Ruptured Tendon after A Car Collision Lawyers in Chicago, IL

Understand the short-term and long-term implications of your injury, BEFORE signing a car accident settlement.

Ruptured Tendon From a Vehicle Collision

Soft tissue injuries are often sustained in car accidents. The most common soft tissue injuries include sprains, strains, and contusions. Serious injury can lead to a ruptured tendon.

Rotator Cuff Rupture

The rotator cuff is located in the shoulder and allows rotation of the arm. When the rotator cuff is damaged, the joint loses strength, leading to a higher risk of arthritis. The most common symptom of rotator cuff rupture is pain when extending the arm above the head or lying down. Treatment includes steroid injections, surgery, and physical therapy.

Achilles Tendon Rupture

The Achilles tendon lies just above the heel of the foot and connects the muscles in the back of the calf to the calcaneus or heel bone. An Achilles rupture causes a popping or snapping sensation and the patient may find it difficult to walk. Treatment involves wearing a cast or a walking boot to aid recovery. Surgery may be required to repair the tendon and it may take months for the patient to recover completely.

Patellar Tendon Rupture

The patellar tendon is located in the kneecap and can rupture from the impact of a car crash. When the tendon ruptures, it can completely detach from the kneecap and the patient is unable to straighten the knee. Treatment may involve non-surgical procedures that include anti-inflammatory medication, immobilization with a knee brace, icing, rest, and physical therapy. Complete recovery usually takes months.
