    If you’ve relied on your legs to get you around all your life, then you might not realize how devastating a leg injury can be until you suffer through a major accident. A leg injury means lost mobility. It may even mean the loss of the ability to work, both in the short-term and in the long term. It can mean the loss of hobbies and quality of life.

    Thus, it’s very important to work with an attorney who takes your leg injuries seriously.

    We understand that there is nothing minor about these injuries, and you deserve full compensation when they’re the result of a negligent act.

    Most Common Leg Injuries

    The most common leg injuries sustained in car accidents are:

    • Fractured femurs
    • Tibia or fibula fractures
    • Ligament injuries
    • Knee injuries
    • ACL injuries
    • Sciatica
    • Crush injuries
    • Lacerations
    • Nerve damage

    Some leg injuries are so serious that they’ll require amputations.

    The most common leg injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents are:

    • Fractures
    • Cuts and abrasions
    • Torn ACLs
    • Torn MCLs

    Long-Term Effects of Leg Injuries

    Some leg injuries clear up within a matter of weeks.

    Others result in life-changing outcomes, such as amputations.

    Somewhere in between are the injuries that lead to lifelong complications. Chronic pain, weaker or stiffer knees, weaker or stiffer ankles: all can be a result of these initial injuries, and can result in reduced mobility and a reduced ability to work, live, and pursue hobbies.

    Average Medical Costs for Leg Injuries

    Leg injuries are rarely cheap.

    • Initial emergency room treatment can cost up to $3,000.
    • Initial X-rays can cost up to $1,000.
    • Non-surgical treatment for a broken leg can cost $2,500.
    • Surgical treatment for a broken leg or injured knee costs $17,000 to $35,000 or more.
    • Crutches can cost $15 to $100.

    If you need to have metal hardware in your legs or knees removed, that can cost up to $11,710.

    Physical therapy for leg injuries can take weekly sessions for 2 to 3 months, and cost roughly $150 per session.

    Some costs are even higher. On Health Cost Helper, some patients reported the following amounts:

    • $50,000 for a broken tibia and fibula.
    • $109,111 for a broken leg.
    • $9,685 for a broken ankle.
    • $109,000 for a broken femur.
    • $181,477.80 for a tibia depressed fracture with 6 pins.
    • $5,000 for a hairline fracture and a torn ACL.
    • $18,000 for a broken ankle.

    The truth is, medical costs can vary wildly depending on your insurance policy, the medical center you’re sent to, and whether you’re in network or out-of-network, not just for your medical insurance policy but for your auto insurance policy. This is why we work with our clients to help them secure top notch medical care: we can often help you navigate these pitfalls.

    We also, of course, help you get full compensation for all of these medical costs! Without a personal injury lawyer, you might end up having to pay all these costs out of pocket.
