Knee injuries can be caused by any number of accidents. You may have suffered a bad tackle playing football, fallen on a cracked pavement or pothole, suffered a road traffic accident (RTA) or injured it whilst at work.
However the injury occurred, if you are to make a successful claim for personal injury compensation it will need to be proven that another person (or company) is legally at fault for your injuries.
