What is a Joint Dislocation?

Joint dislocation happens when bones in a joint are forced apart and out of their usual alignment. Smaller joints like fingers and toes can become dislocated fairly easily, while bigger joints like knees, shoulders, and hips require significant force to become dislocated. These types of accidents happen very often in car accidents.

Mobile Joints vs. Stable Joints

Mobile joints like the shoulder and hip are of the ball and socket design, allowing legs and arms to move in many directions. Stable joints like knees and elbows are designed to move in only one direction. Mobile joints are far more vulnerable to dislocation than stable joints.

Common Dislocation Injuries Resulting from an Auto Accident

Motor vehicle accidents and collisions are a common cause of both major and minor joint dislocations. The most common dislocation injuries caused be vehicle accidents are the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow, and wrist joints.

Symptoms of Joint Dislocation

Symptoms of joint dislocation can be noticed immediately or may take time to develop. Immediate symptoms include sudden, intense pain in a joint, and visually noticeable deformity of a joint. Slower developing symptoms can include joint instability, reduced muscle strength, numbness and stiffness of joint, bruising or swelling in the joint area, and difficulty moving a joint.

Joint Dislocation Injury Damages

Depending on the joint dislocated and the severity of the injury, treatment and recovery from a dislocation injury can vary greatly. Joints like hip and shoulder often require surgery and substantial rehabilitation and recovery periods. Anyone suffering a joint dislocation injury may pursue compensation for any of the following damages:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical bills for follow-up surgeries, etc.
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Household and vehicle modifications (wheelchair ramps, etc.)
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Permanent injury or disability
