Osteoarthritis Claims

Compensation for Osteoarthritis Claims

Here at Beardsells Personal Injury, we are used to dealing with all sorts of compensation claims. Osteoarthritis claims are something we have gained great knowledge of throughout our 30 years of experience in personal injury compensation.

Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects the joints in your body and is the most common type of arthritis in the UK, affecting around 1 million people.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis symptoms vary from person to person and between the different joints that are affected.

Three key characteristics of osteoarthritis are:

  • Inflammation of tissues in and around the joints
  • Cartilage damage, causing friction and effecting movement
  • Growths that develop around the edge of the joints

These symptoms can lead to pain, stiffness and difficulty participating in certain activities. Osteoarthritis occurs mostly in the knees, hips, spine and smaller joints of the hands and base of the big toe. However, almost any joint can be affected.

The idea of having osteoarthritis is nothing compared to the mental effect it can have on you and even those around you. If you suffer from osteoarthritis, the chances are; you are unable to exercise. Now this may seem like a relatively small negative, but unfortunately it leads to a number of other, much more frustrating outcomes.

Lack of exercise leads to much bigger problems such as depression and weight gain; things that effect not only ourselves, but those around us. It effects our relationships with close friends and family.

Don’t let osteoarthritis take over your life. Beardsells’ team of personal injury solicitors are experienced in dealing with osteoarthritis claims and are here to help you receive the compensation you deserve, without any deduction for legal costs, insurance or other expenses. If you have a good claim, we will even fund all the costs on your behalf.

Find out how much you could claim today by filling in a quick form on the right hand side.
