Maiming legs...

This is set nowish.
Our Heroine was in a car accident as a small child that badly damaged one leg, and now (a decade and change later) requires a cane (unless she wants to, you know, hop everywhere). 1. What kind of injury might have caused that (ie what kind of damage), and 2. What would the leg look like/be unable to do?
I have no idea how to google this. I don't need exact answers or anything, just some idea of *what* could have been damaged such that it 1. would not be repairable, medically, and 2. would not heal eventually, but that would *not* require a wheelchair or walker (at least not that much later)...
Edit: Thanks, I think I've got it.
