    How to claim torn ligament compensation


    Tearing a ligament can be excruciatingly painful and debilitating. Ligaments exist in your feet, ankles and knees and are made up of connective collagen fibres which connect bones – not to be confused with tendons which connect muscle. Whilst our ligaments are tough, they can tear under sudden force, causing irreparable injury. Claiming torn ligament compensation might be possible if you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault – for example if you have slipped on a wet floor where no warning signs were displayed. Accident Advice Helpline will support you at every stage of the claims process and we’re proud to come highly recommended by our patron, Dame Esther Rantzen, who you may know from TV.

    A serious injury

    When you tell somebody you’ve torn a ligament, they often view this as a minor injury, compared to, say, a fracture. Whilst it’s true that ligament injuries are generally less serious than fractures, they actually have the potential to be life-changing. When a ligament is torn, the lack of blood supply could lead to a permanent injury which never heals or requires surgery to repair it. This can affect your mobility and may require a change in lifestyle, particularly if you have an active job or enjoy sports in your free time.

    We take all these things into account when working out how much torn ligament compensation you’ll receive – not only is your pain and suffering a factor, but your injury’s impact on your life as well as any expenses you have incurred relating to your injury (such as prescription medication costs) will be considered. For an idea of how much you could be entitled to claim, head for our website and take the 30-second test today.

    Who’s to blame?

    Think about how your injury happened and you should be able to ascertain who’s to blame. Here are a few examples of the types of accidents which we have handled torn ligament personal injury claims for:

    • Slipping on a wet floor
    • Tripping on damaged flooring or stairs
    • Falling from height or down stairs
    • Trip over hazards such as boxes of stock or rubbish

    In scenarios like these, your employer could be to blame if you’re injured at work. If you slip on a wet floor in a shopping centre, the management could be held liable for your accident and ordered to pay you compensation.
