Did you know that knee injuries are amongst the most common injuries around? That could be because the knee is also one of the largest and most complex joints in the body, so it’s at risk of serious injury. If you’ve suffered a knee injury after an accident and you’re considering making a personal injury claim, then you may need some advice. Our knee injury guide will answer some of the questions you may have – and if you need further advice and to find out whether or not you have a viable claim, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline for confidential, no-obligation advice from our team of expert advisors.
Our knee injury guide answers your questions
We’ve gathered together answers to some of the most common questions we are asked in our brief knee injury guide. If you’re wondering whether you can claim compensation for a minor knee injury such as bursitis, the answer is yes, if somebody else is to blame for your accident. You can claim for almost any type of knee injury provided you required medical treatment and your accident was caused by somebody else – and if you’re in doubt, you can always call us for advice. We are often asked how much compensation the average knee injury claim can attract, and the answer is, there is no one answer.
Every claim is handled individually, which means every single compensation amount is different, depending on the severity of your injuries, how much time you have taken off work to recover and a range of other factors. However you can use the 30-second test on our website to get an idea of how much compensation you could claim.
What should your first steps be after your accident?
Obviously your first priority after suffering a knee injury should be to have your injuries evaluated by a medical professional and get the treatment you need. Once this has happened then you might want to think about making a personal injury claim. You can call Accident Advice Helpline at any time after your accident but remember there is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim.
