    Have you had a knee injury test?

    Perhaps disappointingly, there are numerous ways a person can injure their knee. You may have a simple trip or slip and fall awkwardly on it, for example. You might receive a blow to your knee in a fall or in an accident. This may occur in a car accident or other incident where you are subjected to an impact. In any of these situations, medical attention should include a knee injury test to see what you have done and what your symptoms are.

    By assessing the amount you can move your knee, identifying any external bruising or damage and hearing about your symptoms, the medical professional will be able to determine what injuries you have sustained. Furthermore, any treatment can then be decided upon to help you towards recovery.

    How long might it take to recover from a knee injury?

    This would depend on how serious your knee injury is. Bruising and swelling is likely to dissipate within a short time, but it depends how bad it was to begin with. This may cause discomfort initially, even if you can still walk unaided. A more serious injury, such as a fracture kneecap, for example, will obviously take longer to heal and possibly require several weeks in a cast.

    As you can imagine, this may mean you end up with several weeks off work, or at least a significant upheaval in your daily life. If you sustained your injury in an accident that was caused by someone else, you can see why it might be possible to seek some compensation for what occurred.
