If you have sprained your ankle then you’ll know that this relatively minor injury can be debilitating and painful. A sprained ankle can prevent you from taking part in activities as well as going to work and earning a living, but there is some good news. If your ankle injury was caused by somebody else’s negligence then you could claim compensation for your injuries and loss of earnings. Taking sprained ankle pictures could provide helpful evidence when it comes to making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline, although we will usually also need to liaise with medical professionals for a copy of your medical report.
Do I need sprained ankle pictures to make a claim?
Whilst sprained ankle pictures of your injury are not essential in order to claim personal injury compensation, they could increase the chances of your claim being successful. Having photographic evidence of your injuries is an excellent way to start your claim for compensation. However a medical report prepared by the professional(s) responsible for your treatment will suffice if you are unable to take pictures of your injuries.
There’s no need to worry about any of this if you decide to make a claim though – you can get in touch with a personal injury lawyer who will gather evidence in support of your claim. Whether you’ve suffered a minor ankle injury or a more serious injury, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
