The office of William Bill Hurst has represented thousands of Hoosiers in various kinds of accidents resulting in serious knee and leg injuries. Our law office has the top rating given by Martindale Hubble, an important rating source. An experienced Indianapolis knee and leg injury lawyer knows that motor vehicle accidents are extremely hard on knees and ankles, causing broken bones and torn ligaments and cartilage that can affect the injured person’s ability to walk and stand. You are likely to injure your Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) during a car accident as well. For more information on this specific type of injury, click here. Also, knee dislocation is rare but commonly associated with auto accidents and severe trauma. If you sustained one of these injuries as result contact an Indianapolis knee and leg injury lawyer immediately. Click here to read more about knee dislocation.
In car accidents and truck crashes, the legs are very confined. Your knees are only 3 inches away from the steering wheel or dash. It’s quite common for the knee to be struck severely in a crash, causing a PCL tear (also called “dashboard knee”). This is particularly common in rear end accidents. When drivers (and passengers) slam their foot on the brake and keep their foot hard to the floor as they try to prevent the collision, the foot and ankle often suffers severe trauma on impact.
In motorcycle accidents, it’s frequently the lower legs and feet that suffers crushing injuries when the cycle is stuck from the side or if the rider has to lay the bike down to avoid a collision.

Just because you had a clear x-ray that does not mean you don’t have a serious injury. ACL and PCL tears and synovitis can’t be seen on an x-ray. To see internal swelling of the knee, it often requires an MRI to find it. With serious fractures of the knee, it’s not uncommon to develop arthritis, a degenerative problem of the joint that is both painful and disabling.
To ensure you receive full and fair financial compensation, we also look at how your knee injury and/or leg injury is affecting your daily life. Have you lost mobility? Can you still walk or stand for periods of time (if one leg is now shorter than the other, this can be difficult)? Do you walk with a limp? Can you work? Can you still do household activities?
