If you’ve ever sprained or fractured your ankle, you’ll know that painful ankle injuries can be no laughing matter. Injuries to your ankle can take time to heal and may affect your ability to walk or do your job. Complications could mean the healing process takes even longer, and you might need medical care to recover from your injuries.
Whilst taking time off work might seem like a nice idea, the loss of earnings you’ll experience can seriously impact you and your family financially, which is why Accident Advice Helpline is here to help. We can help you claim personal injury compensation if somebody else is to blame for your accident and our team has years of experience specialising in personal injury law.
Strain, sprain or fracture?
You’ll probably need to be medically assessed after your accident, to determine the extent of your injury, and whether it’s a strain, sprain or fracture will affect the type of treatment needed. Most sprains recover with some self-care and painkillers, but medical treatment may be required for more serious, painful ankle injuries. Once you’re feeling a bit better, it’s a good idea to think about what caused your accident – is somebody else to blame?
If you’ve broken your ankle after a fall from height at work or tripped on a damaged pavement and suffered a sprain, it could be that somebody else is liable, which means you could claim personal injury compensation for your pain and suffering. Find out right now how much compensation you could claim by taking the 30-second test on our website, or call our expert advisors for confidential, no-obligation advice.
