Need to make a wrenched knee injury claim? We can help. At Accident Advice Helpline our lines are open 24/7 on 0800 689 0500 so you can call whenever you need advice about your legal options. We’ve helped thousands of people to claim compensation and we can provide all the information you need to decide on the course of action that’s best for you.
Our advice is free and we’ll never pressure you into making a claim, but you should be aware that if you do want to claim then you’ll need to do so within three years of the accident happening and you’ll need to have had your injury formally diagnosed by a doctor.
Wrenched knee injuries
Because we work with a lot of accident victims, we know that a wrenched knee can be a serious problem. In some cases it can even do permanent damage. Your doctor will normally be able to testify to how serious it is but in some cases an independent medical assessment may be necessary. If this is the case, we can help you to arrange it. It is important to have a clear impression of the injury and how it is likely to affect you as this will affect the level of compensation you are eligible for.
If you have wrenched you knee entirely due to your own carelessness, you won’t be able to claim, but if, for instance, it happened when you tripped over something in the street or slid on a wet floor that hadn’t been signposted, you may well have a case. We can help you to find a solicitor with the right kind of expertise for the particular circumstances of your accident, giving you the best possible chance of winning compensation.
No win, no fee
At Accident Advice Helpline, we only take on cases on a no win, no fee basis. This means you don’t have to pay us if your case is lost and it also means you won’t need to worry about paying money up front. The law ensures that you will always keep most of your compensation if you win.
In addition to these benefits, the no win, no fee system should give you confidence that we’ll work hard on your behalf, since if we don’t, we won’t get paid.
Covering your costs
A wrenched knee injury can make it very hard to get around and may result in you being laid up at home whilst it heals. We’ll make sure you can work with your solicitor over the phone so that this doesn’t affect the processing of your case. If you lose out on earnings because your injury stops you from getting to work, let your solicitor know, as you may be able to reclaim the money as part of your claim. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to do the same with expenses related to your claim.
Getting compensation is a great way to put the stress of your accident behind you and concentrate on getting better.
