We know how debilitating they can be, complicating your employment, personal life, and other activities. Our firm provides free, no obligation, and strictly confidential initial consultations.


Knee injuries are among the most common serious injuries. According to data cited in a study published by the National Institute of Health (NIH), approximately 6.6 people seek emergency medical care for a knee injury nationwide each year. Ladah Law Firm is a boutique personal injury firm with a commitment to fighting for justice for injured victims. Along with other types of knee injuries, our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers have the experience to take on: 

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries: The ACL is one of the key ligaments that helps stabilize the knee joint. ACL injuries are severe injuries that require immediate medical attention. They can happen due to sudden stops, change in direction, or direct impacts. The recovery process may involve physical therapy and surgical care. 
  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injuries: PCL injuries typically occur when the knee experiences a direct blow to the front while bent—such as might happen during a car accident or a fall accident. Symptoms of a PCL injury include knee pain, swelling, and a feeling that the knee might give out during movement. Treatment can vary. 
  • Meniscal Tears: Meniscal tears involve damage to the meniscus, which is cartilage in the knee that cushions and stabilizes the joint between the thigh and shin bones. These tears often result from twisting or rotating the knee while bearing weight and can lead to pain, swelling, and limited motion of the knee joint.
  • Patellar Injuries: Patellar injuries can involve fractures, dislocation, or tendon tears and are often caused by direct impacts to the knee or sudden, intense movements. Some of the most common symptoms include pain in the front of the knee, severe swelling, and difficulty in straightening the knee or walking. Immediate medical care is a must. 
  • Knee Dislocation: One of the most severe injuries, a knee dislocation occurs when the bones of the knee are out of place—either partially or completely. Dislocation can damage surrounding ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves. The injury is a medical emergency due to the potential for vascular and nerve damage. Immediate care is essential.

Determining Liability

When your injury is the result of another person’s negligence, particularly in a car accident, his or her insurance is responsible to compensate you for your injuries and losses. Personal injury liability is generally based on negligence—which, in Nevada, is broadly defined as the failure to take due care. What constitutes negligence is always highly case-specific. It could be anything from a driver running a red light to a property owner failing to address an obvious slip and fall accident.

Of course, invariably the insurance attorneys will disagree with this assessment. They will do their best to show you at fault for the accident. We have the necessary experience to show liability where it belongs to protect your rights and your claim for compensation for your injury. The insurance company would most likely attempt to minimize your injuries and attempt to have you settle for compensation that you will later discover is wholly inadequate.

We won’t let you be fooled by their overtures. We know what your injury will cost today and into the future. We know what your pain and suffering is worth and we make sure your lost income is included in your compensation.

As Nevada has a comparative negligence law (NRS 41.141), a person who suffers a knee injury can still pursue compensation through a personal injury claim as long as they are not liable for the majority (51 percent or more) of their own accident. Your recovery will be reduced by your degree of fault. For example, if you are found to be 20 percent at fault for a crash that caused a torn ACL, you would be liable for 20 percent of your own damages associated with that knee injury. 


In Nevada, injured victims have the right to pursue financial compensation for economic damages and non-economic losses. Unfortunately, the insurance companies that defend most of these claims fight hard to pay out as little as possible—especially for rehabilitative care and intangible damages. Our Las Vegas knee injury attorneys go the extra mile to help our clients recovery compensation for: 

  • Emergency room care; 
  • Hospital bills; 
  • Other health care costs; 
  • Rehabilitative knee care; 
  • Loss of wages; 
  • Loss of earning power; 
  • Pain and suffering; 
  • Emotional anguish; and
  • Long-term physical impairment.
