A sprained ankle can often have similar symptoms to a broken ankle, which is why it’s so important to get a proper medical diagnosis. Since 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people claim compensation for accidents at work and in public places. One of the most common questions we get asked is, ‘I sprained my ankle, can I claim personal injury compensation?’ The answer is quite often yes, if somebody else is to blame for your accident.
If you have tripped over trailing cables whilst working in an office and sprained your ankle, or hurt your ankle in a road traffic accident caused by somebody else, you could make a 100% no-win, no-fee claim with Accident Advice Helpline, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
I sprained my ankle, how much compensation could I get?
One of the other most common questions we hear is, ‘I sprained my ankle, how much compensation could I get?’ There’s no one answer to this question, as Accident Advice Helpline processes all claims on an individual basis. In fact there are a number of things to take into account when working out your personal injury settlement. We’ll ask you about your injuries, and how severe they are, but we’ll also consider things like whether your earnings have been affected after your accident.
So if you have sprained your ankle after a slip or trip and needed to take a few weeks off work to recover, you could receive compensation for loss of earnings. You could get an idea of how much compensation you could claim by taking the 30-second test on our website right now.
Is my claim likely to be successful?
There are people who suffer a sprained ankle after a trip or a road traffic accident who don’t claim compensation simply because they think their claim will be unsuccessful, or because they are worried their injuries are not severe enough. Provided you have sought medical attention for your sprain, you’re eligible to claim compensation – assuming somebody else caused your accident. We can help you to get the compensation you’re entitled to, and because we have more than 16 years’ experience, our track record of success is excellent.
To find out more about making a claim and see if you are eligible, you can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) today. Our advisors are able to offer confidential advice, and there is no obligation to go ahead with a claim, should you change your mind at any point.
