If you are trying to find out about how to claim compensation for a sprained ankle in the UK, chances are you have recently suffered an injury and you believe it was not your fault. If your accident happened in the last three years and you received medical treatment for your sprained ankle, there is a very good chance you could make a claim if it can be shown that the negligence of another party was responsible.
How are sprained ankles caused?
Tripping over an unseen hazard is how most sprained ankles are caused. The damage is done when the ankle buckles meaning that your weight is put on the ankle rather than the foot. Ankles are not meant to bear weight in this way, and so muscle and ligament damage can be caused. Sprained ankles are also caused by sporting accidents, many of which could have been avoided with proper health and safety precautions. You may also have suffered a sprained ankle in the UK by slipping on an icy or polished surface, or perhaps by falling down unmaintained steps or stairs.
