It is not all that uncommon for children to suffer a knee injury. The child may have been injured while jumping, running, playing sports or after a fall. Children may suffer a dislocation, fracture or sprain and in most cases will need to see a doctor about their injuries. If you want to find out more about compensation for a knee injury to a child, contact Accident Advice Helpline. Our services are second to none and we can offer you all the support you need.
How does the knee work?
The knee is the largest joint in the body. It is protected by the knee cap, also known as the patella, which acts as a shield to the knee joint. The menisci discs separate the two leg bones at the joint and are made up of cartilage. The knee is also made up of muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Why should I claim for a knee injury to a child?
If your child was injured at school, in a playground or under someone else’s care and it was not your child’s fault, it may mean that a negligent party has inadvertently caused your child to become hurt. Making a claim can alert the company or person responsible to the fact that health and safety was overlooked and it may mean that other accidents could follow unless action is taken.
Compensation may help for time taken off work to look after your child and it could also help with any other expenses such as cancelled holidays or events. If you want to make a claim for a knee injury to a child call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from a mobile).
