Experienced Injury Representation in New York
All joint injuries are painful and limit your mobility. Knee injuries can prevent you from sitting, standing or walking comfortably, or even sleeping. Depending on the type and severity of the injury, you may need knee replacement surgery.
Knee replacement surgery typically has a lengthy recovery period that can include a few days in the hospital followed by a lengthy stay in a rehabilitative care facility and in-home care. You may be unable to drive and resume other normal activities for four to six weeks. If you do not regain full use of the knee, you may be unable to return to your job.
You may be entitled to compensation if your injury was caused by the negligence of another party. I am personal injury lawyer Ira M. Maurer, and I have been representing injury victims for more than 30 years. Whether you were injured in a vehicle accident, work accident or a slip-and-fall, you may be able to recover damages for your losses.

Knee injuries can be caused by traumatic accidents such as slip-and-falls, falls from elevated heights, car accidents and motorcycle accidents. Railroad and construction accidents are also common causes of knee injuries.
Any accident with sufficient force can result in fractures to the lower leg bone in the knee joint or the kneecap, as well as trauma to the soft tissues such as:
- ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears
- PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) tears
- MCL (medial cruciate ligament) tears
- Quadriceps tendon tears
- Torn meniscus (tear of the knee cartilage)
- Fractured patella (knee cap)
You can also suffer cumulative trauma injuries to the knees. Repetitive stress/cumulative trauma injuries can be caused by lifting or carrying heavy items, and walking on uneven surfaces. A cumulative trauma injury can cause pain, burning, tingling, numbness or reduced range of motion that may prevent you from working or doing daily activities.
I will aggressively fight to help you obtain full compensation under the law for your pain and suffering, and the costs of your medical care, including surgeries, physical therapy and follow-up care. You will also need compensation for lost income, especially if your knee injury prevents you from returning to work in the future.
