Sustaining a knee injury in an accident is a serious situation. Though it may not seem as severe as a brain injury or back injury, a knee injury can result in a lifetime of pain and severely limit your mobility. Without medical attention, your recovery from a knee injury can be in jeopardy. It is important that you obtain a prompt evaluation by a specialist after a car accident or slip-and-fall accident. An orthopedic doctor can accurately diagnose your particular knee injury and recommend the proper course of treatment.
To discuss your options after a knee injury, turn to our staff at the law office of Ronald W. Ramirez, Attorney at Law, in Queens. We are a knowledgeable firm with more than 35 years of experience handling personal injury situations throughout New York City that have resulted in a knee injury or another type of injury.
If you are unable to work due to your knee injury, attorney Ronald Ramirez can work to see that the proper benefits are obtained. At the conclusion of your treatment, we can have your treating physician provide a permanent impairment rating for your injury. Based on this, we can pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered and may suffer in the future.
