What damages can you claim?
If you have sustained a torn ligament, there’s a lot that you can’t do. You may be wondering if you’ll manage to pay bills, sustain your family, or just go on with normal life if this disability is permanent. This anxiety may interfere with your recovery and cause serious mental issues that impact your overall wellbeing. We can help you seek damages for:
Pain and suffering including mental anguish
Medical expenses (the ones you’ve paid and any future medical expenses you’re likely to incur)
Loss of wages (including lost earning capacity if the disability is likely to be permanent)
Household services (if you can no longer take care of your household as a result of the torn ligament)
Torn ligament injuries
Ligaments are special tissues that connect two bones together or a bone to cartilage. Ligaments can experience different forms of damage including overstretching and tearing. Overstretching and tearing of ligaments can occur when there’s a forceful movement for instance after the impact of a car or motorcycle accident. A slip on the sidewalk can also result in an impact that tears the ligaments. When the ligaments are overstretched or torn, the injury is commonly referred to as a sprain. Sprains can cause severe pain, swelling, and bruising. In some cases, they cause immobility and the person is unable to resume day to day life activities including work.
Some common types of ligament injuries that we’ve experienced at Grillo Law include:
Ankle and wrist sprains as a result of a fall or motor vehicle accident
Whiplash and neck sprains
Torn foot ligaments
Knee ligament sprains
Sprains and tears vary in severity. A mild ligament injury may not cause any joint instability and the pain goes away with time. However, the most severe ligament tears, classified as Grade III are characterized by a significant rupture of the ligament that causes a joint disability. The person may not be able to put any pressure or weight on the affected area for a long time. That part of the body can easily become unusable in Grade III ligament injuries.
