Never underestimate sprained ankle pain – for many people a serious sprain can be as painful as an ankle fracture; and the symptoms can be similar too. If you’re experiencing what you think is sprained ankle pain then it is vital to see a medical professional and have your injuries diagnosed. It may be that you have actually fractured your ankle or damaged it in some other way. If you have sustained a serious sprain then you may need to wear a brace or cast for a few weeks to support the bones and ligaments and help them to heal faster.
Compensation for sprained ankle pain
Although a minor ankle sprain isn’t a life-changing injury, it can still cause pain and suffering, and you may be unable to take part in your usual activities and sports, as well as unable to go to work and earn a living. So what can you do if you sprained your ankle as a result of somebody else’s negligence? You could make a claim for personal injury compensation and receive compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
It’s actually fairly easy to make a claim, and most claims can be processed in full over the phone, so it’s unlikely you’ll need to go to court. Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you’re entitled to on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, so you don’t need to worry about expensive upfront legal fees.
Should you make a claim?
Not everybody who sprains their ankle will make a successful claim for personal injury compensation. In fact, some people won’t claim at all and will miss out on the opportunity to receive financial compensation for their injuries. Making a claim can help you out if you are struggling financially after your accident, and you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence if somebody else caused your accident. If you need advice or have any questions about making a claim, then Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you.
