Recovering from a sprained ankle can take time and if you need to take that time off work for sprained ankle rehab, it can end up costing you money. There is nothing worse than worrying about your finances when you should be focusing on getting better after an accident – it’s simply a worry that nobody needs. If your family’s finances are suffering after you were injured in an accident caused by somebody else, then claiming personal injury compensation is definitely an option that’s open to you. You could be entitled to compensation for your loss of earnings and other financial losses, as well as your pain and suffering.
How long does sprained ankle rehab take?
Sprained ankle rehab can take anywhere from a few days to several months, depending on the severity of your sprain. If you’ve suffered a Grade 3 sprain, which involves serious ligament damage, you could be out of action for at least a couple of months, whereas a more minor Grade 1 sprain could heal in a week or two. During the recovery period it is important not to carry out too many strenuous activities, which for many people means taking at least some time off work is a given.
Even a few weeks off work can seriously affect your pay packet, so if you are struggling to cover your household expenses after your accident, you could get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to see if you could make a 100% no-win, no-fee* personal injury claim. That means there are no upfront fees to worry about, making claiming affordable for everyone.
