Knee Injuries

The knee is the largest joint in the human body, and one of the most easily injured. Knee injuries are among the most painful and disabling that people can suffer, and the impact of these injuries can last a lifetime.

In 2014, there were 104,090 workplace knee injuries reported in the United States by private industry and state and local government, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The median number of days off reported for workplace knee injuries in the United States in 2014 was 10.

The knee is a pivotal hinge joint, which allows you to flex and extend your leg, well as to slightly rotate your body. Because the knee supports nearly the whole weight of the body, it is vulnerable to both acute injury and osteoarthritis. Some common knee injuries are:

  • A.C.L. (anterior cruciate ligament) damage
  • M.C.L. (medial collateral ligament) damage
  • P.C.L. (posterior cruciate ligament) damage
  • Torn cartilage


A knee injury can be caused by a blow or twist of the knee, from improper landing after a jump, or from too much daily stress. After suffering a knee injury, no matter what the cause, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. A knee injury left untreated can become much worse. Among symptoms of a knee injury are:

  1. Mild to severe pain in the knee
  2. Clicking or popping in the knee
  3. Difficulty walking and/or running
  4. Limited motion of the joint
  5. Tenderness with pressure
  6. Pain while squatting
  7. Knee joint locking
  8. Instability
  9. Swelling

Knee injuries are some of the most common in personal injury lawsuits and workers’ compensation claims. At the law offices of Freeburn Law, we are committed to helping victims of knee injuries gain financial recovery, so that they may then focus on gaining a full physical recovery.
