    Broken Ankles Injuries Claims


    How to find out about broken ankles injuries claims

    In June 1937, William Davey (65) a wayfarer, was admitted to Bideford Hospital suffering from 2 broken ankles and head injuries as a result of an accident near Southcott Gate, on the Bideford – Instow main road.

    Davey was walking in the direction of Bideford with 2 male companions who were pushing handcarts. Davey crossed to the other side of the road to talk to another man. As he went to go back across the road, he was involved in a collision with a car approaching from the direction of Bideford. The driver attempted to avoid Davey but hit him and ended up on a grass verge. Davey was taken to hospital in an ambulance. It appears that Mr Davey had 2 broken ankles because he was not paying due care and attention when crossing the road.

    A 30 second test

    However, if you are in a similar accident which is not your fault and you end up with 2 broken ankles you might want to find out about broken ankles injuries claims. If your accident has been within the past 3 years, you should telephone Accident Advice Helpline without delay. A trained adviser will guide you through a 30 second test which will establish whether you might be able to get compensation for broken ankles injuries claims.

    After that, an online calculator will estimate how much you might get with broken ankles injuries claims if an accident solicitor represents you and wins. This would be on a no win no fee* basis. All of the solicitors who work with Accident Advice Helpline operate on these terms.

    Loss of earnings

    Having 2 broken ankles will mean that you might not be able to go to work or drive. In fact, you are going to be relying on other people to do many things for you. If you have to pay someone to look after you or your children, you might be able to claim compensation for that. You might also be able to claim compensation for your loss of earnings and all the costs associated with travelling to the hospital. Obviously this will not compensate for you missing work or your friends and it won’t compensate for your loss of dignity when people have to look after you. It will help, however, ease the financial burden which is something which should never be overlooked.

    Open Claim Calculator

    If you want to find out if you might be able to get compensation through broken ankles injuries claims you should ring Accident Advice Helpline without delay. It is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The number is 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
