Tendon injury claims
A tendon is a link between a muscle that contracts and the bone to which it is attached. You could suffer a torn tendon, pulled tendon or just have general tendon damage. When you suffer tendon damage the tendon seeps fluid out of torn fibres causing the area to swell. This fluid works as a glue and tries to repair the damage. When you have suffered a tendon injury, it is important to assess the injury as early as possible. Rest is very important in the recovery of torn tendons, pulled tendons or general tendon damage. A tendon injury is not something that exercise will make better. When the pain to your injury is reduced, a programme of personal exercises should be given to help the muscles regain their strength. The compensation awarded will reflect the timescale of pain and suffering.
Ligament injury compensation
A ligament injury can be described in many ways, for example, torn ligament, ligament damage, ligament pain, but is actually a stretch, tear or rupture. These are classified according to severity from least to greatest as first, second or third degree. The compensation awarded will reflect the severity of the injury.
Signs and symptoms of a torn ligament or ligament damage
Immediate symptoms may include stiffness, swelling and instability these can include a sudden pop in the joint. After a ligament injury it can be difficult to bear weight due to pain as a result of damage to the joint and swelling.
Treatment of ligament injury
There are various treatments that can be given to help recover from a ligament injury. Treatments include massage therapy, motion training and progressive strengthening exercises, hydrotherapy and physiotherapy.
Ligament injuries and a claim for ligament injury compensation can often be prevented if the injury is to a foot, by wearing the correctly fitting footwear, as this offers more protection.

Could You be Entitled to Ligament Injury Compensation?
A tendon is a band of tissue that connects muscle to bone. A ligament is an elastic band of tissue that connects bone to bone and provides stability to the joint.
If you have hurt a ligament or tendon through no fault of your own, you may well be entitled to make a tendon injury claim, or seek ligament injury compensation.
A tendon can be torn or pulled, or just generally damaged. You could also put in a tendon injury claim for tendonitis, whose symptoms include pain, tenderness and swelling of the affected part of the tendon.
It’s important to rest the affected area as much as possible, and get a full medical assessment early on. The compensation awarded through a tendon injury claim will depend on the extent and duration of the injury.
Likewise, you can claim ligament injury compensation in quite a few circumstances. While ligament injuries can be described in various ways, you will have stretch, torn or ruptured your ligament. These are classed as first, second or third degree injuries, with third being the most severe. As with a tendon injury claim, the amount of ligament injury compensation you will receive depends on the extent of your injury.
Treatments for ligament injuries include massage therapy, motion training and progressive strengthening exercises, hydrotherapy and physiotherapy. You may need ligament injury compensation to help pay for one or more of these treatments. However, be aware that in some cases a claim for ligament injury compensation can be avoided in foot injuries if you wear correctly fitting shoes.
