    Claiming for a knee injury from gymnastics


    Because the knee is one of the body’s largest, most complex joints, it can be more prone to injury than other joints. Gymnastics, like all sports, carries with it the risk of injury, but for the most part accidents can be avoided if proper care is taken. If you or your child have suffered a knee injury from gymnastics after an accident that you believe was somebody else’s fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim personal injury compensation.

    It may be that faulty equipment at a gymnasium led to a fall that caused a quadriceps tendon tear, or perhaps lack of safety equipment caused an awkward landing and cartilage damage to your knee. Whatever has happened, there is a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim.

    How serious is your knee injury from gymnastics?

    A knee injury from gymnastics could be minor or more serious, and severe knee injuries can take a considerable amount of time to heal. Not only will you be unable to take part in gymnastic practice or events, you will probably also be unable to go to work or participate in your usual leisure activities. A knee injury has the potential to lead to osteoarthritis in some cases, and even injuries such as ligament tears can take up to six weeks to heal. If you have suffered a quadriceps tendon tear, this can take up to a year to fully heal and you may need surgery and physiotherapy to regain full use of your knee.

    At the end of the day, if somebody else is to blame for your accident, then you could make a claim for compensation not only for your pain and suffering but also for any financial losses you have experienced, such as loss of earnings from time off work.
