Symptoms of knee injuries following a car accident
Being in a car accident can be a terrifying experience which leaves you shaken. You may have hurt your knee as a result and be suffering from the following:
- Tingling, numbness or acute pain in the knee or in the leg
- The limb looks different, misshapen or out of place
- Skin is pale, white, blue or is colder than the rest of the body
- Not being able to move the joint because of weakness or pain
- Severe pain
- Unable to put full weight on the leg or straighten the leg
- Exposed bone
If you have numbness in the lower leg it is likely that you have damaged the blood or nerve endings in your accident. You should seek medical advice if you are suffering from any of these symptoms. A doctor will be able to examine you and diagnose what the problem is and what treatment is necessary.
