In a motor vehicle accident, if the driver’s knee hits the steering wheel, or the dashboard crushes a person’s leg, then serious knee, hip and thigh injuries can occur. Each of these injuries is painful and will require treatment. It is critical to make sure hip-thigh-knee alignment is corrected following a Sarasota trucking accident in order to avoid permanent damage. Some knee, hip, and thigh treatments include:
- Knee injuries such as ACL damage may require arthroscopic surgery to attach the ligament for knee support.
- Hip dislocation may require surgery involving plates and screws to make sure the hip joint heals properly.
- Hip fractures may require a partial or full hip replacement in order to gain mobility.
- Dislocated pelvis or fractures of the pelvis may be life threatening and cause internal organ damage in serious situations and would need emergency surgery.
