The Sacketts

The Sacketts (1979)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: Generally speaking, a crutch is designed to function as a replacement for an injured lower limb, thus being used on the impaired side. However, when Cap takes a rifle bullet through the left kneecap (which, incidentally, would have resulted the the total destruction of the knee), he subsequently hobbles around quite spryly, supporting his undamaged right leg with the crutch.

Correction: As you said yourself - "Generally speaking". This in itself implies that it does not mean all of the time. I have seen many people use a crutch and a cane on the non injured side and lean to that side.
