    Has your knee injury caused numbness?

    While we are all familiar with a range of knee injuries, you may not have heard of a situation where a knee injury caused numbness before. Any injury can cause swelling to the knee. Since this part of the body has nerves in it, just as many other areas do, it is possible for the swelling to affect these nerves. This can lead to that pins and needles feeling we’re all familiar with.

    If you suffer an injury to your knee that causes you to feel numbness at or below the point of the injury, you should seek medical advice. You may wish to do so anyway, because the injury could be serious and painful, and it may require expert treatment. You would also want to make sure the numbness is temporary and caused by the swelling, rather than pointing to anything more serious that could be wrong.

    If a knee injury caused numbness and someone else caused it, what should you do?

    No one ever expects to cause an accident, but sometimes an individual could lose concentration or attention for a split-second, and that could be enough to cause an incident to occur. Think of most of the road accidents that happen and you will see this is true.

    Another example could be that your injury happened at work. If this is true, you should consider whether it could or should have been avoidable. This isn’t always easy to work out, which is one reason why seeking advice from a professional solicitor who deals in compensation claims relating to personal injuries is a good idea.
