Knee Injury Compensation

If you have suffered an accident that resulted in a knee injury which was not your fault, it is important to seek legal advice to help you receive the compensation that is owed to you.

The knee has a complex structure, comprising bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. As well as claiming compensation after an accident, you can also make a claim if your injury was the result of a criminal act of violence or an instance of medical negligence.

If you have been in a vehicle accident, a fractured patella, or broken kneecap, is caused by the high impact of the accident. Sports injuries also cause damages including:

  • A dislocated or twisted knee.
  • Torn cartilage, sprains or tears to ligaments.
  • The inflammation of the knee, also called Tendonitis, or patellar tendonitis, more common in athletes.
  • Bursitis, which causes fluid filled pockets around the knee joint.
  • Arthritis in the joints.

If you perform repetitive physical tasks at your place of work, this can have a heavy impact on your injury. Tasks like lowering and lifting objects and operating machinery can affect your body over time. If your workplace has cultivated this injury or quickened its effects, you may be able to claim compensation from your employer.

Claiming Compensation:

As knee injuries can be very complex and difficult to recover from, you are liable to claim compensation for:

  • Pain and Suffering caused: These injuries can take several forms, therefore the amount of compensation that you are able to claim will depend upon the severity of the injuries and the length of time that this has been affecting you.
  • Financial Loss: A knee injury can heavily impact your ability to work, especially if it involves physical labour. If your work is hampered by the injury, you could also suffer a loss of income as a result.
  • Medical Expenses: Knee injuries always require length treatment, including dressings, medication, X-Rays, home healthcare and even surgery. Other expenses could include travel to and from the hospital and support or mobility equipment.
