If you have suffered an injury to your knee after an accident caused by somebody else then it’s important to make sure you have your injury assessed by a medical professional as soon as possible after your accident. This is so that you can receive the treatment needed to put you on the road to a speedy recovery – the sooner you receive treatment, the sooner your knee injury can start to heal. A knee injury evaluation may involve nothing more than a few checks, or you may need an x-ray to assess your injuries, but if you later decide to make a claim for personal injury compensation then this evaluation could provide useful evidence to support your claim.
See your GP for a knee injury evaluation
Even if you suspect you have suffered a minor knee injury, seeing a medical professional for a knee injury evaluation after your accident is a good idea. You may have suffered a serious injury such as a fractured kneecap after a high-speed car collision, or a more minor injury such as a torn ligament after a slip or trip at work. Whatever has happened, having your injuries evaluated means you’ll get the treatment you need. This might involve surgery or physiotherapy, but for more minor injuries it may simply be a case of reducing inflammation and swelling with ice and resting your knee at home.
This could mean taking time off work and your earnings could be affected, which can put you in a difficult position financially. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings if you have been injured and somebody else was to blame.
