About Leg Injuries
Leg injuries are common in car accident cases and slip and falls. Leg injuries include dislocations, fractures, sprains and strains, bone bruises, muscle bruises, and lacerations.
Fractures – or broken bones – are very painful and often result from a victim’s leg striking something in the vehicle such as the instrument panel or steering wheel or as a result of a crushing impact.
Fractures can be broken into categories which include: compound fracture (broken bone pierces through the skin), closed fracture (broken bone does not penetrate the skin), complete fracture (bone snapped into multiple parts), incomplete fracture (bone cracked only but not separated), displaced fracture (bone fragments are not aligned following break), and transverse fracture (break is aligned in a straight line).
Common fractures of the leg include tibia fracture, fibula fracture, and femur fracture.
While leg injuries are rarely life-threatening, they cause significant disruption to your life and can even be permanent. Fortunately, many can be relatively minor and fully recovered from.
- Sprains – Sprains can be serious enough to cause pain and loss of mobility for months. And you may experience long-term instability in your ankle. However, you can most often make a nearly full recovery from these injuries.
- Broken or fractured bones – Fractures are when your bones generally stay in alignment, but have cracks running through. Comminuted fractures, however, are when your bone shatters to pieces. Broken bones are just as they sound – your bone has a clean break that runs all the way through. These injuries can easily take months or years to recover from. And in some cases, they can be permanent.
- Dislocated joint – Dislocations cause intense pain and usually result from serious accidents. Symptoms include swelling, bruising, numbness, tingling, and loss of movement for months afterwards.
- Nerve damage – Your legs contain many complex nerve systems. Minor damage can cause tingling or prickling sensations, numbness, or reduced sensation. Severe damage may lead to difficulty walking, an inability to sense temperatures, and difficulty controlling your legs.
- Meniscus tear – Each of your knees has two menisci, which are rubbery disks that stabilize your knee. Injured menisci can cause difficulty with walking and balance.
- Amputation – It’s as painful and awful as it sounds. Recovery takes years and is both physical and psychological.
