Suffering a knee injury can be both painful and frustrating. We understand the impact this can have on your life, from time off work to missing out on your favourite activities.  Our knee injury claims solicitors will strive to secure you the compensation you deserve.

How To Make A Knee Injury Claim

Call our team on 0800 056 4110 and we’ll take you through a free initial consultation. We’ll ask you how the injury happened, who you believe to be at fault, and how your life has been affected.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

We can help you to claim for:

  • Sprains and tears (ligament damage)
  • Strains (muscle or tendon injury)
  • Cartilage injury (meniscus)
  • Fractured kneecaps
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Faulty knee replacements.

The effects of a knee injury may be temporary or life-changing, such as needing to take time off work to recover, or to change careers if you’re no longer able to continue in your current line of work. You may also no longer be able to enjoy your hobbies.

The physical effects of a knee injury may also impact on your mental health. We’ll work to get you a compensation settlement that covers not only the physical damage, but also any psychological impacts.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Knee Injury Claim?

Generally speaking, you’ll have three years from the date of the incident to make a claim. However, there are some exceptions to these time limits, for example you may have less time if you were injured abroad.

You should contact us as soon as possible to avoid running out of time. This also gives us the best chance to gather the evidence needed to support your claim.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Knee Injury?

As every case is different, there are no set compensation amounts for a knee injury. For example, if you need lifelong treatment you should receive a higher settlement. Once we understand your situation, we’ll be able to give you an idea of how much compensation you may receive. Our personal injury specialists will look at the following factors while assessing your case:

  • The severity of the pain or damage
  • Difficulty walking
  • Loss of earnings
  • Whether or not you’ll need ongoing support or further treatment.

No Win No Fee Knee Injury Claims

The majority of our knee injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay most of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your final compensation.

We’ve worked on hundreds of knee injury compensation claims just like yours, and have leading lawyers throughout the country. Our compassionate teams will listen to your story and strive to get you the compensation you deserve.

We understand that the effects of a knee injury can go beyond the physical damage. It might affect your ability to enjoy certain leisure activities such walking, running or playing sports. We’ll factor all this into your claim.

If needed, we can help you access rehabilitation and interim compensation payments so that you can cover immediate costs while your claim is ongoing.
