Knee Injury Claims
Injuring your knee(s) in a personal injury claim can often mean months or even years of treatment before a full recovery is made. The team at JS Miller Solicitors are specialists in knee injury claims and we fully understand the importance of arranging the right physiotherapy treatment in addition to maximising the recovery of compensation.
One of the most crucial issues to address with knee injury claims from a personal injury solicitor’s perspective is the long-term position as many knee injuries recur with very painful consequences to the victim.
Since 2010 we have worked with one of the country’s most eminent knee surgeon Mr Sanjiv Jari, also known as The Knee Doc for our clients’ rehabilitation needs and medico-legal reports. This is what “The Knee Doc” advises any knee injury victim thinking of pursuing a personal injury claim:
“I have worked with JS Miller Solicitors for some time now and have found Jeanette and her team to be very knowledgeable, efficient and helpful when representing their clients. They have considerable experience in this field and I would happily recommend them to people who have had work or accident related injuries.”Mr Sanjiv Jari
Consultant Lower Limb & Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Surgeon.Honorary Clinical Lecturer, University of Manchester.
More serious knee injuries can result in the need for ACL reconstruction surgery. Check out this video below for more guidance on one of the more common knee injury exercises following this kind of operation.
Please note that the way personal injury claims are funded will change from 01/04/2013. From this date success fees and after the event insurance premiums are no longer recoverable from the Defendant if the claim is successful and are payable by the Claimant from their damages.If you have been injured in an accident and wish to make a claim and do not want to have to pay up to 25% of your damages in success fees please contact us immediately.
Please be aware because of the bank holiday we will not be able to obtain insurance or take claims under the old regime (i.e. where no deductions are made from your damages) after 12pm on 28/03/2013
