilage can also be damaged resulting in a torn knee. For example, sometimes when a driver will brake so hard trying to avoid an accident that their knee will become forcefully compressed. This severe injury is painful, often requires surgery, and is not always evident right away. It could take months for subtle injuries to develop enough inflammation to become apparent.

What to Do After a Miami Car Accident

After a car accident, you should always see a doctor immediately. Although you may feel fine at the moment, injuries can worsen over time, and symptoms like pain, discomfort, dizziness, and numbness can appear days after the crash.

Getting medical attention as soon as possible is the best thing for your health, and it will also strengthen your injury claim. If you wait several days or weeks after the crash to seek medical attention, it might be harder to prove that your injuries stem from the accident.

The next thing you should do is consult with a personal injury attorney. The aftermath of a car accident can be chaotic and confusing, especially if you have to deal with the hardship of a personal injury. Hiring an attorney will give you peace of mind knowing your best interests are defended at all times. They will handle the legal work, so that you can focus on recovery.

Benefits of Hiring an Attorney

Most cases get settled out of court. However, hiring an attorney can help you reach a healthy settlement with your insurance company.

Florida is a no-fault accident state, which means that you will file a claim with your insurance company after a crash to receive compensation for medical bills and lost wages. Remember that insurance adjusters work for their company and not you. Often, they will try to save money by pressuring you to sign a settlement as soon as possible.

Ignore the urge to settle and consult your options with a personal injury attorney instead. They will thoroughly review your case to get you the maximum compensation for your claim, and in some cases, might even be able to help you recover additional compensation for damages not covered by insurance providers.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
