    Claiming for a knee injury from netball

    Netball is hardly the most dangerous sport out there, but like most other sports it carries with it the risk of injury. There is a difference between an accident that is nobody’s fault and one which is caused by negligence however. For example if you trip on damaged tarmac on a netball court, you could find you’re eligible to claim compensation from the owners of the court for your injury.

    Suffering a knee injury from netball is fairly common, and it’s likely that you will need to take some time off work to recover if this has happened to you. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings if you have suffered a knee injury from netball and it has been less than three years since your accident.

    What kind of knee injury from netball have you suffered?

    If you’ve injured your knee whilst playing netball, it’s likely that you have sustained a ligament tear, or possibly cartilage damage. A dislocated or fractured patella is also possible if you fall and land awkwardly on your knee. Tripping on damaged ground on a netball court or slipping on something which has been spilt could easily cause a fall that can lead to a knee injury. Ligament injuries can take anywhere from six to eight weeks to heal, and more serious injuries may require physiotherapy and/or surgery.

    This might mean you need to take a few weeks off work for treatment or to recover from your injuries, particularly if you work in a physical job. It may be that your child has been injured whilst playing netball in their free time or at school, and if this is the case you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation on their behalf.

    Will my knee injury claim be successful?

    Many people ask us if their claim will be successful before they have made it. It’s hard for us to say with 100% certainty whether any claim will be successful, but we have over 16 years’ industry experience and we provide a 100% no-win, no-fee* service, giving your claim the best possible chances of success. Provided it has been less than three years since your accident and somebody else was liable, you could receive compensation for your pain, suffering and any financial losses you’ve sustained after your accident.
