Knee injuries from a Connecticut auto accident can range in severity and the mechanism of injury can play a role.

Many times, knee injuries cannot be fully detected without treatment from a specialist or orthopedic doctor and in-depth testing, such as Magnetic Resource Imaging (MRI).

Some common knee injuries include:

– Strains and sprains. The most common type, you may feel pain without having suffered some type of ligament or cartilage tear.
