    Who caused your sprained ankle at work?


    It’s not always easy to work out who caused your accident at work, and it’s important to be objective about these things if you are going to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Assessing who caused your sprained ankle at work can be as simple as asking yourself a few questions. Most often, it’s an employer who is responsible for a workplace accident, so by asking yourself if there was anything that could have been done to prevent your accident from happening, you can already start to figure out who caused your sprained ankle at work. If somebody else was responsible, no matter who it was, then you could make a claim for compensation within three years of your accident.

    How did you suffer a sprained ankle at work?

    An ankle sprain occurs when you damage the tendons and ligaments in your ankle, and is most commonly the result of a slip, trip or fall. You could slip on a wet floor, trip over things left lying around or even catch your heel on damaged flooring and fall. Sprains have the potential to occur in any workplace, so whether you work in a factory, a shop, or an office, you could be at risk of spraining your ankle if your workplace is not safe. It’s up to your employer to ensure that your working environment is safe and free from hazards, and if they fail to do so then they could be held liable for your accident and ordered to pay you compensation for your injuries and financial losses.

    This means that if you have taken a few weeks off work after slipping and spraining your ankle, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your loss of earnings. Even if you get sick pay from your employer, making a personal injury claim can help you out financially after your accident.
