Have you suffered a knee injury after an accident at work or in a public place – or even after being involved in a road traffic accident? The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body, and also one of the most commonly injured. Unfortunately, knee injuries can take some time to heal and you may need to take time off work to rehabilitate from your injuries and get better. This can affect you and your family financially, and there may be other costs to bear too, such as the cost of rehabilitation and medical treatment including physiotherapy.
Making a personal injury claim can help with the cost of knee injury rehab, and you can contact Accident Advice Helpline after your accident to find out more.
What is the cost of knee injury rehab?
It’s really impossible for us to put a figure on the cost of knee injury rehab. The amount you may need to pay will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your injury and whether or not you need to take time off work. Taking a few months off to recover is going to end up costing you more than taking a week off work and resting your knee. In some cases, surgery and physiotherapy may be needed in order to fully recover from a knee injury, and the most severe injuries could even leave you with a limp or affect your mobility.
Even a minor knee injury could lead to taking some time off work, and you could be compensated for loss of earnings, as well as your pain and suffering, if you make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your accident.
Who is to blame for your accident?
It is not always immediately obvious who’s at fault for an accident, and for this reason many people hesitate and miss out on the opportunity to claim personal injury compensation. There’s no need to wait around if you think you may be eligible to make a claim. You can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline by calling our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to find out more and get advice from our expert advisors. Because we have been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, you know you can trust us to get you the compensation you are entitled to.
