Qualified Knee Injury Lawyer in Toronto
Knee injuries can be exceptionally painful and debilitating. When the bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons, or any other components within the knee are damaged during an accident, the person can suffer serious pain and restricted mobility. Serious accidents such as bicycle/car accidents or slip and fall incidents can result in knee injuries. If you or a loved one sustained knee injuries in an accident that was caused by negligence, you may be entitled to file a claim for compensation. Our catastrophic injury lawyer in Toronto can help you determine if you have a case. You may also be entitled to compensation if the knee injuries were caused by some form of negligence.
Impact of Knee Injuries
Individuals who have sustained knee injuries may suffer from:
Swelling, inflammation, stiffness, and instability of the knee
Sharp or lingering pain
Difficulty in walking or standing
Inability to rest well or sleep due to pain
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to avoid rushing back to normal activities as you could damage the knee further. Follow the doctor’s guidelines on how to avoid worsening the injury and increase your chances of recovery.
Proving Fault in a Knee Injury Claim
The process of proving fault in any personal injury claim can be complex since there are different laws that apply and could impact on your case. For instance, if the knee injury occurred at the workplace, it will have different legal implications from an injury that was a result of medical negligence. You must seek legal help from an experienced law firm that understands all the relevant laws that pertain to your specific case. At Grillo Law, we will take time to understand your case and leverage the right laws to ensure you get the maximum compensation possible.

What Forms of Compensation Are Available for Knee Injuries?
Compensation for knee injuries can be broken down into two main elements:
Compensation for pain and suffering: Knee injuries can cause recurrent pain and swelling that gets worse over time. This pain can make walking or weight-bearing difficult for the victim. The amount of compensation you receive for pain and suffering will depend on the severity of the knee injury and the length of time that you will be affected.
Compensation for financial losses and medical expenses: With a knee injury, it can be difficult to return to your normal lifestyle. This injury could limit your ability to work especially if your job involves physical work. This means you may be entitled to compensation for loss of income. Add to that, you may need to cover extra expenses such as travel to and from the hospital, purchasing mobility equipment, hospital visits, medication, and therapy.
At Grillo Law, we assess the details of your case and ensure that your claim not only includes the losses you’ve incurred immediately but also projected losses which you are likely to incur until the knee heals fully. Our catastrophic injury lawyer in Toronto will work with you to secure the compensation you need to resume a regular and pain-free life.
