Knee Injury Compensation Amounts

The average compensation payout for knee injury vary largely depending on the type of knee compensation claims that you made. One common myth is that severity of injury is directly correlated to knee injury compensation awards. The determination of how much compensation for knee injury is a complicated process. The severity of your injury is only one factor that influences knee injury compensation amounts, there other personal factors such as your age, life style factors, occupation, knee disability rating, pain and suffering, and others will ordinarily play parts in the determination of your compensation amount. As a result, you can’t rely on a simple case study or online compensation calculator to predict how much is a knee injury worth for you.

Common Type of Knee Injury Claims

Depending on the causes of knee injury, you may be entitled to workers compensation claim, public liability claim, motor vehicle accident injury claim, or other negligent related injury claims. Common causes of knee injury are:

  • knee injury at work – workers comp knee injury claims are relatively common and often occur due to strain injuries, another common cause is to fall on knees at work, or a knee impact injury at work.
  • knee injuries from falling – it is often the case that workers carry large loads and suffer a range of injuries from slipping and falling, these include knee injuries from falling on concrete, patellar tendon injury from fall, fluid around knee after fall, damage to knee cap after fall, swollen bruised knee after fall, knee infection after fall, pain behind knee after fall, nerve damage in knee after fall. Depending on the circumstances of which your injury occurs, injured people may claim workers compensation, public liability injuries, or other negligence related compensation claims.
  • knee injury from car accident – these can occur in a car accident knee hit dashboard or knee injuries can occur due to a knee injury from rear end collision. When a motor vehicle is involved in an accident and you are not entirely at fault, the common type of personal injury claim for this scenario is motor injury claim.

In certain knee accident injury claims, you may qualify for several type of knee compensation claim for your personal injuries. If this is the situation you are facing, please be aware that different time limits apply, and you need to be mindful of how to best optimise the overall settlement amount for your knee injury claims. Foyle Legal has helped injured people with knee injury claims since 2012. Call us for your obligation free claim review.

Common Types of Knee Injuries

At Foyle Legal, we often see clients involved in one of the following types of knee injury.

  • traumatic knee injury
  • knee nerve injury
  • knee tissue injury
  • permanent knee injury
  • knee meniscus injury
  • knee replacement injury
  • knee strain injury
  • severe knee injury
  • twisted knee injury
  • dislocated knee injury
  • knee impact injury
  • torn medical meniscus
  • ACL ligament injuries

For minor injuries, physiotherapy is the most common treatment together with general practitioner review. Knee surgery is often required for severe knee injuries. Arthroscopic knee surgery and total knee replacement (TKR) are more common in severe knee injury claims.

Depending on the type of knee injury claims, if you have an accepted claim and the surgery is recommended by the treating surgeon, you can often claim medical expenses, knee prosthesis costs, reasonable medical travel expenses, rehab costs, and other associated care and assistance expenses.

If you are in the process of negotiating a knee injury lawsuit settlement, be sure to claim back medical expenses, together with other damages that you are entitled to. For the best outcome for your personal injury claim, it is strongly recommended that you consult a specialist knee injury lawyer.

Knee Injury at Work Compensation

If you have a knee injury at work, you may claim knee injury at work compensation.

This is a type of workers compensation claim, which is administrated by WorkCover WA. In Western Australia, we have a no fault workers compensation claim system, this means you will be entitled to workers comp weekly payments (i.e, workers comp salary) if you claim is a accepted by a workers compensation insurer.


WorkCover Claim Rejected (Rejected Workers Compensation Claims)

In a no fault workers compensation claim, you don’t have to prove that your employer is negligent to get medical expenses such as knee surgery paid for and get a workers comp payout. Legally, your employer can’t reject your claim because of on the ground of negligence, however, they can and often do reject claims on the basis that the knee injury is not work related. If your claim is pending, or rejected by WorkCover WA, call Foyle Legal for your obligation free claim review.

Workers Comp knee Injury Settlement

How much compensation for my knee injury at work? This depends on a range of factors. The main factor is whether the knee injury results in the injured person being unable to return to their pre-injury work or to any work for which they have appropriate education training and experience. For this reason, attempts to work out the average workers comp settlement for knee injury claims can be misleading.

Why does workers comp take so long to settle

A workers compensation knee injury will not result in a workers comp knee injury settlement straight away and the injured person will ordinarily have to reach medical stabilisation (a position where medical treatment is unlikely to make much of a difference to their presentation) before really knowing the correct amount for settlement of their knee injury at work.

For a minor knee injury, it make take 12 – 18 months to get to the stabilisation point. Once the stabilisation point is reached, you can then go through the steps to properly assess your further treatment options, losses and costs, which will have direct impact on your workers compensation settlement amount.

For example, if your knee injury requires a knee surgery, your workers comp knee surgery settlement will be factored into your overall settlement payout. As a result, this will often lead to you receiving higher amount of compensation payout. However, in most of the cases, your doctor won’t recommend surgery until you reach stabilisation point. If you had settled the claim before the stabilisation point, it’s likely that you may be missing out on the component associated with workers comp knee surgery settlement.

Permanent impairment payout amounts

When an injured worker is reviewed by a WorkCover WA approved medical specialist (AMS), the injured worker is usually provided with a whole person impairment percentage (WPI percentage) as well as a lower extremity impairment percentage (LEI percentage). The LEI percentage can be multiplied by $159,815.00 as a percentage to give a settlement amount (correct from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019).

Please note that this percentage only makes up one component of a settlement, there are other components such as weekly payments of compensation and money for future medical expenses.

Total knee replacement workers comp settlement

Total knee replacement operations are probably the most intrusive of work related knee injury operations. The WorkCover WA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairmentindicates that the extent to which a person will be awarded a whole person impairment for a total knee replacement starts at 12% whole person impairment for a good result, and increases for a fair result or a poor result.

This provides some idea about the average workers comp settlement for knee replacement procedures. To get the best workers comp payout for knee surgery procedures injured workers should ensure that they should consult a personal injury lawyer to find out the workers compensation settlement amounts for knee surgery procedures. If you have had a total knee replacement, as with other knee injury it is definitely worth getting a proper whole person impairment assessment before agreeing to a total knee replacement workers comp settlement figure.

Knee Injury from Car Accident

Don’t ignore your knee pain after a motor vehicle accident. If you have suffered a knee injury from car accident, you should report your knee accident injury to GP and record your injuries as soon as possible to put yourself in the best position to obtain the best knee injury car accident settlement amount. We see many people get their compensation reduced because they fail to report all knee ankle foot pain and other delayed symptoms to a GP.

The process for claiming compensation for knee injury from car accident, is the same as other type of car injury claims. The key in getting better compensation payout is to ensure that you assess all your injuries and future losses as a whole which includes individual injuries such as knee, ankle, neck, back, shoulder, foot, etc.

For see more details advice on what to do after a car accident injury, to make sure you are best positioned for future motor vehicle injury claims.

It is highly recommended that you seek legal advice for your car accident injury claim to ensure you get a fair compensation for all your injuries.

Common causes of knee injury in car accident

In a car accident involving front and back collisions, car accident knee hit dashboard is common and the knee can suffer a range of injuries. Other common knee injuries from car accident incur injuries to the knees of drivers and passengers when vehicles are impacted from the side.

Knee Injuries from Falling

Knee injuries from falling may result in workers comp claim, public liability claims, and other negligence related claims. If you are seeking compensation for knee injuries from falling, please call Foyle Legal to get your obligation free review. We will be able to help you to determine what is the most effective way to get compensation for your knee injuries.

We have seemed many injured people overlooked the impact of minor injuries. They don’t see a GP, and they don’t report it, thinking it’s not a big deal. The reality is, not many symptom surfaces immediately, and once they do show, it can often cause secondary injuries as the body is trying to compensate for your injury.

Don’t ignore a simple slip and fall injury, the impact on you could vary largely.

  • In a minor slip and fall public liability claim, although the average settlement for slip and fall knee injuries may not be significant, it is still important to recover all associated current and potential future costs and losses.
  • Nerve damage in knee after fall is not a common situation but when they occur, injury people should consider attending an orthopaedic surgeon to see whether they can improve their situation following the knee injury. Depending the costs of surgery, you may be looking at a significant compensation for medical treatment.
  • In general, knee replacement settlement amounts are generally higher as the injured person has undergone an invasive procedure and is likely to require revision operations in the future.
