Playing sports comes with risks that everybody agrees to when they take part, and you have to accept the fact that you could be injured whilst playing football, rugby or any other type of sport. But what happens if you suffer a sprained ankle in football that was somebody else’s fault? Your child could be injured whilst taking part in football practice if the coach is negligent, or you yourself could be injured if you trip on uneven ground or are injured by faulty equipment, such as hired football boots.
If something like this has happened to you then it can be hard to know where to turn. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience helping people claim compensation for sports injuries such as sprained ankles, and we can help you to get the compensation you are entitled to.
How has your sprained ankle in football injury affected your life?
If you’re considering making a claim after suffering a sprained ankle in football, it’s important to think about how your injury has affected your life. For most people, a sprained ankle will heal within six to eight weeks, but during that time you will be unable to play football (or other sports), drive or possibly even go to work, depending on your job. If you’ve taken time off work after spraining your ankle playing sports, your finances could be affected which could make paying your household bills difficult.
A sprained ankle injury can be more complicated than it seems too, and a serious sprain may require physiotherapy and more time off work to recover. Being unable to drive can affect your quality of life, and it may take some time before you regain full use of your ankle.
How does Accident Advice Helpline work out personal injury settlements?
We take into account a number of different factors when working out personal injury settlements for our customers. Each claim is handled on an individual basis, so we’ll look at how your accident happened and who is to blame, how serious your injuries are, what treatment you have received (or will receive in future) and how your injuries have affected your life. We’ll also take into account any financial losses you’ve suffered after your accident.
This helps us to work out a bespoke personal injury settlement – but for a rough idea of what you could be entitled to receive, you can take the 30-second test on our website. Then give us a call on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to see if you have a viable claim.
