Have you suffered serious knee ligament injuries through no fault of your own?
In sporting activities and work situations, the knee can be vulnerable to injury. The knee can be bashed in an aggressive encounter on the rugby or soccer field and despite all the safety measures required by law in the workplace, the patella or knee cap and its attached ligaments are often casualties of knock and strain accidents.
The ligament located at the front of the knee is known as the Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL. It actually helps to stabilise the leg by keeping the thigh bone from forward slipping, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to walk properly, if at all. Those affected by serious knee ligament injuries through no fault of their own can claim compensation.
Swollen and painful
In sports such as football, serious knee ligament injuries take place when the field player suddenly stops. When this happens he’ll experience a click in the knee which then quickly becomes swollen and painful. If you’ve been unfortunate enough to have sustained a knee injury which was not your fault, at work or on the sports field, then call Accident Advice Helpline now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, for help in making a claim. It will cost you nothing to get an injury claim started and all we’ll need to know at the outset -through a brief, 30-second test – is whether you were blameless for the accident, that it took place within the last three years and that you received medical treatment from your GP or at a hospital.
Knee ligament injuries
Accident Advice Helpline have trained personal injury lawyers waiting to take your case on a no-win, no-fee basis. If your claim is unsuccessful you won’t have to pay your lawyer’s fees.
The compensation you receive will be yours to spend as you wish. When your claim is settled your lawyer may also be able to claim back your expenses incurred since the accident. Items like prescription charges, specialist medical treatment such a physiotherapy, carer and home support staff costs and even for travel to appointments such as taxi fares.
The amount you may receive in compensation depends largely on the extent and degree of severity of your knee ligament injuries and their effect on your future well-being.
