Knee compensation can go a long way to correcting long-term issues that have resulted from medical negligence or accidents that have caused serious knee injuries. Making knee injury claims can help you make that change in your life to recover and come back stronger than ever after suffering pain, distress and discomfort through no fault of your own. The knee is highly complex, with bones, muscles, cartilage, ligaments and tendons all coming together in one place. An injury to your knee to any of these components can cause extreme pain and can severely restrict your ability to move your leg. If you have suffered an accident that was not your fault and it has caused either temporary or permanent injury to your knee, you could be entitled to seek soft tissue knee injury compensation.
With any case of personal injury we know that the circumstances will be specific to you. That is why when you enquire about a knee injury compensation claim we’ll talk over the detail of the incident that led to your knee injury. With this information, we can investigate and build a strong case for knee compensation, helping you to cover the cost of any medical treatment, medication and rehabilitation that is required as part of your recovery, as well as covering general damages and the psychological and physical distress you have suffered, and even any loss of earnings that you have sustained. The Hampson Hughes team is here to help you secure maximum knee injury compensation amounts in order to assist and support you throughout your recovery period.
You may be entitled to seek knee injury compensation if your injury has been caused by an accident that was not your fault or through medical negligence. It is a complex process to make a knee injury claim, therefore if you speak to us as soon as you can after the incident, we can help you put together a strong case, collating all relevant information and evidence on your behalf.
Your knee compensation will cover the pain and suffering that was a direct result of the accident or medical negligence. This amount will depend on the severity of the injuries and the length of recovery time. The compensation will also cover any financial loss you have experienced in the form of loss of earnings through missing work as a result of the incident and any medical expenses that you have been expected to cover since your knee injury.
The amount of knee compensation you will receive as part of successful knee injury claims will depend on the severity of your injuries as previously advised. As each case is unique, we cannot tell you exactly what you can expect to receive for your specific injuries, but what we can do is provide you with knee injury compensation amounts guidlines, as stated below:
Type of Injury
Severe knee inuries - disruption of joint, serious ligament damage, loss of function
£61,140 to £84,360
Serious knee injuries - leg fracture extending to knee joint, limiting movement
£45,700 to £61,140
Less severe knee injury - significant but lesser pain or mobility issues
£22,960 to £38,120
Moderate knee injuries - dislocation, torn cartilage or meniscus
£13,010 to £22,960
Minor knee injuries - lacerations, twisting, bruising
Up to £12,050
Of course, these are just guidelines for knee injury compensation amounts, so please contact us to discuss your own personal experience in detail with our friendly knee injury claims solicitors. They will be able to provide you with not only advice and guidance about starting the compensation claim process, but they will also be able to give you a greater idea of the compensation amounts you could awarded for your specific knee injuries.
When it comes to making a claim for personal injury or medical negligence compensation there is always a time limit to be aware of. As with all other cases of this nature, a case of knee injury compensation must begin within three years of an accident or incident where the injury was initially caused. There is a caveat, in that if you at first did not realise that your injuries were due to a specific incident, you can also claim compensation within three years of the date you came to be aware of the reason behind your injury. If a child has suffered medical negligence or injury to their knee through no fault of their own, a parent or guardian can claim compensation within three years on their behalf, or they can make a claim within three years of the date of their 18th birthday.
The cost of making an knee injury compensation claim might seem prohibitive and a stumbling block at first, but we are here to make sure you have all the help you need. Give our team a call and we can talk through all available funding options for you including any relevant insurance policies that will cover the cost of a legal claim. In the majority of cases we can act for you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis in the form of a CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement). A CFA ensures that, should your claim for knee injury compensation be unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny towards the associated costs.

Kelly claimed £23,000 and changed her life. She started by taking our free 30 second claim test and found out how much compensation she was entitled to.
Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
Fantastic service, the attention to all the details was super impressive. They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough!
