Travel Insurance Claims - True Stories Just some of the weird and wonderful things that happen to World Nomads travellers while on the road

Ligament Injuries

CANADA | Friday, 9 May 2008 | Views [1431]

It’s cliché but true: accidents happen all the time but you never count on one happening to you. I was skiing in Canada when I took a fall and injured my left knee. I was taken from the slopes to a local Emergency Centre, in great pain, where they took X-rays and examined me. The doctors told me I had torn my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and, more than likely, also had some ligament damage in my other knee.

How World Nomads helped...

Emergency medical care, including X-rays and diagnostic tests, followed by knee surgery to fix ACL rupture and a large tear of lateral meniscus.
