Iowa Knee Injury Lawyer

Compensation for Injuries to Knees, Shoulders and Joints

Knee injuries and shoulder injuries may not get the attention of more gruesome injuries, but they can be very disabling just the same. Unlike a broken bone that heals, the tissues in knees and shoulders may never recover from an accident. The joint often gets worse rather than better, and even surgical repair may not improve function.

If you suffered a serious knee or shoulder injury in an accident, the Des Moines law firm of Galligan Reid PC can help. Our legal team is committed to holding the negligent party and the insurers accountable for the medical, financial and personal aftermath in your life.

We have handled many knee injuries and shoulder injury claims across Iowa resulting from auto collisions, work accidents and slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents. For prompt investigation in pursuit of your full compensation, contact us today for a free consultation.

Knees are built to take a lot of wear and tear, but they are not built to withstand the blunt trauma of a car or motorcycle crash, or the twisting and pressure of a falling accident. Shoulder joints are a marvel of nature but also susceptible to serious damage when forced into unnatural positions.

Galligan Reid PC has secured compensation for all types of shoulder and knee trauma:

  • Torn ACL or MCL
  • Broken or dislocated kneecap
  • Torn cartilage
  • Hyperextension injuries
  • Dislocated shoulder or separated shoulder
  • Torn labrum or torn rotator cuff
  • Broken shoulder blade or collarbone

Experienced Lawyers Who Illustrate the Impact of Your Injuries

We help ensure that clients receive a proper diagnosis and treatment by doctors who specialize in injuries to joints. We then follow through to ensure that clients are covered for whatever remedy offers the best chance of recovery, including arthroscopic surgery, knee replacement surgery or less invasive physical therapy regimens.

If surgery is required or the doctor orders rest, we make sure clients are covered for lost wages. If the joint is never quite the same, we make sure clients are compensated for weakness, nerve damage or lost range of motion. If the injury results in permanent disability, we calculate projected earnings and press for damages for lost quality of life.
