Our knee is a vital joint in our leg and plays a huge role in movement and mobility, so a knee injury can be not only extremely painful but also very inconvenient. Knee injuries can impact your quality of life, causing pain, discomfort and even the need for surgery. If you have sustained a knee injury in the workplace, in a road traffic accident, while out in a public place or while playing sport, you may be entitled to claim compensation if it was at least partly someone else’s fault.
Serious knee injuries can also cause long-term medical complications which may sadly limit your mobility for the rest of your life. Your knee injury may stop you from being able to go to work, causing financial problems, but compensation can help you to urgently recover lost earnings and will account for any income you may lose in the future too.
Your knee injury might require specialist rehabilitation which compensation can help you access, so that you can focus on your recovery. If you have a long-term knee condition, flare-ups and pain throughout your life may also mean you need further care and support in the future. You can trust in our Personal Injury solicitors to take all these factors into account when valuing your claim.
If someone else was responsible for your knee injury, or could have taken action to prevent it, our expert Personal Injury lawyers could help you claim compensation. Your workplace has a legal duty of care to keep you safe from getting into accidents at work, and this duty of care also applies to other road users, councils and business owners. Even if you might have been somewhat responsible for the accident that caused your knee injury, it’s worth you getting in touch with our specialist team as we could still help you achieve compensation.
