What types of accidents are eligible for compensation?
If your accident happened in the last three years, was caused by another person or organisation and resulted in injuries needing medical attention, then you will likely be able to make a claim. The accidents which may be included are:
- Road traffic accidents;
- Holiday accidents;
- Slips, trips and falls; and
- Accidents at work.
Any of these accidents may result in an ankle injury, perhaps including:
- Ligament sprains;
- Fractures; and
- Tendon tears.
An ankle injury may affect your mobility and cause you a great deal of pain. Depending on your injury type, your doctor will likely recommend rest and a course of painkillers, and perhaps a referral to a specialist.
To check your eligibility to make a claim, you should use the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. This will also provide you with an estimated compensation amount if you are entitled to make a claim, offering you a ballpark figure to work with as you proceed with your claim. Following your use of the calculator, an Accident Advice Helpline advisor will be in touch to offer further guidance.
