Quadriceps Tendon Tear

The quadriceps tendon works with the muscles at the front the thigh to straighten the leg. Quadriceps tendon tears are not common and most frequently occur when there is heavy weight on the leg with the foot planted and the knee partially bent (IE. when landing from a jump). Common symptoms include a popping sensation in the knee, pain and swelling in the knee, and an inability to straighten the knee.

Potential Settlement Value

In 2006, the Court in Wotta v Darby’s Family Dining Ltd, 2006 SKQB 507 awarded the injured person $95,000 for injuries that included a quadriceps tendon tear.
