Leg injuries from car accidents

What are some types of leg injuries a victim of an auto accident may suffer?

Michigan auto accident victims may suffer from any or all the leg injuries, which include a broken leg, broken ankle, broken foot, ACL injury (knee), knee bursitis, or a torn meniscus (knee). Anyone of these auto accident leg injuries can have a life-long impact on your physical performance and comfort.

Broken Leg Symptoms?

According to the Mayo Clinic, an auto accident victim that suffers a broken leg, foot/feet or angle may experience symptoms including the following: Deformity, cuts, punctures, or protrusion of bone fragments, swelling, bruising, tenderness, inability to bear weight or walk, immediate throbbing pain, and pain that increases with activity and decreases with rest.

Surgical treatment options for auto accident broken leg victims.

A broken ankle or broken foot may need surgery for an implant fixation device (such as plates, rods, screws, nails or wires) into your broken bone. These surgical options help to maintain proper bone alignment while healing.

But there are less invasive treatments. According to the Mayo Clinic, there is a treatment called “reduction” – this is where a medical doctor manipulates the broken bones into the proper position.

ACL Injury, symptoms and treatment.

An ACL injury is the tearing of an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), this connects the femur to the shinbone and is a primary ligament that stabilizes a knee joint. Accident victims that suffer an injury of the ACL may hear a loud pop sound, severe pain, feeling of the knee giving way with weight, and knee swelling that worsens hours after the injury.
