Florida Knee Injury FAQs

Knee injuries can seem like they are not serious, but often times they progressively get worse with time. We use our knees for walking, driving, ​and nearly all physical activity. A knee injury can significantly reduce your quality of life. You need to protect yourself in case you injure your knee in an accident.


  • Seek emergency medical attention (even before calling a lawyer!) Your health is paramount.
  • Follow up on your medical treatment. If you don't follow prescribed treatment plans, it could hurt your case.
  • Contact a Florida knee injury lawyer. Even if you don't intend on using a lawyer, you can get helpful information.
  • Keep a journal of your recovery. Your recovery may have ups and downs, and you will need to remember important details.
  • Keep track of missed time at work, including any sick time take.

What should I do if I injure my knee in an accident in Florida?

If your knee is injured in an auto accident, slip or trip and fall, or other type of accident, ​you might be entitled to just compensation. A serious knee injury can result in surgery and physical therapy. The average cost for a knee replacement is close to $50,000 and the time involved with physical therapy is extensive as well.


Any good knee injury attorney will seek the following:

  • Present and future medical costs
  • Lost wages (how long will you be out of work?)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium


Every case is different, however, but the same principles that apply to other personal injury cases also apply to knee injury cases.

What compensation can I receive for my knee injury?

Do I even need a Florida knee injury attorney?

Not every knee injury claim requires the use of an attorney. Claims where the injury is not serious, for instance. However, it doesn't hurt to consult with an attorney as knee injuries can develop over time. You need to protect yourself in case injuries manifest later. We offer free knee injury consultations and we'll help you find the right attorney even if we can't take your case.

Will it impact my knee injury case if I do not immediately seek treatment?

If my knee injury does not manifest until later, what Are my options for filing a claim?

If you have an immediately apparent knee injury or if your knee injury manifests later due to an accident, then not seeking immediate medical attention will most likely impact your case negatively. 

A common occurrence is when a victim of an accident has a seemingly minor knee injury and they can feel fine after the accident. Instead of taking the ambulance to the hospital, they get a ride home. Later on, however, the pain manifests. It could be that night, or days later.


Once the adrenaline from the accident wears off and your knee starts to feel pain, you might realize you have a claim for damages in Florida.  It is important to seek medical attention as soon as pain manifests if you haven't already been treated. (even before calling a knee injury lawyer!)


When seeking medical attention, it is important to tell your doctor that you have been injured in an accident and that the accident is listed as a cause of the knee injury. Medical providers and insurance companies use specific coding when treating knee injuries and knee injury victims tend to receive similar types of care.


So if you have sustained a knee injury or other type of injury in an accident, it is important that the physician notes that in your medical records.


The statute of limitations in Florida for personal injury due to the negligence of another, including knee injury claims, is Four years. There are always exceptions however, so it is wise to talk to a knee injury attorney about your claim.
