    Compensation for a sprained or broken ankle


    Have you ever had a sprained or broken ankle? You wouldn’t think it would be impossible to tell the difference between the two injuries, but when a sprain is severe – graded as three on the scale of one to three of sprains – it is virtually impossible to tell whether you’ve sprained it or broken it. The only way to tell for certain is by having an x-ray to identify any possible broken bones.

    A broken ankle would likely be put in plaster and you would use crutches for several weeks until the bones healed enough for the cast to be taken off. In contrast, a severe sprain would be bandaged and you’d still need crutches, but recovery could still take several weeks, and even months, to heal.

    How much could a person receive for a sprained or broken ankle?

    Sprains and breaks could potentially receive different amounts in compensation depending on how bad the injury was. A Grade 3 sprain – the most severe – will probably receive more than a Grade 1 sprain. A broken ankle would be assessed for compensation, too, if the person who suffered it could confirm someone else was responsible.

    Every case is different, and this is important to recognise. You can use compensation calculators online that are useful in working out what you could get for a sprained or broken ankle. However, they will only ever give a rough idea on what you may potentially receive.

    How can you find out more?

    The thought of claiming compensation through a properly recognised legal procedure can be enough to put some people off doing it – even if they may well receive something. The good news is, Accident Advice Helpline makes life easier for you if you want to get no-obligation advice on what may happen.
