At First Personal Injury, our personal injury solicitors are specialists in injury compensation which includes painful and distressing knee damage. A knee injury can come about as the result of a variety of different accidents, whether that’s trips and falls, a workplace incident or a serious car crash. In some cases, this may cause excruciating pain and a lack of mobility for a certain amount of time, as well as having a damaging impact on your financial stability if you have to take time off work. This is where we come in – we will look into your case and fight for the financial coverage you deserve, helping you through the long and stressful recovery process.
The knee is an area of the body which is often injured because it takes your whole body weight, as well as additional force when you engage in any physical activity. It is made up of four joints, including several ligaments and two types of cartilage – when an injury occurs, the likelihood is that more than one of these structures will be damaged. Many of us will be affected by a knee injury to some extent over the course of our lives, yet it’s important to understand whether it involves negligence through the fault of someone else.
Types of knee injury are usually distinguished in the following ways:
Depending on the level of severity, compensation settlements for knee injury claims range from £1,000 up to £70,000. We understand the ordeal may affect your daily life in a number of ways including, difficulty walking, uncomfortable living arrangements, time off work, financial loss and painful medical treatment. You may also have to complete a number of physiotherapy sessions for months following your accident.
