If you are involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, all bets are off when it comes to injuries. You can walk away unscathed or not make it out alive. If you are fortunate enough to survive the crash, you can have minor cuts and bruises, broken bones, or more traumatic and permanent injuries. Some of the more severe injuries one can suffer in a car accident involve one’s knees.
