    Claiming for a football knee injury


    If you have suffered a football knee injury, or if your child has been injured whilst playing football, did you ever stop to think that you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim? Knee injuries can result in damage to the ligaments and cartilage inside the knee, which can take time to heal – in some cases surgery and/or physiotherapy may be needed.

    If you have suffered this type of injury after playing football – for example if you were taking part in an organised training session or match – then you may be able to claim compensation if it can be proven that somebody else is responsible for your injuries.

    What type of football knee injury have you sustained?

    If you have been injured whilst playing football then you may have suffered torn cartilage, a ligament injury or both. A football knee injury can result in a minor pull which can take a few weeks to heal, or a major tear, which could mean you’re unable to play sports for a year or more.

    Cruciate ligament injuries usually require surgery and take longer to heal than injuries to the medial ligament. If you injure your medial ligament, which is linked to cartilage, you’ll normally need to undergo physiotherapy to regain full use of your knee and recover from your injuries. If somebody else caused your accident – for example if your child was injured due to a negligent football coach, or if you were injured by another player – then you could make a personal injury claim within three years of your accident. You can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out more at any time.
