Knee Injury Compensation Calculator 

What value could your knee injury compensation be worth?

If you've suffered a knee injury in an accident that wasn't your fault, we're here to help.

Here at PSR Solicitors, we know that knee injuries can be extremely painful, stopping you from carrying out daily activities and engaging in hobbies that you enjoy.

Since knee injuries can limit your ability to move independently, they can also cause immense psychological suffering by forcing you to become dependent on friends and family members for help and support.

Over our years of successfully representing thousands of UK-wide clients, we have helped win compensation sums for victims of knee injuries. While we understand that no amount of money can undo the pain and suffering you have endured, we've seen first-hand how a one-off lump sum can help ease patients' financial worries by reimbursing them for time taken off work, and help to fund vital rehabilitative and medical treatments.

You could be entitled to claim compensation if your knee injury was caused by another person's negligence or incompetence. If you think you may have a claim, call our friendly and informative solicitors today for a confidential, no-obligation chat about your options.

Our solicitors will listen as you speak and provide open, honest and reliable advice about your next steps.

Knee Injury Compensation Amounts

If you’re considering making a claim for compensation after a knee injury that wasn’t your fault, you’re probably wondering how much compensation you could be entitled to.

Ultimately, determining how much compensation you are likely to receive is tricky because each case is heard individually, and each payment is awarded based on the unique circumstances of the case that is being presented.

However, through our experience in representing clients throughout the UK, we’ve produced the below compensation calculator to help you estimate how much compensation you could expect to receive. Alternatively, for a more personalised estimation, contact a member of our advisory team today to discuss your case.

Anatomy of the Knee

The knee joint is the largest joint in the human body, and one of the most important. Resembling a hinge, the joint is able to flex so that the leg can extend and move back and forth with ease. Overall, the joint is a complicated structure, comprising bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and a variety of other tissues.

In the middle of the joint, three distinct bones meet to provide movement. These are the femur, which spreads through the thigh and joins with the shin bone, or tibia, and the patella, which is the overarching kneecap structure.

Accidents sustained to the knee can cause serious injuries. While breakages to the bones that make up the knee are rare, injuries involving the ligaments, cartilage and tendons are extremely common and immensely painful for those unfortunate enough to suffer from them.

While we know that any kind of knee injury is difficult to deal with, experiencing a knee injury because of another person's negligence is even more gruelling. It's for this reason that our tenacious solicitors work tirelessly to ensure our victims, who suffer needlessly because of other people's mistakes, are represented by a legal team that are determined to win them the compensation they deserve. Whatever the nature of your injury, contact us today to find out more about how you could make a claim.

Types of Knee Injuries


A fracture is a break in one or more of the bones that make up the knee joint. Because the knee joint is immensely important for movement, a breakage in this area is considered a serious injury. Until the injury heals, the pain and impact is likely to be severely life-limiting, preventing you from going to work or engaging in normal, everyday tasks. Sadly, such fractures often require surgery and can cause long-term problems, although most victims are thankfully able to make a full recovery.

Cartilage injuries

Cartilage is a tough, flexible tissue that occurs throughout the body and is often located around joints. The material acts as a shock-absorber and protects the surrounding bones from fractures and damages. Although cartilage is strong, it can be injured. If the knee is twisted or bent out of place, the cartilage can stretch or tear and become inflamed and painful. Cartilage injuries often take time to heal, with rest being the main method of treatment; as such, individuals who suffer cartilage injuries often have to take time off work to recuperate properly. Sometimes, surgery is needed to remove the cartilage entirely, which can have long-term repercussions.


Ligaments are connective tissues that join tissues to bones; they keep the knee joint together and provide stability. Ligaments in the knee can be torn or strained, causing you to feel unstable when you try to put weight on your knee or walk. Such injuries often need intensive and long-term medical treatment and rehabilitation to be cured, with steps to recovery often including extensive physiotherapy and, in some cases, surgery.

Sometimes, accidents that cause damage to the knee involve many different elements, causing immense pain to victims. Some accidents, such as road traffic accidents, may have caused additional injuries to the body. Often, the exact type of knee injury that a victim has sustained cannot be easily identified, but this doesn’t mean that affected individuals shouldn’t try to claim compensation if the accident that caused their suffering was due to someone else’s negligence or incompetence.

For this reason, we strongly recommend that you speak to a member of our team today even if your type of injury isn’t listed here.

Our solicitors will listen to your experience and, if we feel you may be entitled to make a claim, an appointment will be arranged for you to discuss your injury with a qualified doctor during a medical assessment.

Causes of Injuries

For your knee injury compensation claim to be successful, we, as your defence team, must prove that your injury as a result of the actions or inactions of someone else. Tragically, there are many instances in which people can become injured because of other people’s misbehaviour, many of which are listed below. While this list encompasses some of the most common causes of negligent injuries, it is not exhaustive, and we recommend that you speak to a member of our trained advisory team today if you believe someone else is responsible for your knee injury.

Workplace Knee Injuries

Many knee injuries are sustained in the workplace, despite the fact that employers have a legal duty to protect their employees from harm. Whatever your job, duty or role, you can claim compensation from your employer if you suffer an injury in the workplace that your employer could have avoided.  According to the UK's health and safety legislation, employers should take steps to protect their employees, such as:

●      Carrying out regular risk assessments to identify hazards and mitigate the likelihood of them causing actual harm.

●      Maintaining a safe working environment at all times by ensuring spills are cleaned up and trip hazards are cleared away.

●      Providing individuals with personal protective equipment, such as knee pads, so that workplace duties do not result in injury.

Knee injuries in the workplace can happen as a result of being in a particular position, especially if the position is adopted frequently over long periods of time, by slipping or tripping, or by falling from height. Sometimes, accidents involving machinery, such as forklift trucks, can cause knee injuries.

If you are considering making a claim against your employer, you may be worried about the ramifications that such a claim will have. Here at PSR Solicitors, we have successfully launched compensation claims on behalf of many employees and understand exactly how worrying, stressful and daunting the possibility of making a claim can be. For this reason, we recommend that you contact us as soon as possible so that we can advise you on how to make your claim and provide you with peace of mind that your livelihood and reputation will be legally protected throughout the process.

As your personal solicitors, we will liaise with your employer on your behalf to limit uncomfortable situations and we'll ensure you are not treated unfairly at any point during proceedings. You have a legal right to claim against anybody who causes you harm, and your solicitor at PSR will be with you every step of the way to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Knee Injury from slips, trips and falls

Slips, trips and falls are a common cause of knee injuries and they can occur in almost any environment. If they occur in a public space, such as one which is managed by the council, or a private space that should have been closely monitored and maintained for potential risks by a business or company, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

For example, if you have injured your knee after tripping over a poorly laid pavement or falling down an inadequately lit staircase in a public space, you may be able to claim from the council or whoever was responsible for maintaining the building. Slips occur frequently when spillages happen, and companies and councils must ensure that spills are cleaned up quickly to prevent harm from occurring. Slips can happen in shops, hospitals, schools, and a wide range of other environments.

These types of accidents occur frequently, but their effects on the knee joint - which is often the part of the body that takes the majority of the impact - can be devastating. If you’ve been injured in a slip, trip or fall accident, we can help you claim compensation.
