Knee Injury Claims Compensation: Claim the compensation you are owed after a knee injury
Between April 2011 and March 2012, 22,433 major injuries such as amputations, fractures and burns to employees were reported. So, if you’ve sustained a knee injury through no fault of your own, we understand how it can put your life on hold and that you probably want to know whether you are entitled to compensation to support you. Our personal injury solicitors are on hand to help make your claim go through as smooth as possible, allowing you to feel some relief and closure after your accident.
The trouble with accidental trips, slips and falls is that the victim usually lands on their knee first. This means that your knee takes the full force of the impact. Once you have suffered a knee injury there is a possibility you may have recurring trouble with your knee for years to come.
Know Your Knee
Your knee is made up of bones, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fluid. It’s the main joint in the lower body that helps you walk and move. The knee is also a particularly vulnerable part of the body because it carries your full body weight and takes to largest amount of the impact when you walk, run or jump. This means the knee can be easily damaged.
When you are the victim of a knee injury your life can be affected in many ways:
- You may have to take time off workYou may have to give up work completely
- You may not be able to put your body weight on the injured knee and therefore be unable to walk until the injury has healed
- You may need physiotherapy
- You may not be able to play sports again
- You may have difficulty taking care of children
- You may suffer difficulty sleeping
- You may have to take painkillers for a long period of time.
Injuries can affect your way of living in many ways, if you have suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault you don’t have to endure to life changing situations without being compensated. These situations can involve:
- Painful medical procedures
- Having time off work
- Giving up work permanently
- Difficulty walking
- Being unable to keep fit
- Trouble Sleeping
- Being unable to care for and play with your children
You are well within your right to be financially rewarded for your troubles, even if that includes claiming against your current employer.
Types of Knee Injuries
Sprains and strains
A sprain or sprain is when the muscles and tendons within the knee are over stretched and can sometimes fray. This can be extremely painful, may on occasions swell up and can sometimes stop you from walking. Sprains and strains will heal over a period of time and you are still entitled to claim a financial reward if the accident wasn’t your fault.
The Menisci is a rubbery pad that lives between the upper and lower leg bone. It acts as a shock absorber and cushions and impact that would otherwise be taken by the joint bone. During an accident the menisci can tear, this will lead to extreme pain, swelling, and a locking of the knee. This will usually heal itself yet in some serious accident cases it will require an operation to fix the torn menisci pad. The compensation amount you can claim for this type of injury will depend upon the severity of the injury and the after effect you have suffered.
Bursitis or ‘Housemaids Knee’
This is a type of knee injury that is usually suffered by people whose job require kneeling for long periods of time such as brick layers or carpet layers. Sports mean and women can also suffer from this injury. It is when excess fluid builds up on the knee. Symptoms can usually be treated by rest and anti-inflammatory painkillers.
Torn Ligaments and Tendons
Ligaments are made of tissue and they connect the bone to the knee joint and the tendons connect the muscle to the bone. More often than not tendon and ligaments are injured during sporting accidents but can also be damaged during a car accident or fall. Torn ligaments and tendon damage can cause the knee to swell, be painful to walk on or may cause the knee to ‘give way’ when you do try and walk on it.
