Suffering an ankle injury can be a very painful experience, and with the added inconvenience of decreased mobility, it can also be very disruptive to your daily life. If you walk to work, are employed in manual labour or need to be physically mobile for any reason, an ankle injury may result in loss of earnings or increased travel expenses. It’s therefore important to check your eligibility to claim for compensation.
Am I eligible for an ankle injury compensation payment?
If your injury was someone else’s fault, occurred within the past three years and resulted in the need for medical attention from your GP or local A&E, for example, then you may be entitled to make a claim. Your ankle injury may have happened as a result of:
- A construction accident
- A fall at work
- Road traffic accident
- A trip on broken pavement
- A health and safety breach
To check your eligibility for your ankle injury compensation payment, you can use online tools such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second calculator, which asks a few simple questions and not only confirms if you are entitled to make a claim, but also returns an approximate compensation amount. This means that you will be able to progress your claim with a ballpark figure in mind; enabling you to successfully manage your own expectations.
