Knees may twist at an irregular angle in a fall, resulting in a dislocation of the patella or torn ligaments that require knee reconstruction surgery.
Some people are at a greater risk of getting hurt in a fall due to preexisting injuries. A fall that aggravates a prior knee injury could require longer rehabilitation times and increased medical costs—and insurers are more likely to fight against these claims due to the victim’s preexisting condition.
