Injuries to the knee have the potential to be serious – after all, the knee is one of the body’s largest and most complex joints. It is also one of the most commonly injured joints. If you have suffered a serious knee injury such as a quadriceps tendon tear, chances are you may need to undergo a knee injury operation. These operations can be complex and take time to recover from – in the case of a quadriceps tendon tear, it can take up to a year to fully recover and regain full mobility of your knee.
The time taken to recover usually also means taking time off work, which can affect you and your family financially during an already difficult time. The good news is that if somebody else caused your accident, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get compensation after your accident, provided it has been three years or less since it happened.
What happened after your knee injury operation?
It can take varying amounts of time to heal after a knee injury operation, anywhere from a few weeks to several months or even a year, depending on the severity of your injuries. If you have needed to take time off work then you have almost certainly been affected financially after your accident. It may be that you have suffered a quadriceps tendon injury after a fall from height at work, which was caused by your employer’s negligent attitude towards health and safety.
If this has happened to you, your employer could be held liable and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation. You’ll need the services of a reputable personal injury lawyer to ensure you have the best possible chance of getting the compensation you deserve – and that’s where Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
