Have you sustained a left knee injury recently? There are all kinds of ways you can do this, and all kinds of injuries that can occur. For example, while cuts and bruises are at the lower end of the spectrum of injuries, a dislocated kneecap or fractured kneecap are at the more severe end of things.
Some injuries will only require some basic home treatment. However, if your injury occurred in an accident you think someone else caused, it is best to at least see your GP. Not only will a medical professional confirm the extent of your injury and provide advice on treatment, they will also create a record of your visit and the injury you presented with.
Why is this important when suffering from a left knee injury?
Firstly, unless your injury really is minor, you don’t know for sure how bad it is. You could have a hairline fracture of your kneecap and still walk on that leg and put weight on it, albeit suffering from some pain in the process.
Furthermore, if there is any chance you might claim compensation within three years of the accident occurring, having medical records will support that claim. They will provide evidence that the injury did occur and that you saw someone about it.
Can Accident Advice Helpline assist with a claim?
With over 16 years of experience, we are well placed to provide expert advice when you need it most. If you have sustained a left knee injury and you want to know if you could receive compensation, you need only call us on 0800 689 0500 to find out more. You can also get answers by calling 0333 500 0993 on your mobile.
The keyword to remember in cases like these is negligence. Was someone else negligent, and did that lead to the knee injury happening to you? If you fell, should that fall have been preventable and impossible to experience? If you slipped on ice in the car park of a store or even at work, should there have been warning signs? Should the ice have been gritted so it dissipated and did not cause a hazard? We can provide you with some of the answers you have been looking for, and that could mean one of our solicitors can support you in making a claim to seek some compensation.
