Tendon and Ligament Injury Claims
Claims National can help deliver the compensation you deserve for your Tendon or Ligament Injury Claim.
Tendons are the fibrous tissues that connect muscles to bones, acting as springs to help movement. Damage to tendons can therefore affect our ability to walk, run, or even do anything as simple as opening a door or lifting a cup of coffee. Common injuries affecting the body’s tendons include: tendonitis(tendinosis), tears and subluxation.
Ligaments attach bones to other bones, they are the connective tissue in our joints at the elbows, knees, wrists etc. Damage to ligaments can impair a person’s control over their range of motion, making joint movement difficult and painful. Serious ligament damage can take multiple surgeries and months of rehabilitation to recover. Common injuries to the body’s ligaments include: sprains (or tears) and strains.

Incorrect manual handling work can result in elbow ligament injuries, shoulder ligament injuries, and hand injuries. Ligament injuries are not always created by one single incident. In fact, repetitive strain injuries can also occur from incorrect manual handling.
Slips, trips and falls are another common cause of ligament injuries, either by putting your hand out as a response to a fall – thereby injuring your wrist, hand, or thumb – or by ligaments such as your knee stretching too far during a fall.
Torn, strained or ruptured ligaments can be extremely painful, and often have a long recovery period, which can negatively affect the victim’s quality of life. Moreover, in some cases, surgery may be required, and physiotherapy is always recommended by a doctor, which can be rather expensive.
Thumb ligament damage is likely to reduce the strength of your hand, and limit the activity you can participate in. You may find it difficult to complete day to day tasks such as pouring a glass of water.
Foot ligament tears can disable the sufferer to walk and/or drive unaided, as well as preventing them from everyday activity such as playing with their children, swimming or gardening.
The anterior longitudinal ligament is the soft tissue surrounding the spine. It also supports the head and therefore, when damaged, can be quite serious. A damaged anterior longitudinal ligament disables the sufferer from sleeping comfortably at night, and they may also find it difficult to walk, stand or sit. A damaged anterior longitudinal ligament is often an effect of whiplash, which is commonly caused through road traffic accidents. The most severe and life affecting result of a severely torn anterior longitudinal ligament, is that of the victim not being able to feed themselves. This can cause major distress for the victim and contributes to a decrease in their quality of life.
