A sprained ankle will usually heal nicely by itself within a couple of months, but sprained ankle aches and pains can go on for some time, even after the ankle has healed. If your life has been affected by sprained ankle aches – for example if you’re unable to go to work or live your life to the full – then you could find you’re able to make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your accident. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience helping people claim compensation for sprained ankles, and we are here to make sure anybody who has been injured in an accident caused by somebody else’s negligence gets the compensation they are entitled to.
How have your sprained ankle aches affected your life?
Sprained ankle aches and pains may mean that you need to see a pain management specialist or even a physiotherapist for treatment, if they are ongoing. If you are unable to go to work or live your life to the full then you may be able to claim compensation for your pain and suffering. It might be that you are experiencing sprained ankle aches a few weeks after your injuries, or it could be an ongoing issue that you have been experiencing for months or even years.
When you make a personal injury claim, Accident Advice Helpline will take this into account and the amount of compensation you receive will reflect this. Although aches and pains after a sprain are fairly common, serious pains can be debilitating and can affect your quality of life, and you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence if this is the case.
No-win, no-fee claims
Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, which means that even if you have been affected financially after your accident, you can afford to make a claim with us. If you’re suffering from aches and pains several years after your accident, it may still be possible to claim compensation, as there’s a three-year time limit in place.

You can do this by calling us on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to see if you have a viable claim. Our expert advisors can offer advice on a no-obligation basis, so you have nothing to lose by picking up the phone and getting in touch with us.
