We believe it is important for workers' compensation claimants to have an understanding of the anatomy of the knee in order to properly deal with issues associated with their knee injury treatment and NJ compensation case.
The knee joint is formed where the femur (thigh bone) and the patella (shin bone) meet in the leg. The surface of each bone is coated with a form of cartilage termed condyle where they meet at the knee joint. The cushion material which is located between the condyle surface of the femur and patella is the meniscus; this is also a form of cartilage in the knee. The ACL, PCL, MCL and LCL ligament hold the joint together. When a worker sustains trauma to his knee, condyle or meniscus cartilage can be damaged or a ligament can get torn. These injuries almost always require surgical repair of the knee. If you sustained a torn meniscus, cartilage, or ligament as a result of a workplace accident, please do not hesitate to contact a compensation lawyer at our New Jersey firm.
