Have you suffered a twisted or sprained ankle?
Unfortunately, a sprained ankle is an extremely common type of injury and it can occur in numerous ways. Often, if people trip or fall awkwardly, they can sustain ankle injuries and they may be in a significant amount of pain as a result.
If you suspect that you have sustained this type of injury, it’s important to seek medical help quickly. Although a sprained ankle isn’t normally too serious, it should be checked over by a medical processional to ensure that nothing is broken or fractured.
Whilst most people make a fairly quick recovery from this type of injury, you may be required to rest for a period of time. If you’re having trouble walking or placing weight on the affected area, you may be given crutches and painkillers to help make you more comfortable.
In addition to taking care of your health, obtaining medical help quickly could also ensure that you’re able to make a claim for compensation if you decide to take legal action at a later date.
Could you make a claim with an experienced law firm in South Derbyshire?
Although people are often quick to assume that you must have been seriously hurt in order to make a compensation claim, this isn’t always true. If you were injured because of someone or something else and you obtained medical help, you should be able to make a claim for almost any type of injury.
Whilst your injury may not have been life-threatening, you were still hurt because of the actions of another person and they should be held responsible. If you’ve been unable to work or carry out your daily activities because of your injury, you should be compensated for this so you should seriously consider making a claim with an experienced law firm in South Derbyshire.
