Ankle injuries can be very painful, causing difficulty with mobility and often lingering for a long period of time. Ankle injuries may include sprains, fractures or even a breakage, perhaps caused by a nasty fall or a sporting injury: however you incurred your injury, it is worthwhile looking into making a compensation claim for ankle injuries.
Are ankle injuries eligible for compensation?
Compensation is in place for those who have suffered a personal injury that was not their fault. If someone else was to blame, your accident happened within the past three years and resulted in the need for medical attention, you will likely be entitled to make a claim for ankle injuries. This compensation amount can help recompense for:
- The severity of your injury and length of time you have suffered
- Any expenses resulting from your injury
- Any loss of earnings, such as through inability to work
To check that you are eligible, you can use an online tool such as the 30 second calculator on the Accident Advice Helpline’s website. This will confirm that you are entitled to make a claim, as well as giving an idea of the amount you may be entitled to.
