Have you been left with a permanent limp after an accident in a public place or at work? Being injured in a car crash that wasn’t your fault or being run over by a forklift truck at work could cause serious crush injuries and fractures that could leave you limping in the future. What if somebody else was to blame for your accident? You might not have realised that you could claim permanent limp compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you have the information you need to decide if you want to go ahead with a personal injury claim – our advisors offer confidential advice and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim.
What injuries have you suffered?
Injuries leading to a claim for permanent limp compensation usually affect the toes, feet, ankles and legs – although even a fractured hip from a fall on an icy pavement could lead to a limp if it doesn’t heal properly. Maybe you’ve slipped on a wet floor at your place of work or suffered crush injuries after being involved in a car accident with a dangerous driver. Objects falling from height onto your feet and legs – such as heavy boxes falling on you at work or bricks falling on your feet at a construction site – could also cause serious crush injuries and complex fractures which may not heal properly. A complex or compound fracture which gets infected or is not set properly could fail to heal and may leave you suffering from a permanent limp.
In some cases, your limp may affect your ability to carry out your job – for example if you have a physical job or you work as a fitness instructor or dancer. Accident Advice Helpline will take this into account when we work out your personal injury settlement and we’ll consider any loss of earnings you may suffer.
Decision time – should you claim?
If somebody else is to blame for your accident – for example if your car was hit by a speeding driver or if your boss failed to provide you with safety boots whilst working on a construction site – then you should absolutely consider making a claim. There are no upfront fees to worry about with Accident Advice Helpline, as our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis. So call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 to speak with one of our expert advisors and get advice after your accident.
