Types of leg injury
Leg injuries encompass a diverse number of injuries that can all be eligible for a leg injury claim. The most common form of leg injury is a simple sprain caused by a trip or fall. A sprain will usually heal quickly; however, it can still cause pain and hinder your mobility for several days. If your trip or fall was the result of poor signage, poor maintenance or a criminal activity, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a leg injury claim today.
In the case of more serious falls and accidents, it is possible to suffer torn ligaments or dislocation of joints. This sort of injury can take a long time to heal, causing pain and mobility limitations for an extended period. In many cases it may even limit your ability to work. In the case of the worst accidents, it is possible to suffer fractures anywhere in the leg; in simple cases these will heal in time but in serious cases they may never fully heal. Such cases can lead to lifelong pain and limitations, paralysis, or even amputation.
The friendly advisors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to process a leg injury claim to ease the financial devastation of loss of earnings and medical treatment. By connecting you with a specialised solicitor, the advisors ensure that your claim is handled professionally and efficiently to minimise disruption to your life.
Causes of leg injury
Leg injuries can result from innumerable causes. In many causes a slip, trip or strain from heavy lifting can be caused in the workplace and lead to an assortment of minor leg injuries, which Accident Advice Helpline can help you to claim for.

Even if your injuries were the result of a criminal attack, sporting activity or car crash, you may be able to claim.
