As a result of an injury to the knee or leg, you may be required to take time off work during the recovery period. You may find that you are unable to live your life as normal.

    Depending on how severe your injury is, you may have to receive physiotherapy to regain movement in your knee, or have an operation to repair a break or fracture in your leg. These medical services are a necessary step in your recovery, but you could experience a loss of earnings as a result of being off work for a period of time.

    You can be involved in an accident in which you injure your knee or leg at work, in a vehicle collision or when taking part in a sporting activity.
