A knee injury is a common type of injury and you could have cause the injury by falling off a bike, being tackled in a football game, at the gym or from a fall on the street. A knee injury can occur in a car accident where an impact can cause the knee(s) to collide against the dashboard or at the workplace if an object or moving equipment strikes you on the knee. It can claim to affect other limbs, such as the ankles and the hip joints.
A knee injury can disable you and compromise your physical range, as the knee is vital for movement and flexibility in support and reaching for everyday things, like items dropped to the floor and to walk without support. The knee is a complex bone to treat and is slow to heal. Most of the times, it is claimed that rest and an ice pack treatment can be sufficient, but occasionally surgery may be necessary to prevent long term disabilities.
Recovery of the knee injury can take a while, which sometimes can incur years of treatment. It can affect a knee injury compensation claim as the knee injury can relapse with painful penalties for the victim. You will receive the 101% Compensation procedure to ensure the maximum compensation is awarded for all aspects of your knee injury claim. You can successfully claim for your personal injury if you are not at fault and the accident happened in the last three years.

Surrounding the knee joint are four ligaments. They have a specific role as a connective tissue to join bones together. The knee ligaments are strong and help to support the knee joints firmly when forces are applied during movements. A knee injury can weaken the support and no longer provide a balanced movement of the leg.
The four ligaments that can be injured have specific roles to keep your knee stable. The medial collateral ligament (MCL) and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are located on the outside of the knee joint. They both route between the femur and the fibula of the knee. The MCL is routed on the inside of the knee, whereas the LCL routes on the outside to control the sideway motions of the joint. They also protect from any unwanted forces in the respective area.
The other two knee ligaments cross each other diagonally on the inside of the knee joint. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) connects the front of the tibia to the back of the femur, and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) does same diagonally in the opposite direction. Their roles are to regulate the forward and backward motions of the knee.
One of the more common injuries to the knee is damage to the ligaments, either through a sprain or a tear of the tissue. Our knee injury compensation cases report that many accidents can cause problems with standing, walking and running from the pain and the instability caused from a knee ligament injury.
