A Closer Look at Tibial Plateau Fractures Caused by Crashes
http://www.mallardlawfirm.com/ When traffic collisions occur, leg injuries are often common. One common yet painful injury that occurs in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents or bicycle accidents is a lower leg injury known as a tibial plateau fracture.
The tibia is also known as the shinbone. As the strongest bone and second longest bone in the human body, it takes a lot of force to injure the tibia. So when it is injured, injuries to the femur and knee cap are likely to occur as well. In order for a tibial plateau fracture to have occurred, the lower part of the leg is crushed against the femur in the upper part of the leg—resulting in a crack in the top of the bone that is located below the knee cap. This type of injury often requires surgery and a lengthy recovery that can cost you valuable income and expensive medical bills.
