    Are you suffering from knee injury symptoms?


    If you were involved in an accident which required medical attention we would like to hear from you to discuss your right to compensation and to tell you about our excellent services which could be available to you. Knee injury symptoms such as pain, swelling or trouble walking or putting weight on the leg may leave you feeling frustrated or upset, especially if the accident which caused your injuries was not your fault.

    Who is to blame for your accident?

    At Accident Advice Helpline we have helped thousands of accident victims with support after they became unfairly injured. If you are not sure who is to blame, we can help to establish these details when you call us. With more information about the accident and where it took place we can help you to understand where the responsibility lies.

    Types of knee injury

    Ligaments

    Your doctor may grade your ligament injury to show the extent of the damage. Grade 1 means that the ligaments in your knee have been stretched. Grade 2 means that your knee has suffered a partial tear of the ligament. Grade 3 is a complete tear through the ligament.

    Tendons

    If you tear your tendons you may notice that your kneecap (patella) is lying higher or lower than it should be and does not seem to be in the correct place. You may not be able to straighten your knee and this will likely be accompanied by pain and swelling.

    Cartilage

    One of the most common types of knee injury occurs after tearing the cartilage called meniscus which acts as a shock absorber, taking on the impact of walking, running and jumping.

    I have knee injury symptoms, what should I do?

    If you are suffering from any kind of knee injury symptoms you should see a doctor immediately to assess the damage. If you don’t believe the accident was your fault you should also speak to an expert accident advisor to see if you have the right to claim compensation. You have up to three years from the date of the accident to make a claim.
