Knee injuries and symptoms
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, there is pretty much nothing we don’t know about knee injuries and symptoms.
This is because for over 16 years we have helped countless people make claims for compensation after they have suffered from knee injuries and symptoms and have decided to make a claim for compensation.
Knee injuries and symptoms can take on many forms but broadly speaking you can suffer from:
- Ligament injuries
- Cartilage injuries
- Muscle injuries
- Kneecap injuries
If you would like to speak to a member of our team about your knee injuries and symptoms then give Accident Advice Helpline a call today.
We have a dedicated helpline number which is available for you to use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our team of advisers will be on hand to answer your call and provide you with free, no-obligation advice to help you establish if you can make a claim, and how much that claim might be worth.
Alternatively, you could take our 30-second test which will give you a good indication of how much compensation you can expect to take home with you if your case is a success.
If you are suffering from knee injuries and symptoms then you might have damaged a ligament. There are actually four ligaments in the knee, all of which can be damaged.
For example, you could damage the anterior cruciate ligament if your knee has been bent in the wrong direction. Such knee injuries and symptoms are usually caused as a result of the knee twisting in the wrong direction as a result of a slip or fall.
You might suffer from a medial collateral ligament tear (MCL tear) which can be caused by a forced impacting on the knee (as can occur during some contact sports).
A meniscus tear is a tear in the cartilage which lines the knee joint. This can be caused through general wear and tear and the knee injuries and symptoms include pain, swelling, locking, instability and difficulty walking. Such injuries can occur as a result of repetitive strain usually within the work place.
If you think you may have experienced this at work then you can contact Accident Advice Helpline to see if we can help you make a claim against your employer if they have failed to provide you with appropriate training or equipment to minimise risk. Call 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no-obligation advice about making a claim for compensation.
