Knee Injury Claims
Over £90 million compensation recovered for our UK clients – Russell Worth Solicitors
Damage to the knees leading to compensation
We tend to take our knees for granted, but if they get injured, knees are very painful and disabling. Millions of people work in jobs that require manual labour, and many people suffer injuries to their knees each year, just doing their day to day job.
Knee injuries are a serious condition which can be long lasting, often affecting people’s ability to earn their living, incurring loss of earnings now or in the future, as well as other ongoing medical, treatment and other expenses.
At Russell Worth, we passionately believe that many injuries can be prevented if employers take the time to make sure their employees are safe, and we have a team of specialist lawyers who will fight to obtain the compensation to which our clients are entitled.
If you have suffered a knee injury and would like a free Claim Assessment, please call us now on 0800 028 2060 or complete our Online Claim Assessment and we will be pleased to explain your legal rights and options.
“Outstanding client service from start to finish. From the very first time I called Russell Worth I was impressed with their friendly professionalism. I had called a number of the TV advertised compensation lawyers and large firms with impressive websites and received nothing but poor service from what appeared to be over-worked and under-trained staff. I had hesitated to call RWS because they are located at the other end of the country to me, but I’m so glad I made that call. RWS are just the very best at listening, understanding my situation, putting me at ease and coming up quickly with a plan of action that resulted in more compensation than I had expected possible. Actually, the TV advertised legal firms had told me I couldn’t expect any compensation for my injuries. Thanks heavens for RWS!!”
Do you spend a lot of time on your knees? Working in manholes, in underground or cramped areas, crouching down?
If you have suffered injury as a result of putting strain on your knees, you may be able to claim. Kneeling may be an unavoidable part of your job, but your employer should ensure that you are properly trained to avoid injury. Even if your employer provides protective equipment for your knees after years of failing to provide that equipment, you may still be able to claim.
We can help anybody whose employers have failed to follow the regulations to ensure protection for their employees – for example, carpet fitters who receive inadequate training or poor equipment; phone engineers who suffer permanent knee damage after working on their knees; or roofers and builders who spend their day going up and down ladders with heavy loads, followed by hours of kneeling to do more intricate work.
Even if you have only just noticed problems after years of working on your knees, you may still be able to claim. You have three years to claim, with the three years usually running from the time your doctor diagnosed your knee injury.
What can you claim for?
Anything that your injury costs you, such as
- Injury compensation
- Loss of earnings – past, present and future
- The cost of retraining for other work should you lose your job because of your injury
- Treatment fees, such as Physiotherapy or operation costs
- Medication expenses
- Travel expenses
- Pension loss
