Can you make a compensation claim after suffering a torn muscle?
Although most people have experienced a torn or tender muscle in their lives, a badly torn muscle can actually constitute a very serious and painful injury. Normally, muscle damage is categorised into four distinct types of injuries. Whilst it may be relatively easy to recover from a lightly torn muscle, you could find it difficult to move at all if the injury is more serious and you may be in a serious amount of pain.
Normally, a badly torn muscle will require medical intervention. If doctors believe that the muscle will heal itself it’s likely that they will prescribe you a course of strong painkillers and advise you to rest. Often, when people suffer this type of injury in their legs, they will need to use crutches or a wheelchair until the injury heals as the pain is so bad.
If the injury fails to heal itself, additional medical treatment may be required. In very serious cases, doctors may be required to perform surgery but this is relatively rare for this type of injury.
If you have suffered from a torn or damaged muscle, there is a chance that you could make a no win no fee claim for compensation. Whilst most people assume that you can’t make a no win no fee Johnstone compensation claim for this type of injury, this simply isn’t true. As long as you weren’t responsible for the injury and it was caused by someone or something else, there is a good chance that you will be considered eligible to make claim.
