The knee is the most commonly injured joint by adolescent athletes with an estimated 2.5 million sports-related injuries annually. But knee fractures also occur every day on the road, in the workplace, and in unsafe public conditions.
At best, serious knee fractures cause acute pain, discomfort, and loss of income. But, since qualified medical treatment is tough to afford for families already operating without a primary provider, many victims go on to live with chronic pain, stiffness, and mobility loss.
Unfortunately, many Canadians miss opportunities to acquire the compensation they deserve. Failing to research legal options in the wake of an injury costs victims millions of dollars each year and imposes lower quality of life on people who deserve better.
If you or a member of your family sustained a severe knee fracture due to another person’s actions or negligence, you may be entitled to compensation to cover the cost of treatment, rehabilitation, and income lost.
Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers at Oatley Vigmond can determine your eligibility and explain your options.

Our personal injury lawyers know knee fractures
With more than four decades of experience in this kind of personal injury claim, our team understands knee fractures.
Serious injuries include bends, small cracks, complete shattering of the bone, and fractures that cause the bone to be forced through the skin. Beyond the kneecap or patella itself, knee fractures can affect the thigh bone or femur, the two bones in the lower leg called the tibia and fibula, and any of the bone or tissue surrounding the knee joint.
Commonly, knee fractures result from slip and fall accidents, motor vehicle crashes, sports injuries, and direct hits to the knee. When your or a loved one’s knee is fractured, a number of symptoms manifest indicating the damage sustained by the bones, including:
● Pain, swelling, or tenderness immediately felt following the impact
● Pain when the injured area is touched, preventing you from putting your weight on that leg
● Pain that worsens when you try to move
● Trouble bending the knee
● Grating sensation when the injured leg is moved, and the fractured bones grind against each other
● Muscle spasms
● Noticeable change in the shape, or deformity of the leg
By now, you’ve received emergency treatment for your injury, but we understand your recovery has only begun.
Though surgical and rehabilitative treatments for knee fractures vary based on the specific injury, they always put a major burden on affected families. Beyond the obvious cost of treatment, recovery drains the family’s energy and emotional resources as members balance the roles of caregiver, housekeeper, and loved one.
Oatley Vigmond is willing to support you through the worst of your knee fracture recovery. We eliminate financial stress from the start by waving all legal fees until your claim is successful. And unlike other firms that limit their support to legal matters, we support you every step of the way, whether you need insurance assistance, help assembling a care team, or last-minute transportation to an appointment.
