Ligament injuries can be very painful and cause a considerable loss of mobility to the person suffering as a result. In the more severe of cases, injury compensation claimants making a claim after suffering ligament injury will require surgery to properly recover. Medical experts and specialist injury compensation solicitors will refer to ligament injuries as soft tissue injuries.
Ligament injury claims are commonly associated with slipping and tripping accidents. For example, when someone slips on a wet floor at work, or within a supermarket, they are likely to sprain an ankle or knee and in doing so over-stretch the ligaments and suffer a tear or stretch. The same kind of injury can be caused by tripping in a pothole.
Our specialist no win no fee injury compensation solicitors can help you claim a compensation settlement that includes a value for the extent and severity of your ligament injury as well as covering lost wages, unused gym memberships and costs for care and support from a loved one or other carer, for example.
Who can claim ligament injury compensation?
Any person who is caused to suffer a ligament injury through the negligence of someone else (an organisation, business, workplace or public venue) can make a claim for injury compensation. As with all claims for injury compensation, a claimant will succeed if it can be proven that they have been exposed to the risk of injury because of the negligence of others.
In slipping accidents, a ligament injury victim will usually have a valid slipping accident claim if there is no hazard warning sign present, or if it can be shown that the company, business or people responsible for the location have failed to ensure that the area is safe and fit for purpose.
It can be difficult to succeed with tripping accident compensation claims, which is why it is important to instruct a specialist injury compensation company like Direct2Compensation to manage your claim for you. Read our article about proving liability in tripping accident claims to find out more about winning a tripping accident claim.
Any person wishing to claim ligament injury compensation will also have to provide medical evidence to support their claim and must have seen their doctor or visited a hospital for medical treatment.
If you are injured in a slipping accident, always make sure that you report the details of your accident to the right people, that will usually be your supervisor if you slip on a wet floor at work. If you slip in a shop, report the matter to customer services and make sure that the details of your accident are recorded within an accident book. You should also ensure that you seek professional medical attention from your GP or local A&E Department so that the details of any injury are recorded on your medical records. This will provide the evidence you need to support your claim for injury compensation and give your solicitor the best chance of succeeding with your claim.
Recover sooner by claiming
Recovering from ligament injuries can take many months and in some cases require surgery. When the severity of a ligament injury is worse, the value of your claim will increase accordingly. One thing that is common across all claimants of injury compensation is that they want to recover quickly and return to their usual activities. With this in mind, it is important to avoid delaying any claim you wish to make as not only can making a claim quickly help to ensure the best chance of a positive outcome, it may also help you to recover more quickly.
The reason for this is that alongside claiming a compensation settlement, your solicitor will also look to obtain specialist rehabilitation therapies at the expense of the defendant for you. Claiming injury compensation isn’t all about money, in many cases it is about getting the right medical and rehabilitation therapies as quickly as possible. One of the things that makes Direct2Compensation so special is that we look to help our injury compensation claimant clients get medical treatment as well as financial compensation settlements.
