    How to claim knee ligament injury compensation


    Ouch! You’ve torn a ligament in your knee and are finding it hard to walk? You’re not alone. Tearing a knee ligament can be incredibly painful, and because bloody supply is cut off when a ligament is torn, your injury could be permanent and surgery may be required. If you’ve injured your knee in an accident at work or in a public place, why not consider finding out if you can claim knee ligament injury compensation? You’ll want to choose a reputable personal injury lawyer to handle your claim and Accident Advice Helpline has years of industry experience.

    How has your knee been injured?

    Perhaps you’ve torn a ligament in your knee when you slipped on a wet floor in the school canteen, after somebody spilt food or drink and failed to clean it up? Or maybe you have been injured when you slipped on a recently mopped floor in your local shopping centre. It could be that your knee injury is the result of a trip on a damaged pavement – in which case your local council could be held liable, as it’s their duty to ensure that roads and pavements in your area are well-maintained and safe to use.

    Ligaments are made up of collagen fibres which connect our bones together, and although they’re strong, they can tear when subjected to sudden force. This could mean taking months off work to recover, undergoing surgery or even requiring physiotherapy to regain your mobility. In some cases, knee ligament pain can persist for years, flaring up suddenly and seriously affecting your ability to enjoy life or even go to work.

    Financial troubles

    If you’re unable to go back to work after tearing a ligament, knee ligament injury compensation could be the answer you’re looking for. Being off work sick can affect your finances and you might find yourself struggling to pay mounting household bills. Claiming personal injury compensation could provide you with the money you need to pay your bills whilst you focus on recovering from your injury. It could even help with costs such as medical expenses or treatment.

    Our professional personal injury lawyers will consider a range of factors when working out your settlement, including the extent of your injuries, pain and suffering and any financial losses you have incurred. Why not call Accident Advice Helpline for advice on 0800 689 0500 today and speak to one of our expert advisors in confidence?
