Soft tissue knee injury (Up to £10,400)

You could be awarded up to £10,400 as compensation for suffering a soft tissue knee injury in an accident.

Soft tissue knee injuries include knee sprains, lacerations and severe bruising. A knee sprain is a very common injury affecting the ligaments attached to the knee joint. It can be caused by overstretching the ligaments from a twisting motion, hence ‘twisted knee’. Knee lacerations and severe bruising are usually claimed alongside other injuries.

Dislocated knee (£11,200 ~ £19,900)

You could be awarded between £11,200 and £19,900 as compensation for suffering a dislocated knee injury in an accident.

A dislocated knee is a very common knee injury. It can be caused internally or externally. An external dislocation can be caused by an impact to the knee from being hit or falling onto the knee. An internal dislocation is where the pressure inside the leg stretches and tears the leg muscle ligaments holding your kneecap in place. This internal pressure can be caused by a sudden change of direction when running.

Broken knee (£11,200 ~ £33,000)

You could be awarded between £11,200 and £33,300 as compensation for suffering a broken knee injury in an accident.

A broken knee is one of the most common injuries sustained in a car accident. A cracked kneecap would be considered as a mild knee fracture. A crushed or shattered kneecap can result in serious long term damage, considerable pain, possible knee deformities and permanent movement disability.

Severe knee injuries (£19,900 ~ £73,100)

You could be awarded between £19,900 and £73,100 as compensation for suffering a severe knee injury in an accident.

Severe knee injuries can be caused by road accidents and medical negligence. Serious knee injuries can be permanent or take many years to heal. Lengthy treatment and surgery will be required, including arthroplasty, which is knee replacement surgery. People with serious knee injuries are likely to develop osteoarthritis and suffer from severe movement disabilities.
