Tibial Plateau Fracture
San Jose Broken Knee Joint Lawyers
A tibial plateau fracture is one that occurs at the top of the shin bone. This type of fracture involves the cartilage surface of the knee joint and must be treated differently than fractures to the tibia shaft. Joints that are subject to tibial plateau fractures are also at high risk of developing arthritis later on in life. Individuals who have suffered these types of fractures in auto and other serious accidents deserve to be compensated for their losses.

Our attorneys can protect your rights while pursuing the compensation that you deserve for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering related to your injuries.
