Will I have to pay to claim for my injury?
At Claims Direct, we specialise in No Win No Fee claims so you don't have to pay any money up front. We only get a fee when we win compensation for you. This is a safe and easy way of doing things for many people, which is why we handle around 98% of cases as No Win No Fee claims.
Will I have to have a medical for my knee injury claim?
Knees are far more complex and important than you might think. So the only way to get a true picture of the damage is for you to see a knee specialist, at our expense. They may send you for a scan or an x-ray, to make sure we have the evidence we need to claim compensation for you, based on how long your knee injury is likely to affect your life.
Will I have to go to court for a knee injury claim?
It's quite rare for knee injury compensation cases to be heard in court. In most cases, our lawyers deal directly with an insurance company on your behalf, to negotiate the right amount of money for your injuries. You don't even have to come to a lawyer's office to make your claim if you don't want to; we often help people simply using the telephone and by post.
What sort of knee injuries can I claim for?
While you might think the knee is quite a simple thing, there are actually lots of muscles, ligaments and cartilages hidden behind your kneecap. So you can pick up a wide range of knee injuries, including:
- ACL Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries
- Bursitis due to regular kneeling
- Strains and sprains caused by slips and trips
- Meniscus damage
- Cartilage tears
- Knee fractures
In most cases these injuries will eventually settle down, even if you also need an operation to fix the injury. Even so, if your knee injury was someone else's fault, you should talk to one of our friendly advisors today about claiming the compensation you deserve.
What can I claim for?
When you have suffered a knee injury that was someone else's fault, you may be able to claim compensation for all sorts of things, including:
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Additional travel
- Medical expenses
Life can be pretty difficult when you have a bad knee injury, and that often leads to loss of earnings and lots of other expenses. That's why it's essential to claim rightful compensation when a knee injury was someone else's fault.
Who's to blame for my knee injury?
Slips, trips and falls - in the workplace as well as when you're out and about - are among the most common causes of knee injuries. Loose paving stones, hidden obstacles and slippery floors have all claimed their share of victims, though other common causes of knee injuries include:
- Workplace injuries: caused by trips, or heavy lifting
- Car accidents: especially when you're in a front seat
- Sporting injuries: due to dangerous or violent illegal tackles
- Slips, trips and falls: everywhere from public parks to pavements
In all of these cases, if you have suffered a knee injury it is very likely that someone else was at fault and you may be entitled to claim compensation. To find out more talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
