Injuries to the knees, shoulders, hips and other joints of the body are common from car accidents and usually involve dislocation of bones, broken bones, torn or strained ligaments or tendons, and damage to valuable cartilage.
Treatment and recovery times can be extensive, as can the costs. Treatment can involve rest, medications, physical therapy, pain management and sometimes surgery. These injuries can have lasting symptoms if not treated properly or within sufficient time after the accident.
