Were you involved in a work day out which resulted in a knee injury? Were you not to blame for you accident? Have you been struggling to get the best advice and care for knee injuries on the NHS? Receiving compensation for your accident which was caused by someone else may help you to get you quick treatment and a better recovery by paying for additional private care.
Is my employer responsible for my injuries?
If you were injured on a work day out which left you needing medical attention you may be left feeling angry. You may feel your employer is to blame for hiring somewhere unsafe or for organising dangerous games or creating a situation which got out of control.
It could be that your employer is not to blame and the responsibility lies with the company who provided the work event. If the people responsible for coordinating the event were not taking correct safety measures or following health and safety law it may be that they are in fact the negligent party.
If you are unsure who is to blame for the accident which resulted in your knee injury but you don’t think you are responsible then contact Accident Advice Helpline so that we can help establish who is at fault and whether you are entitled to make a claim.
Knee injuries on the NHS vs private health care
Many of us rely on the NHS to provide us with free healthcare and if you suffer a knee injury which requires physiotherapy sessions or surgery then you should still be eligible to receive this on the NHS. However, you may opt to get your healthcare privately so that your injury can be treated more quickly and efficiently. If you need surgery you are not likely to wait as long when going private.
Whether you are thinking about getting treated privately or you have already received private treatment you could pay for the costs or get reimbursed with compensation from a successful claim. To hear more about the services we offer, including our no-win, no-fee service, call our team of accident advisors.
