Over the past few years, several employees have ended up being awarded a knee injury workers compensation settlement. When this has occurred, their case has been successful in proving another party – namely their employer, in many cases – was negligent in some manner.
There could be many reasons why you are reading this now. But perhaps most likely of all is that you have recently had a knee injury at work, or someone you love has suffered such an injury. In this situation, you may be wondering whether compensation might be payable to you or your loved one because of what occurred.
How did your knee become injured?
Most jobs are perfectly safe, but injuries can happen in a variety of ways. If health and safety regulations are not properly adhered to, it can open the way for injuries to occur. Ligament injuries, a dislocated knee or a broken patella (the medical name for your kneecap) could all possibly occur when an accident happens. Even severe bruising can be very painful for a time, and you may not be able to put your weight on your knee.
Understanding what happened and how it came to happen is very important in such cases when your accident occurred at work. If it turns out you had no safety training, or there was a lack of safety guards on a piece of machinery you were using, for example, this could lead to a good argument for compensation to be paid to you. Similarly, slip, trip or fall hazards might be proven to have caused a fall in which you injured your knee. These are just a few examples – there are many others that could possibly occur.
