Slip & Fall Accident Injuries
"What kind of injuries can occur after a slip and fall accident?"
As the largest joint in the body, the knee joint hinges the leg between the thigh and the calf. The knee is such a pivotal joint in the human body as it supports a large portion of the body’s weight. Being such a vulnerable body part makes the knee susceptible to injury. Slip and fall accidents often result in knee injuries. Whether it’s an acute wound or a bruise to a part of the knee, the injury can put the hurt person out for a long time until the injury heals. We know the three most common injuries from slip and falls are knee, wrist and soft tissue injuries. Four of the most common knee injuries, according to the American Academy of orthopedic Surgeons are:
- ACL injury
- MCL injury
- PCL injury
- Torn cartilage
