Ligaments exist in the neck, chest, pelvis, wrist, knee and ankle, and whenever you get a sprain or strain in any of these areas, it is usually a ligament which is damaged and causing the pain. Different types of accidents will result in different ligament injuries. For example, if you are involved in a road traffic accident, you might sustain whiplash, or a work related injury could cause an anterior cruciate ligament injury of the knee. Where these ligament injuries are caused by somebody else´s negligence, you are entitled to make a ligament injury compensation claim.
Your first concern however should be for your health. The long term consequences of an untreated ligament injury can be frequent pain, loss of strength in the affected area and the potential for early onset arthritis. By visiting your doctor or the accident and emergency department of your local hospital, you will receive a professional appraisal of any permanent damage done by your ligament injury, and this will also help your solicitor determine an adequate amount of ligament injury compensation when making a ligament injury compensation claim.
Making a Ligament Injury Compensation Claim
Although it is not essential to use the services of a solicitor when making a ligament injury compensation claim, it can frequently be of your benefit to do so. The paperwork or online application that you have to submit to the Injuries Board Ireland for them to consider your ligament injury claim, may appear straightforward, but to ensure that you receive an appropriate amount of ligament injury compensation you should always complete it with the help of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor.
A solicitor will be able to advise you about the “special” damages you are entitled to in respect of out of pocket expenses such as trips to receive therapy for your ligament injuries at the local hospital, or any loss of earnings you may have experienced. Your quality of life may have suffered due to your ligament injuries, and possibly you are temporarily unable to drive and having to use a more costly transport service. It is for reasons such as these that 90% of people making a ligament injury compensation claim will choose to use the services of, or be represented by, a solicitor.
