Do you have a knee injury?
If you’ve been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences, or chase around trying to find the right specialist help.
Your knee may not look bruised or swollen, but even an injury that seems mild can cause lasting problems. Occasionally, injury to the knee can cause permanent damage. Some injuries will get better with simple rest and recuperation but others need surgery or plaster.
To get the best treatment, it’s essential to seek medical attention and diagnosis as soon as possible after your injury occurs.
Why claim for a knee injury?
When you have an accident, you need the right help, tailored to your situation.
Knee injuries can be complex and painful, affecting muscles, bones, cartilage, tendons and ligaments.
Knee injury compensation
Knee injury claims can be made following accidents or injuries likely to have been caused by a third party. The accident may have happened in a public place, at work, or on the road. Was another person negligent, and did this cause you to suffer a knee injury? In some cases there is a clear answer. Other cases are less clear. If you’re not sure if you can claim, call us for free on 0800 689 5659 to talk it through.
Knee injuries also arise from medical negligence, including surgical errors and delays in treatment. If you suffer an injury in this way, we can help you.
Often, knee injury reduces mobility and causes pain. You may not be able to drive or even work. This may put you under pressure financially. In addition, knee injury can cause long-term problems. Not everyone makes a full recovery. If you suffer lasting issues, compensation can assist you by easing financial worries while you focus on recovery.
Making a claim for compensation might seem like extra hassle, but compensation can really help to ease the stress, covering medical costs, loss of earnings, and continuing care.
What’s covered in a claim?
Our 30-second test™ can help you to understand how much compensation you could receive for a successful claim. As with any personal injury claim, the amount will depend upon your circumstances, and on factors including:
- Your pain and suffering
- The severity of your injury
- The treatment you need after your accident
- The amount of time (if any) you take off work
- How your injury makes an impact on your life
- The outlook for recovering from your injury
For any type of accident that causes a knee injury, we can help. Just call us on 0800 689 5659.
Can you make a claim for knee injuries?
You may be able to claim if you can answer ‘yes’ to the following:
- Did your accident leave you injured?
- Was your accident somebody else’s fault?
- Did your accident happen in the last three years?
Employers have a duty of care to ensure people can do their jobs safely. For example, if your job involves heavy lifting, you should have been trained in how to do this. If your employer was negligent, you could claim compensation. Usually, your employer’s liability insurance will cover any award, so no one loses out.
Owners of public places, such as shops, pubs and restaurants, have a responsibility to keep you safe: preventing spillages and trip hazards, for example. If an employer or owner fails to follow safety regulations and if this leads to your injury, you may be able to make a claim.
Getting medical advice and proof of injury is important. If you decide to make a compensation claim, this may support your case.
The quickest way to find out whether you could claim is to call us on 0800 689 5659. Our friendly, legally trained advisors can answer all your questions, and help you get the compensation you’re due.
