    Compensation for injuries causing walking difficulties


    It doesn’t matter if you have a car or enjoy biking or cycling – you’ll no doubt do a lot of walking in the average day as well. Some people enjoy walking more than others but in every case we all take this ability for granted. We don’t imagine that one day we might suffer injuries causing walking difficulties from that moment on.

    Any leg or foot injury has the potential to cause such difficulties. However, they normally only last for a period of time until healing is complete. If this isn’t the case you might find you have trouble walking for the foreseeable future. In these cases people sometimes get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to consider whether there is a chance of claiming compensation.

    How might injuries causing walking difficulties occur?

    These injuries could happen via fairly simple means, such as tripping in a pothole on the pavement. Conversely they might be sustained during a car accident or in a situation at work that someone else allowed to happen.

    If you normally walk a reasonable distance during the average day, you’ll find it a major shock to suddenly realise you cannot walk that far any more. Some injuries never fully heal and may potentially cause you pain and discomfort. As such you might be limited to walking with a stick or crutch, and even then you may not be able to walk that far.

    Finding out the cause of such injuries

    Of course you will know how you came to suffer such injuries in the first place. However, you might end up wondering whether you were to blame for the injuries or whether they occurred because of the actions taken by another person. If someone else was negligent and they allowed the accident to happen, they would be responsible for your injuries.
