Sprained ankles can cause significant swelling and bruising, which can be unsightly and painful. It’s likely you’ll take around six to eight weeks to heal from a sprained ankle, but the recovery period could be longer if you have suffered a severe sprain. If you were injured in an accident caused by somebody else, then you might want to take some sprained ankle bruising pictures if you’re considering making a claim for personal injury compensation. This can come in handy if you later decide to make a claim, but is not essential. Accident Advice Helpline has handled hundreds of claims for sprained ankles and wrists and we can help you to get the compensation you are entitled to.
Do I need sprained ankle bruising pictures to make a personal injury claim?
Whilst sprained ankle bruising pictures are not essential if you want to make a personal injury claim, they can come in handy as evidence for making a claim. Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers will get in touch with medical professionals involved in your treatment and liaise with them, creating a report that will form evidence for your claim.
We’ll take into account how your sprained ankle injury has affected your life, which can include compensation for taking time off work and loss of earnings, as well as the cost of medication (painkillers) and travel to and from medical appointments. You could receive a settlement which helps you out financially after your accident at a difficult time and makes life a little easier until you are ready to return to work.
