Knee injuries explained
In our day-to-day life, we rely heavily on our knees without even noticing. However, our knees are very delicate and complex body parts and even a mild injury can stop us from doing simple tasks. With a knee injury, you may not be able to walk easily, ride your bike, stand for extended periods or lift things up which might leave you unable to work.
Whether it is a knee ligament injury or another soft tissue injury, if someone else's negligence resulted in your injury, you should talk to a personal injury claims solicitor.
Most common causes and types of knee injuries
There are all kinds of scenarios that can cause a knee injury. Here are the most common causes:
- Accidents at work caused by trips or heavy lifting
- Accidents during sports caused by dangerous tackles
- Car accidents, especially when you’re in the front seat or on your bike
- Slips, trips and falls which can happen everywhere.

- Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries (ACL)
- Bursitis due to regular kneeling
- Strains and sprains caused by slips and trips
- Meniscus damage
- Cartilage tears
- Knee fractures
