Since most drivers are propelled forward during a car accident, knee injuries are among the most common types of injuries in a car accident.

At the Law Offices of Robert Dixon, our diligent and hard-working Miami car accident attorneys have the skill, dedication, and experience to handle your case.
Our knees are vital for mobility and comfort during day-to-day activities. As a result, even the most minor strain or tear can have a significant impact on our quality of life. Knee injuries can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. There are a number of ways to injure your knee in a car accident, such as sprains, strains, tears, and broken bones. Symptoms of knee injuries can vary, depending on the type of injury that it is. Some common symptoms include swelling, tenderness, weakness, pain, inability to extend the knee, and grinding or locking when walking.
If your knee injury was caused by someone else’s carelessness, you may be able to recover compensation from that party through a negligence claim. A negligence claim is a civil lawsuit intended to establish liability. Negligence occurs when an injury or death results from a party’s failure to use the level of care and caution that a reasonable person in the same or similar circumstances would have used.
