    Have you undergone a knee injury examination?


    After an accident one of the most important things to do is to get the medical treatment you need. A prompt examination and diagnosis of your injuries means that you will be prescribed the best course of treatment and be on the road to recovery sooner. If you have suffered a knee injury after a slip or trip, an accident at work or a road traffic accident, then seeing a medical professional for a knee injury examination is vital.

    Knee injuries may present with symptoms such as swelling and inflammation, or they may be painful but show no visible symptoms, which is why an assessment of your injuries is so important. The report written by your doctor could form part of the evidence needed later if you decide to make a personal injury claim within three years of your accident.

    What injuries can be diagnosed by a knee injury examination?

    A knee injury examination can diagnose any type of knee injury. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people claim compensation for over 16 years and during that time there are some knee injuries we have handled claims for more frequently than others. Here are a few of the most common knee injuries we have processed compensation claims for since 2000:

    • Prepatellar bursitis
    • Dislocated patella
    • Patella fracture
    • Ligament injuries including anterior and posterior cruciate ligament injuries

    These types of injuries may require physiotherapy and/or surgery in order for the individual to make a full recovery, and you may need to take some time off work to recover from your knee injury. Accident Advice Helpline could help you get compensation not only for your injuries but also for any loss of earnings you have suffered as a result of time off work after your accident.

    What if I can’t afford to claim compensation?

    We believe that anybody who has been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence should be able to claim personal injury compensation. Paying legal fees upfront can quickly become expensive, and in the aftermath of an accident your finances may be affected if you can’t go to work as a result of your injuries. That’s why Accident Advice Helpline’s professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis. We won’t charge you any upfront fees for our services, and we even offer free, confidential advice.
