    Knee injury claims


    Knee injury claims can be made following accidents or injuries that are likely to have been caused by a third party. The most important element to consider is negligence – was someone else negligent in some way, and did this lead you to suffer an injury to your knee? The long-term effects of a knee injury can be problematic for some, whereas others will make a full recovery. You never know which category you may fall into.

    You may feel self-conscious about claiming for a knee injury, but there is no need to feel like this. If you were hurt and you know a third party was responsible, even if only by accident, you have suffered because of their actions. That means there is a chance to claim something in compensation.

    Treatment and symptoms

    Treating a knee injury is important, because it will ensure you get the right diagnosis and therefore the correct treatment, too. Even if you feel your injury is minor, the symptoms of a knee injury can seem quite innocent, yet could mask a more serious injury that could cause you problems in the future if you don’t get it seen to now.

    Sometimes, rest and recuperation may be all that is required. In more complex cases, such as when the kneecap is broken, an operation may be needed, or the knee may need to be encased in plaster until it heals.
