Fractured knee


What can cause a fractured knee?

A fractured knee is usually caused by a forceful direct blow to the knee, such as:

  • Contacting the dashboard in a road traffic accident
  • Direct knock made whilst playing sport
  • Falling over straight onto your knees
  • Bumping into something knee first

A fractured knee may have a single crack across the kneecap, or be broken into several pieces, depending on the severity and angle of the bump it has received.

Signs and symptoms of a fractured knee

Firstly you will experience intense pain and almost immediately the knee will become swollen, it is unlikely you would be able to bend your knee.  If the fracture is a single one right across the kneecap, because of the lack of muscle covering the knee, it is possible to feel the gap in the bone.

If your fractured knee happened in an accident

If your fractured knee happened in an accident, or criminal assault and you were not at fault, it is likely you will be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.  This might well include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of earnings
  • Private medical treatment
  • Extra costs incurred because of the accident
  • Replacement of equipment or accessories damaged in the accident
  • Anxiety
