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.
To be able to claim for the compensation you may deserve, it’s vital that you contact personal injury solicitors with experience in this area of the law.
Making a claim can be complicated, in some case involving medical evidence and witness statements. Instructing an experienced team of solicitors will ensure that you have the best chance of securing the personal injury compensation you deserve.
The following is just a guide to the potential levels of compensation following a knee injury:
Level of knee injury
|Twists and painful bruising with complete recovery within a year||Up to £4,770|
|Twists with ongoing symptoms including bruising or ligament damage which has caused permanent ongoing minor symptoms||£4,770 – £10,960|
|Torn knee cartilage or a dislocation which results in it not being as stable as before the accident occurred.||£11,820 – £20,880|
|Serious knee injury such as a fractured kneecap, tears to the cruciate or collateral ligaments, torn cartilage resulting in little movement in the knee or knee replacement surgery||£20,880 – £76,690|
