A knee injury can be very painful and can prevent you from carrying out certain activities. Most knee injuries will heal up with rest but some, more serious injuries, may require surgery. There are several ways how you could develop a knee injury.
Slips, trips and falls are very common, particularly in the workplace. If you land awkwardly or heavily, you could twist your knee or give it a very nasty knock.
A road traffic accident could cause you damage to your knee if it gets hit on impact. A hard blow to the knee could result in a broken knee and may require surgery.
Some jobs require the use of a ladder, or you may use one at home for DIY jobs. If that ladder is faulty and a rung breaks, you could twist your knee or land heavily on it, causing tendon or ligament damage.
How you could develop a knee injury and claim compensation
Knee injuries can prevent you from walking or driving, and depending on your job, you may not be able to work until the injury heals. If you can show that your injury was caused by someone else’s actions, than you may be able to claim compensation.
A compensation claim can help you to recover any loss of earnings or out-of-pocket expenses, such as prescriptions for painkillers if they were needed to treat your knee. To make a claim, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer, such as Accident Advice Helpline.
