If you have sprained your ankle in an accident at work, or a slip, trip or fall in public, did you ever stop to think that you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation?
Sprained ankle treatment
Sprained ankle treatment usually involves a degree of self-care at home, but you may need physiotherapy in the case of a severe sprain, to regain full range of motion and mobility after your accident.
If you decide to find out more about making a personal injury claim after your accident then you may need to seek the services of a personal injury specialist such as Accident Advice Helpline. We have over 16 years’ experience helping people claim compensation for a wide range of different types of injuries, including sprained ankles.
Choosing a personal injury solicitor
Obviously your first priority after an accident is to get sprained ankle treatment and recover from your injuries. But finding a personal injury solicitor to handle your claim for compensation is also important. There is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so it’s a good idea to contact a solicitor for advice as soon as possible after your accident. Even if you have only sustained a minor sprain, you could still claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings if somebody else caused your accident.
So if you have sprained your ankle after an accident at work or tripping over in a public place, Accident Advice Helpline could help you. The advice we offer is provided on a no-obligation basis. This means if you decide not to proceed with a claim at any point, there is no pressure.
How much does it cost to make a claim?
Although the cost of any sprained ankle treatment will usually be covered by the NHS, if you do need physiotherapy or spend money travelling to medical appointments, this is something you can include as part of your claim. The good news is that it won’t cost you anything to claim with Accident Advice Helpline, as our lawyers provide a 100% no-win, no-fee service. You can get in touch with us at any point after your accident for advice and to find out more about making a claim, and we’ll be able to tell you whether you are eligible and answer any questions you have.
Call us today on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to get the ball rolling on your claim, however minor or serious your sprain injury.
