Ankle injury compensation claims


Ankle Injury Compensation Claims

Every year, Accident Advice Helpline helps a large number of claimants with ankle injuries that were not their fault.

What are the reasons for ankle injury compensation claims?

Ankle injuries, including fractures and strains, occur in many environments but the majority of ankle injury claims arise after an accident at work, from a road traffic accident or from a slip, trip or fall that was not the claimant’s fault.

Three bones form the complex and sophisticated mechanism that is the ankle joint. Injuries occur when these bones and their connecting cartilage and ligaments are forced into an incorrect position during an accident.

Uneven surfaces are a major cause of ankle injuries and ankle injury claims. During an accident, or if someone walks on an uneven surface, the ankle joint can roll or be twisted out of its normal position causing damage and pain.

Accidents at work

Many ankle injury claims arise after an accident at work. Employers have a duty of care to their employees and that includes ensuring reasonable steps have been taken to reduce risks in the working environment. The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 require employers to ensure that floors are suitable, in good condition and free from obstructions. People must also be able to move around the workplace safely.

Workplace slips and trips that may result in ankle injuries include:

• Uneven floor surfaces
• Unsuitable floor coverings
• Wet floors
• Changes in levels
• Trailing cables
• Poor lighting
• Poor housekeeping.

If your ankle injury was the result of one of the above, contact Accident Advice Helpline immediately to find out if you could be eligible for personal injury compensation.

Their freephone advice line is answered 24-hours a day and claimants can discuss their situation in confidence without obligation to proceed on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.

Road traffic accidents

Ankle injuries can occur during the force of a road traffic accident. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, Accident Advice Helpline will be happy to let you know if you are able to make a claim.

Slips, trips and falls in public places

If you slipped, tripped or fell in a public place or venue because of an uneven floor surface or other hazard, you may also be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Just contact Accident Advice Helpline or take their 30 Second Test.
