Hargitay, 57, shared her picture from outside the hospital, where she was able to walk on her own while wearing a knee brace and ankle support.
She wrote: "#ThatFeelingWhen, you go to the doctor, get an MRI and find out that you have a broken knee, a hairline fracture in your ankle and a torn ligament."
In the post, Hargitay added, "It's always a good idea to go to the doctor. Immediately." But the "great news is," she wrote, "I don't need surgery."
At the time of this writing, Hargitay hasn't yet revealed how she was injured. But she did add several hashtags on her Instagram post, including "#BustingPerpsWithBustedKnees," which makes you wonder if the accident occurred on a Law & Order set.

Hargitay and Law & Order: SVU are nearing the conclusion to season 22 on NBC, with two episodes remaining before the June 3 finale.
The season was a celebratory one for fans — and for Hargitay — as the franchise welcomed back former detective "Elliot Stabler" (Christopher Meloni), the ex-partner of Hargitay's now-captain "Olivia Benson."
The duo also reminisced about old times and talked Meloni's return in an interview shortly before "Stabler" made his initial comeback on SVU. You can read what they had to say here.
We wish Mariska a speedy recovery in the meantime!
