Knee Injury Compensation Claims
Knee injuries tend not only to be extremely painful but are also one of the most debilitating workplace injuries that you can be unfortunate enough to suffer. Even relatively minor damage can make weight bearing extremely uncomfortable and put you off your feet for days, weeks or even longer.
Knee injuries can be caused in any number of ways but typically we see some common causes more than most: –
Trips and slips. By far the most common cause of knee injuries that we are asked to assist with. Depending upon the nature and impact of the incident the injuries can vary significantly from a simple but painful twisted knee through to fractures and dislocations.
Falls from height. Often involving falls from scaffolding, ladders or buildings.
Impact and/or crush injuries. Usually caused by being hit or struck by an object or machine.
Vehicle accidents. Injuries to pedestrians struck by vehicles can and often do lead to serious knee and leg injuries but the same is often true of the driver of the vehicle and any passengers.
We can also assist with knee injuries that are not as immediate when it comes to their impact.
Sometimes it is the affect longer term stress and strain on the knee that lead to the injury, such as: –
Repetitive movements or actions
Vibration exposure to the knee joint
Whatever the cause and whatever the severity of your knee injury we are here to help.
