Compensation for injured knee after car accident!
Found 7th Jul 2012
Quick description, Whilst lighting a cigarette (as a passenger) the driver of the vehicle I was travelling in got hit by another vehicle and my knee banged into the plastic dashboard. A few days after the accident my knee became sore and gradually got worse over the coming months. My doctor put me on naproxen, then ibuprofen to help with the pain. Neither worked and eventually I was sent for an xray and blood work- all came back clear. Anyway, months later i was sent to a knee specialist that has noted swelling in my knee as well as muscle deterioration in my thigh which he claims is a sign of knee problems. He also noticed a popping sound and tight tendons. I can only describe it as a toothache like pain which gets worse the more i do. Has anyone here had a similar incident and made a claim and how much was it worth?
