Understanding the Importance of Ligaments and Tendons
Your torn ligaments and tendons can cause you great pain and restrict movement. While there is often no outward appearance of these types of injuries, you may feel the effect of your accident when you reach for items or attempt to walk.
According to HealthLine, both ligaments and tendons serve as connective tissue. Their duties as connective tissue vary, however, and understanding the importance of both may be important for your personal injury case.
Ligaments are bands that crisscross, attaching bone to bone and helping to stabilize joints. For example, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the knee joint contains four major ligaments:
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
- Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)
- Medial collateral ligament (MCL)
- Lateral collateral ligament (LCL)
Tendons are found at each end of a muscle, attaching the muscle to bone. There are tendons throughout the human body, from the head and neck area to the feet.
If your accident injuries include torn ligaments and tendons, the person responsible for your harm should pay your medical expenses and not you.
In addition to initial treatment, your injuries may require future surgeries for the removal of inflamed or damaged tissue. Infection is another possible danger from your torn ligaments and tendons.
If you experienced a slip and fall that resulted in such painful injuries, seek justice. A Boca Raton torn ligaments and tendons lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine may be able to work with you to build the best case possible against those liable for your harm.

Types of Evidence Helpful for Your Case
Some of the types of evidence that may possibly help your case include the following:
- Accident scene photos and/or video: smartphone captures of where you fell and the circumstances that caused your accident
- Witness contact information: names and telephone numbers for witnesses at the scene.
- Police report or store incident report
- Medical reports for the injuries related to the accident
It is important that you submit these and any other types of evidence you may possess to us as soon as possible. A member of our team may begin reviewing the information now in order to prepare your case for insurance negotiations and for a possible trial.
The Typical Process of a Personal Injury Claim and Lawsuit
Legal action for damages typically begins with negotiations with an insurance company. At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we may negotiate on your behalf for a fair settlement.
Most personal injury cases settle out of court. If your case must proceed to trial in order to secure the compensation you need, we are ready to go to court.
You can protect your best interests by not speaking with insurance companies. It is possible that your pain and the temptation to settle things quickly, combined with their high-pressure tactics, may result in you accepting less than you deserve.
Accepting a settlement offer may prevent you from pursuing compensation later, should your medical condition worsen. This can result in a need for medical care you are unable to afford.

Understanding the Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations is a state law that establishes a deadline for filing civil action with the court. Florida Statue § 95.11(3) generally allows four years for a personal injury case.
We understand that there may have been many changes to your life following your accident. Do not let these changes distract you from making a call to secure legal representation.
It is imperative that you not delay reaching out to our office for a free case evaluation. Personal injury law is quite complex, and we need as much time as possible to review the details of your accident.
