What are common knee injuries caused by car accidents?
Knee injuries caused by car accidents can cover a wide range. Whether your knee hits a part of the car during your crash or an object in your vehicle strikes your knee, serious knee injuries can happen in an instant. If you’re experiencing knee pain after a car accident, you need to have it checked out to see if there is a more serious underlying injury. Some of the most common – and most serious – knee injuries include:
- Knee fracture (broken bones in knee)
- Torn meniscus (tear to the disc part of the knee between the bones)
- Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury (often called ‘dashboard knee’ since these injuries often involve the driver’s or passenger’s knee hitting the car’s dashboard)
- Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury (often caused by an object in the car hitting your knee in a crash)
Whatever type of knee injury you’re dealing with after your accident, our law firm can help investigate your crash and be your voice for justice.
What makes car accident knee injury cases so complicated?
You might think your legal case will be straightforward if another driver clearly caused your car crash, which resulted in your knee injury. The reality is many car accident cases turn out to be complicated. Some of the reasons why include:
- The driver who caused your knee injury denies causing your car accident.
- An at-fault driver claims you caused your car accident.
- The other driver lies to police or other investigators about what happened.
- An at-fault driver’s insurance company denies your knee injury accident claim.
A negligent driver may have been texting, driving recklessly, speeding or asleep at the wheel. But if the driver denies doing anything wrong and won’t accept responsibility, you are put in the position of having to prove fault.
Don’t expect help from the insurance company. Their main interest is to pay you as little as possible, because that helps them keep their profits as high as possible. They’ll question the seriousness of your injuries. Or they’ll make a lowball settlement offer. They are hoping you’ll settle for less and go away.
You know you didn’t do anything wrong. You shouldn’t have to pay for another driver’s reckless or negligent behavior. That’s why our law firm wants to meet with you as soon as possible. We know how to investigate car accidents. We know how to deal with insurance companies. If they refuse to cooperate, we will not hesitate to file car accident knee injury lawsuit on your behalf.

The stakes are high after your car accident injury. If you don’t take decisive legal action, you might not get the financial compensation you need and deserve for your knee injury. Expenses can add up fast in these cases, especially if you need knee surgery. We can demand the money you deserve. That way, you can focus on what really matters – your recovery.
Many people wonder if they can afford to hire an attorney. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis. That means you owe us nothing unless we recover financial compensation for you, whether through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict. If you don’t recover compensation, we don’t get paid.
It’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. While the law in Texas allows two years from the date of your accident to take legal action, time is not on your side. Over time, evidence gets lost or destroyed. Witnesses forget important details. The sooner we can get started on your case, the better.
