Knee Injury Compensation Claim Information
If you want to start a claim for a knee accident then you should discuss your case with a lawyer specialising in knee accident claims such as Tylers Solicitors. This will ensure that your claim has the best chance of success, because we have the competence and professional expertise required to process a claim for knee injuries.
How Serious Can Knee Injuries Be?
The knee joints are extremely important for mobility and independence and must support the vast majority of our total body weight. We often overestimate just how strong the knees actually are and don’t realise just how easily they can sustain injury. The joints in the knee can be undermined by general wear and tear and accidents that can cause irreparable damage rendering them unusable and leaving the victim incapacitated for a long period of time or even for the rest of their lives if the damage is bad enough.
What are the Most Common Knee Injuries?
One condition that frequently results from working as well as general wear and tear with age is osteoarthritis of the knee, more commonly known as miners’ knee. Other types of common knee injuries are generally caused by sudden, blunt force trauma as a result of being involved in road traffic and sporting accidents and accidents at home, at school, at work and in other public places. Knee injuries can also be caused by slips, trips and falls, heavy lifting or as a result of medical negligence due to improperly conducted surgery. If you or someone you know has suffered a knee injury that wasn’t your fault but that of someone else then you could be entitled to make a claim.
What are the Common Causes of Knee Injuries?
Slips, trips and falls are mainly responsible for spraining injuries where ligaments are overstretched as a result of the knee joint being twisted unnaturally. Similarly, straining injuries also happen as a result of overstretching and affect the muscles and tendons instead of the ligaments. Although relatively short term, these particular injuries can be extremely painful and prevent the victim from working for several days. Tearing of the meniscus cartilage behind the knee cap can also happen as a result of twisting and bending the joint beyond its normal motion range and can be extremely painful and debilitating for the victim.
