As if suffering one sprained ankle is not bad enough, if you were unfortunate enough to suffer two sprained ankles at the same time, you have certainly been involved in an unusual accident. Nevertheless, suffering such an injury is not unheard of, and if your injury was caused by somebody else, it is also possible that you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Read on to see how Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you with a no-win, no-fee* claim.
Is it possible to suffer two sprained ankles at the same time?
Sprained ankles are usually caused by slips, trips or falls which could happen almost anywhere – at work, walking down the road, playing a sport, using the stairs, looking around a shop or shopping centre. Usually however, such a fall will only result in one sprained ankle rather than two. So if you suffered two sprained ankles at the same time, perhaps you had a more serious accident such as a fall on an escalator, or maybe you fell over more than once on a slippery surface such as a wet floor or on an icy pavement. The best thing to do is to tell us here at Accident Advice Helpline how your accident was caused so that we can advise you on whether or not to make a claim for compensation.
Who can make a claim?
If your accident happened in the last three years resulting in medical treatment and it was not your fault, you too can qualify for a compensation claim. Sometimes people are unsure whether or not the accident was indeed their own fault, but this is also OK because you can tell us all about it on our freephone number given below. Just because you call us, this does not mean that you have to proceed with a full claim, and we will be able to let you know what is in your best interests.
