    Claiming for a Grade 2 sprained ankle


    A Grade 2 sprained ankle is diagnosed when you have torn some of the fibres in the ligaments – usually on the outside of your ankle. If no tear had occurred, you would be confirmed as having a Grade 1 sprain. A Grade 3 sprain is a complete tear, so while you have a painful injury, your sprained ankle could have been worse.

    The important thing is to confirm the nature of your injury and how to treat it. This is always important, of course, but if you know or think someone else might have led to your injury occurring, seeing a medical professional can pay dividends further down the line as well.

    What could you claim for a Grade 2 sprained ankle?

    The amount of any individual claim will be decided as per the facts of that individual case. For example, how long did it take you to recover from your sprained ankle? A Grade 2 sprain generally takes around four to six weeks to recover from. However, different people may experience a different recovery, with some healing a lot faster and with no lasting effects compared to others.

    Of course, any claim you make will also consider any other injuries you might potentially have suffered at the same time. For example, if you sprain your ankle, you are likely to lose your balance and fall over. If you are not hurt anywhere else and your claim does succeed, you will be compensated for the ankle injury alone. Conversely, if you injure your hands or elbows, or you suffer facial injuries, these too will be considered as part of your overall claim. That means your compensation will be different to the amount you may potentially have got if you only had the sprain to deal with.
