A fractured knee can be very painful and if it happens to you in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation and should be contacting the solicitors in Flackwell Heath at Accident Advice Helpline.
Fracturing you knee can happen is all sorts of ways, usually because of a forceful direct blow to it. Other ways are:
- Falling over straight onto your knees
- Bumping into something knee first
- Hitting the dashboard in a road traffic accident
All it takes for a fractured knee is to have a single crack across your kneecap. Because there is no muscle covering the knee, you may be able to feel the break. Or it could be broken into several pieces, depending on the severity and angle of the bump it has received.
The symptoms of a fractured knee
The first thing you will be aware of is the intense pain, and almost immediately the knee will become swollen, and it is unlikely you would be able to bend your leg. You should not try to force it to bend because you could do more damage.
If this situation happens to you because of an accident that was not your fault, you may want to speak to the solicitors in Flackwell Heath about claiming compensation from the guilty party. This is where Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
