    Compensation for twisting an ankle at work


    That moment after you trip over a box of files somebody has left lying around or slip on a wet floor (where were the warning signs?) at work can be a painful one. Chances are, you might have suffered an injury, and twisting an ankle at work is actually a relatively common injury. Your ankle are made up of tendons and ligaments, and when you twist in an awkward way, these ligaments can stretch and tear, causing a painful injury which may take some time to heal.

    Twisting an ankle at work isn’t always somebody else’s fault – if you’re wearing impractical heels and trip over your own feet, you only have yourself to blame. But if you’ve been injured through somebody else’s negligence, we can help you claim personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline’s team of expert advisors are on hand to offer confidential advice, and there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim when you call us.

    Recovering from your injuries

    When you twist your ankle, it’s likely you’ll suffer a sprain, which can take time to heal and can be incredibly painful. Most sprained ankles recover with some simple self-care and over-the-counter pain relief, but in some cases, medical attention may be needed. If you work in a job where you’re on your feet all day or need to be active, a sprained ankle could mean time off work, putting a dent in your salary. We take this into account when we work out your personal injury settlement, so you’ll be compensated not only for your pain and suffering, but also for any loss of earnings.

    Claiming personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline won’t cost you any upfront fees either, as all our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you can get the compensation you deserve, no matter what your financial situation.

    Should you claim?

    Hearing about personal injury claims on TV can make the whole process seem a bit daunting – what if you have to go to court and face your employer after an accident at work? The good news is that most claims are settled out of court; in fact the majority of claims can be processed over the phone. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping customers claim compensation for a whole range of injuries since 2000, and you could be next in line. Just call our 24/7 freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 today for advice and answers to your questions.
