Are you thinking of claiming for an ACL injury?


What is an ACL injury?

An ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury is a musculoskeletal injury in the knee common to athletes, and also often results from road traffic accidents.

An ACL injury is the result of rapid deceleration followed by a sudden or sharp stop or change in direction. It is important to receive treatment for any ACL injury as not only does it incapacitate the sufferer and make it very painful to walk but if it remains untreated it can lead to an increased chance of developing osteoarthritis.

Forms of treatment

There are two main forms of treatment - surgery and rehabilitation. They can both be very expensive and time consuming. If the injury was the result of someone else’s negligence then in order to compensate you for your inconvenience and loss you could be awarded damages for personal injury.

Getting compensation

The severity of the injury will vary depending on the extent of damage, but in extreme circumstances can result in severe disability.

If you are suffering from an ACL injury as a result of an accident which was not your fault then you could be entitled to compensation by law. You should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible if this is the case as you only have three years from the date of the accident to bring any claim.

If you win, the compensation will be paid for by the other party’s insurance company and most personal injury solicitors will operate on a no-win, no-fee basis.
