Ligament injuries are amongst the most serious types of knee injuries as they can take months or even longer to heal. In severe cases where a ligament has been torn then surgery may be needed which can mean a period of time off work and rehabilitation. If you have suffered a left knee ligament injury after an accident which was caused by somebody else, then you may find you are eligible to claim personal injury compensation for your pain, suffering and any loss of earnings you may have experienced. You can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline within three years of your accident to find out if you could make a personal injury claim.
What’s the prognosis for a left knee ligament injury?
A left knee ligament injury can take some time to heal, which may mean taking time off work and being unable to participate in your regular sports or other activities. Common knee ligament injuries can take six to eight weeks to heal, but this may take longer if your injury is more severe or surgery is required. During this time you may have to keep weight off your knee and you could be affected by loss of earnings if you are unable to go to work.
Ligament injuries are common after a slip or trip, and if you have been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence then you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline. Our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, which means you can make a claim even if you are struggling financially after your accident due to time off work.
