Do you have a sprained ankle and foot? If so, you’ll know this can be uncomfortable and painful to go through and to recover from. Sprains usually occur when someone turns their foot over to one side. This can happen at any time, but walking on uneven ground or running on a similar surface is generally the way people do it. It’s also possible to suffer this injury if you fall in some manner and land awkwardly.
While it makes sense to focus on your injury to begin with, so you can see for certain what you have done, it also makes sense to consider whether you were simply unlucky in sustaining the injury, or whether you were hurt because a third party was negligent. If the latter proves to be true, you should get advice about claiming compensation.
How much compensation might you receive for a sprained ankle and foot?
This depends on what happened. Not all sprains are equal, because some are only mild and some are much worse. The length of time required to heal will be noted, as will the medical evidence gleaned from your hospital visit, or a visit to your GP.
For a claim to succeed, you must have proof of negligence. This means you must prove a third party should have taken steps to reduce the odds of anyone being injured like you were. This might relate to an employer, whoever was responsible for maintaining or taking care of a shop or other public location, or anything like this.
