    Can I claim for a leg injury?


    If you have suffered an injury through no fault of your own, be it due to a car crash, inadequate signage or a criminal act, you may be able to claim compensation for a leg injury. Injuries to our legs can cause loss of earnings or treatment costs due to our reliance on them for all our mobility needs.

    Whether you suffered a basic sprain or a compound fracture, the implications on your mobility and your ability to work during your recovery could be devastating. In serious cases extensive physiotherapy and ongoing care may be required, whilst your earnings could be severely limited.

    A quick phone call to Accident Advice Helpline could be all it takes to process your claim for a leg injury and to secure compensation.

    In order to be eligible to claim for a leg injury it must be suffered at the fault of others. In many cases fault is easy to establish; for example, if you are the victim of a crime or car accident it is easy to establish fault. In cases of slips and trips, either in public places or the workplace, it is important to consider the cause of your accident.

    If the accident was caused due to a lack of signage at a hazardous site or poor maintenance resulting in tripping hazards, you may be eligible to claim. If you are in any doubt, Accident Advice Helpline’s friendly advisors can quickly evaluate your potential to claim.

    If you have an eligible claim, all you need to successfully claim is medical evidence of your injury; this can be provided by your medical treatment providers.

    Types of leg injuries

    Leg injuries can take many forms. The most basic of these is a simple sprain resulting from almost any trip or fall; in more serious cases a fall may lead to torn ligaments that can cause extreme pain and mobility limitations that can cause loss of earnings.

    The forces involved in a serious accident may result in the dislocation of the ankle, knee or hip, which whilst quick to fix in most cases can leave ongoing pain and weakness for extended periods. If the forces are strong enough your leg injury may extend to fractured bones.

    Simple fractures will often heal in time, though the reliance on crutches or other mobility aids can cause extended loss of earnings. In more serious cases compound fractures may never fully heal, leading to lifelong suffering or even amputation.
