Leg Injuries After an Accident: Know Your Rights
An accident involving a serious leg injury can be life changing and overwhelming for accident victims and their families. When someone injures their leg in a car accident or other motor vehicle accident or when they’re hurt on the job, the injury can result in a lifelong, debilitating, chronic issue.
People who suffer injuries to their legs, knees, feet, or ankles can face steep medical bills, challenging and lengthy recoveries, and a loss of income while out of work. In severe cases, people may not be able to return to work at all, significantly impacting their financial stability.

Common Leg Injuries
For 40 years, our personal injury attorneys have represented accident victims with a wide range of leg injuries. We have helped victims win their personal injury cases for various injuries including:
- Work-related overuse injuries
- Knee injuries
- Foot and ankle injuries
- Broken bones
- Fractured bones

Many leg injuries share similar symptoms – leg pain and swelling, difficulty walking, tenderness, bruising, and redness. Severe leg injuries may result in deformities and even amputation. If you injured your leg in an accident, call your doctor or seek medical attention immediately, then call the personal injury lawyers at Dale E. Anstine. Insurance companies may try to settle your injury claim quickly – do not let them pressure you to settle.
Leg Injury Road to Recovery
After an accident that results in a leg injury, the accident victim has a long road of recovery ahead of them, if they ever fully recover at all. Leg injuries can cause lifelong problems like bad knees, difficulty walking, or the reliance on a cane, walker, or wheelchair.
Traumatic accidents such as car or motorcycle accidents can result in lingering pain that permanently affects the victim's lifestyle. Leg injuries can prevent people from enjoying their interests and hobbies. Older victims are particularly at risk for leg injuries and long-term health problems if they suffer from osteoporosis or arthritis. Fractures take longer to heal for older adults, and the recovery process can be frustrating.
If you were involved in an accident that injured your leg, your doctor may recommend physical therapy, surgery, a splint or brace, skin grafts, or compression therapy. For severe injuries, victims may even experience paralysis or the loss of the leg by amputation.
