It can always be a bit of a shock to the system when we suffer an injury of some kind, and we are often left wondering what we can do about it if it was someone else’s fault. The first thing to do, of course, is make sure you receive proper medical treatment and then rest up and recover from your injury. If you are seeking sprained ankle advice about claiming compensation after an accident that was not your fault, contacting Accident Advice Helpline is a great way to see where you stand.
How a sprained ankle can affect you
Depending on how serious your sprained ankle is and what you do for a living, some people will be able to carry on relatively normally at work. Perhaps you may need to take another form of transport to work or get a lift from a colleague, but unless you do a very physical job or need to be on your feet all day, a sprained ankle may simply be an inconvenience. However, for other people having a sprained ankle may mean that they cannot work at all, and therefore this affects their income. This is one of the main reasons people seek out advice about claiming; if you have not been able to work because of someone else’s negligence, it is only right that you should be able to claim compensation.
Was your accident someone else’s fault?
When it comes to claiming personal injury compensation, the key factor is negligence. Did somebody else’s actions, either at work or elsewhere, directly or indirectly cause your accident and subsequent sprained ankle? Did you trip over in a shop for example, of fall down damaged steps that should have been fixed? Maybe there was a spillage on a staircase in a public place, and nobody had cleaned it up or placed a hazard sign in front of it. These are all cases where negligence may have been responsible for your injury, leaving you seeking sprained ankle advice as you are now.
