As a Georgian resident who has suffered an injury to the knee, you will quickly learn just how much of an impact it could potentially have on your entire quality of life. We at McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham, LLP, are dedicated to illustrating the lesser-known problems associated with moderate to severe knee injuries. 

When discussing serious and crippling injuries, many people will first think about spinal damage or head damage. However, knee injuries can also be quite impactful. They are sometimes overlooked, but they can cause enough damage to hamper your ability to live independently in some cases.

First of all, your medical bills can be high. Treatment of knee injuries often requires extensive physical therapy. In some cases, it may even require surgery to fix. Between these high costs and the possibility of needing to take medications or prescription painkillers, you could end up spending a lot.

On the other hand, you may make less money because you may be unable to work. Your knees control everything from your ability to walk and run to your overall balance. Having pain so intense that you cannot use your knees properly may make it difficult or even impossible for you to do your job.
