Ligament and Tendon Injuries
Ligament and tendon injuries can affect your life for many years and in some cases permanently. If a torn ACL or PCL ligament affects your gait or ability to walk, run or exercise, it can lead to systemic problems affecting other parts of your body.
Obtaining Treatment for a Ligament or Tendon Injury
In California, your medical provider may have a financial incentive to recommend conservative treatment of your injury. While surgery is expensive and may leave you unable to work for a period of time, it may result in improved mobility — closer to what you had before the accident. If you are unsure of the treatment recommended by your provider, you should get a second opinion
Our goal as attorneys is to help make you as whole as possible after an accident. That means helping you get proper medical care, as well as compensation for lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life and other damages.
What If I Don’t Have Medical Insurance
If you’ve been injured due to another person’s negligence, it’s important that you receive medical treatment for two reasons. The first reason is to help you recover physically from the accident. The second is to help you recover financially. Medical documentation of your injury is necessary to settle or try your case.
