    How to claim sprained ankle compensation


    How to claim sprained ankle compensation

    So, you’ve sprained your ankle after a fall in a shopping centre? Or perhaps it was an accident at work. It might even have happened as you were walking to work and tripped on a damaged paving stone. Whatever has happened, sprained ankle compensation is available for anyone who has been injured in a no-fault accident. So if somebody else is to blame for your accident, we could help you claim the compensation you deserve. Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so there are no upfront legal fees to worry about, making our services affordable for everyone.

    A sprain or a fracture?

    Sometimes it can be difficult to tell whether your ankle has been sprained or is fractured, as the two injuries can present with similar symptoms. If you’ve been hit by a dangerous driver whilst you were crossing the road or fallen off a faulty ladder when working at height at work, it’s important to get your ankle checked out by medical professionals. If it’s broken, you may need to wear a cast for a few weeks to allow it to heal properly.

    A sprained ankle is less serious, but can still be very painful and will affect your mobility for weeks to come, so you may find you’re unable to work or socialise for a while. Claiming sprained ankle compensation is definitely something you should consider if somebody else caused your accident, whether the local council are to blame for your pavement trip or your employer is at fault.

    Time off work

    Time off work is inevitable with an ankle injury, even if you work in a fairly sedentary role. If you’ve sprained your ankle, you may need a few weeks off to recover, which could affect your finances. Paying household bills is an added stress you don’t need when you are off sick, and Accident Advice Helpline’s team of professional personal injury lawyers will take this into account when you get in touch to make a claim.

    Although most ankle injuries heal by themselves, serious ankle sprains could cause ongoing pain and mobility issues which could affect your ability to do your job, if you’re employed in a manual role. Whether your injuries are healing nicely or causing complications, you’re entitled to make a claim for compensation if somebody else is responsible for your accident. You don’t need to decide right now whether you’re ready to claim compensation, as you can call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out more about the claims process and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert advisors.
