Knee injury claims

The joints and tendons of the knee are especially vulnerable from heavy lifting, slips, trips and falls at work.  Injuries can arise from both direct trauma in a specific incident or from musculoskeletal disorders developing over a longer period.  

If your job involves physical exertion, a knee injury can make it difficult for you to carry out your duties.  If your employer has failed to fulfil its duties under UK legislation, then it could be held liable for an accident or poor working practices.

If you have suffered an injury to your knees that wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.  Work Claims Bureau have helped thousands of UK workers to fight claims and recover the compensation they deserve.

You may initially be daunted by the prospect of making a claim.  Your employer should have a policy of insurance which covers them if they have to pay out compensation to an employee as a result of a personal injury claim.  These eventualities are precisely why firms take out liability insurance.

Other losses in knee injury claims

  • Loss of earnings
  • The cost of medication / prescriptions.
  • The cost of care and assistance in carrying out everyday tasks
  • The cost of transport to and from medical appointments
  • The cost of private physiotherapy, rehab and medical aids

Our director Michael Walker says:

“We are the ones to trust when it comes to making a work accident claim.  Many of our clients are unfamiliar with the claims process; they need to be told in clear terms how the matter is progressing, and provided with the reassurance that we are doing a thorough job.  

We keep in contact with clients through every step, from submitting the Claim Form to negotiating with the other side and, if necessary, issuing the claim through the courts.  Any award of compensation is fair and covers every aspect of your pain, suffering and loss. We do this on the basis of a No Win, No Fee agreement, whereby if we are not successful there’s not a penny for you to pay in legal costs and if we are, any amount we take from damages is capped so that you are not shortchanged.”
