    What does sprained ankle Grade 2 mean?


    If you have suffered a sprained ankle in an accident, you’ll normally find that your injury is classified as either a Grade 1, Grade 2 or Grade 3 sprain. Grade 3 sprains are the most serious type of injury, involving a complete tear of the ligament and instability in the joint. The good news is that a Grade 2 sprain, although not as minor as a Grade 1 sprain, is still considered a fairly minor injury. A sprained ankle Grade 2 involves a partial ligament tear, and you can expect this to take a few months to heal fully. Treatment for a sprained ankle is usually completed at home, with PRICE therapy:

    • Protection
    • Rest
    • Ice
    • Compression
    • Elevation

    Ensuring that you rest your ankle, ice it and keep it elevated as much as possible will reduce your healing time, meaning that you can get back to work and other activities much sooner.

    How did you suffer a sprained ankle Grade 2?

    It might be that you suffered a sprained ankle Grade 2 after a slip or trip in a public place. For example if you caught your heel in damaged flooring in a shopping centre and fell, or slipped on food which had been spilt in a supermarket aisle, you could find yourself eligible to make a personal injury claim. Other common causes of sprained ankles are falls from height – for example if you have fallen downstairs after tripping on a broken step, you could suffer a Grade 2 sprain. Finding out whether you could make a personal injury claim is a good idea – there is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, and Accident Advice Helpline will be able to tell you whether or not you have a viable claim.

    Your right to claim
