Muscle Injury Compensation Claims Information
When you sustain any kind of injury, it can be extremely problematic. Muscle injuries, for example, can prevent yours from being able to move as you should, lift heavy weights and cause long-term pain. Any kind of muscle injury can cause serious problems, particularly if it causes long-term symptoms. If you’re left unable to work, travel or socialise following your muscle injury, then you need to make a claim for compensation. If you’ve sustained an injury to your muscles, get in touch with our experienced team today.
What is a Muscle Injury?
A muscle injury is commonly caused by a sprain or strain. A sprain will occur when one or more muscle ligaments are stretched, twisted or torn. A muscle strain, more commonly known as “pulling a muscle” happens when muscle tissues are stretched or torn. The injuries can be painful, tender and make the affected muscle much weaker for the duration of the injury.
In addition to the relatively common injuries that we can suffer, there are also more serious kinds of muscle injury. These are normally called muscle tears, which can involve the damaging of small blood vessels within the muscle. This can lead to localised bleeding and irritating pain.
How Much Compensation Could I Get for Muscle Injury Claims in the UK?
If you’ve suffered any kind of muscle injury that wasn’t your fault, then you could be eligible for compensation. The amount of money that you will receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and any long-term symptoms you might be left with. If the injury prevents you from working, driving or enjoying social activities, then you’ll be able to claim for additional pain and suffering.
What Does a Muscle Injury Feel Like?
As there are so many different kinds of muscle injuries, and they can occur in muscles across the body, there isn’t really any one feeling to look out for. Pain and discomfort are common, as is having difficulty moving the injured muscles.
Where Can Muscle Injuries Occur in the Body?
Muscle injuries can occur in muscle tissue across the body. Some of the most common areas are those muscles involved with heavy lifting or sporting, such as:
- Back Muscles.
- Shoulder Muscles and Neck Muscles.
- Groin Muscles.
- Ankles and Knees.
- Elbows and Forearms.

A muscle rupture is the separation of tissue in your body. This is a rare injury which can occur following heavy lifting. As such, these injuries only occur in sporting competitions and in certain workplaces. They can cause pain, swelling and distortion.
Will Muscle Injuries Cause Twitching?
When muscles become injured, they can become weakened. They can start to shake and twitch when you attempt to use them. This is normally short-term while the muscle recovers. Following serious injuries, it is possible for twitching/shaking to become a long-term condition.
