The ACL is a ligament found in the inner knee responsible for proper movement. These injuries cause knee instability that can damage your other ligaments. Injuries can range from mild tears to complete tears of the ligament. The MCL is a large band of tissue that is found inside of the knee. It keeps the lower leg and the thighbone connected. It helps the knee bend. These injuries are often not as severe as ACL injuries.
ACL and MCL injuries often result from quick bending, changing of directions or twisting. Treatment often requires physical therapy, a knee brace and possibly even surgery, depending on the severity of the injury. If you are going to be off work for an extended period of time to recover, you deserve to be compensated fairly.
