    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Did you suffer a sprained ankle injury at work?

    A sprained ankle injury is not only painful, it can prevent you doing most of the things you’d normally take for granted. If the sprain is a nasty one, you won’t be able to bear weight on it for a few days. Additionally, you’ll find you can’t do daily tasks – and you may not be able to go to work, either.

    It’s rare to sprain an ankle at work, but this type of injury can potentially happen anywhere. As such, you could end up being unable to work for a few days – at least – because of an accident you had while you were at your workplace to begin with.

    Was your sprained ankle injury caused by negligence?

    Trip hazards could easily lead to a sprained ankle if they are not properly dealt with and removed. This means you could end up with considerable pain and discomfort, and it wouldn’t even be your fault.

    Workplaces must be safe to use and move through, and that means adhering to all the health and safety rules in place today. If you find the standards have slipped where you work (very unlikely, but since you are still reading, it is a possibility), you could claim for negligence that caused your ankle injury to begin with.

    Seeking the right advice at the right time

    There is no need to claim compensation immediately following your sprained ankle injury at work. Indeed, you will have more on your mind in coping with your injury and making sure you achieve the best recovery. That’s partly why there is a time limit of three years on compensation claims, since this provides ample time to consider the option of claiming.
