Sometimes we take our mobility for granted, and when an accident happens that prevents us from moving around as we normally do, it can really be a blow to our everyday lives. An injury to the ankle or foot can keep us out of action for quite a while, preventing us from going to work, driving or socialising for example. If you needed to have an ankle injury x-ray because of an accident that was not your fault, it may be possible for you to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and inconvenience.
How did your accident happen?
Accidents can happen in all manner of ways. One of the most common ways people injure their ankles is by tripping over things that should not have been left in the way. This can happen in shops, at work, or simply walking down the street. All businesses and public places should be kept clear of tripping hazards, so if you fell on a hazard that really should not have been there, this may be a case of negligence on someone else’s behalf. If a trip was the cause of your accident and subsequent ankle injury x-ray, why not tell Accident Advice Helpline about it today to see if you can make a claim for compensation?
The results of your ankle injury x-ray
A lot of the time an ankle injury x-ray is simply a precaution to make sure nothing is broken. Sprained or twisted ankles are far more common than fractures, breaks and dislocations, but it is always a good idea to rule these more serious injuries out if you have to visit a hospital for your injury. Regardless, if your injury prevented you from working or going about your normal life, it does not matter if your ankle was actually broken or not. Different compensation amounts are paid for different severities of injury, meaning you can often still make a claim even if your injury was not extremely serious.
