Do you have a foot injury or ankle injury?
If you suffer an accident through no fault of your own, and this causes a foot injury, the first step for recovery is to see a medical professional, have your injury diagnosed and get pain relief.
It can cost time and money to put things right. Taking periods off work may make it difficult to keep up with mortgage, rent or household bills. You might also need to depend on someone else to help you. Claiming compensation for loss of earnings could enable you and your family to cope.

Foot and ankle injuries occur in many different ways.
Ankle injuries can happen when the ankle joint gets twisted out of its normal position. Strains, sprains and fractures can arise from sports injuries, slips, trips and falls, accidents at work, and road accidents. Road users such as cyclists and motorcyclists, who lack the protection of those in vehicles, are especially vulnerable to foot and ankle injuries.
If you break a bone in your foot, you may not be able to put any weight on it, and might suffer bruising and swelling. Other injuries can include broken toes, burns and crush injuries.
Some people recover fully from a foot or ankle injury in a short time, but other injuries have long-lasting effects. You may need crutches, or find yourself limited in daily tasks. Some people cannot work, drive, or walk any great distance. You may even be left with a permanent limp.
Why claim for a foot or ankle injury?
When you have an accident, you need the right help, tailored to your situation.
If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences, or chase around trying to find the right specialist help.
With foot and ankle injuries that reduce mobility and cause continuing pain, you may not be able to work. This may put you under pressure financially.
Making a claim for compensation might seem like extra hassle, but compensation can really help to ease the stress, covering medical costs, loss of earnings, housing and travel costs, and continuing care. If you suffer a serious foot injury or damage your ankles, compensation can help you adapt your home, car and way of life.

- Your pain and suffering
- The severity of your injury
- The treatment you need after your accident

Can you make a claim for feet and ankle injuries?
You may be able to claim if you can answer ‘yes’ to the following:
- Did your accident leave you injured?
- Was your accident somebody else’s fault?
- Did your accident happen in the last three years?
In the workplace, all employers have a duty of care to ensure people are able to do their jobs safely. In addition, owners of public places such as shops, pubs and restaurants have a responsibility to keep you safe –preventing spillages and trip hazards, for example. If an employer or owner fails to follow regulations and if this leads to your injury, you may be able to make a claim.
