If you are involved in a road accident in Sheffield and it was not your fault and you end up injuring your knee as a result, then you should contact an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline to help you make an injury claim for compensation.
Any forceful blow to the knee usually can cause a fractured knee, which could, for instance, happen through contact with the dashboard in a road accident in Sheffield.
If this has happened to you in a road accident in Sheffield, through no fault of your own, you may be able to make a personal injury claim and you might want the help of an injury solicitor to do this.
The symptoms of a knee injury that you might sustain in a road accident in Sheffield
The first thing that will happen is you will feel intense pain. Almost immediately the knee will become swollen, and it is unlikely you would be able to bend your leg. 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 this has happened to you through no fault of your own, some time in the last three years, you may be able to make a personal injury claim using the services of Accident Advice Helpline.
The thing to do if you have a fractured knee
The first thing you should do if you think you have a fractured knee is visit your local hospital. Because the amount of damage can be so different, it is important to get treatment quickly before any displaced bones or fragments of bone cause more damage. The treatment usually lasts 6 to 12 weeks but can be longer in severe cases.
Other things you can claim for
If your fractured knee happened in a road accident in Sheffield and you were not at fault, it is likely you will be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. This might well include:
- Extra costs incurred because of the accident
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Loss of earnings
- Private medical treatment
- Replacement of equipment or accessories damaged in the accident
