Have you suffered a knee ligament injury at work you believe your employer to be responsible for? Do you wish to raise a claim for personal injury compensation? If you do, we here at Accident Advice Helpline can assist.
Your knee ligaments are strong strings of tissue that connect the bones in your body. In the knee the two important ligaments that can get injured are the anterior cruciate ligament, and the posterior cruciate ligament. If either of these two ligaments become torn, you may need to undergo corrective surgery.
These types of injury most often occur in sports and because sportsmen and women voluntarily enter sports of their own free will, fully aware of the potential risks of injury, it is not normally possible to claim compensation. But if the injury occurred as a result of manual handling in a warehouse, then the employer could be liable, especially if the injury victim had either not been properly trained, or has been asked to move a load that was too heavy and/or bulky.
