Injury in Horncastle occupational claim – assessment details for an ankle injury

Many injury in Horncastle occupational claims begin with a trip to the local Accident and Emergency Department. You may be taken here in an ambulance or a friend or family member may take you in their car.

Once you are seen by a doctor they will enquire about your levels of pain and may give you something to control the pain levels. This may be gas and air or you may be given some pain relief directly into your blood stream. Then you will have a physical examination where the doctor will assess the injury visually (by looking at it) and may need to feel around the ankle area.

If a broken ankle is suspected then you will need to have some X-rays taken so that the doctor can decide on the best course of treatment.

Injury claim solicitor in Horncastle – treatment details for an ankle injury

In the worst breaks, called compound fractures, the bones are so badly broken that they are sticking out of the skin and an operation will be needed to put them back in place. Surgery is also needed for some other serious fractures where the bones have moved but are not actually sticking out through the skin. Metal pins and plates may be inserted into or next to the bones to keep them in position whilst they are healing. You may have to have further operations to remove the pins and plates at a later date or they may be left in.

In less serious breaks the bones can be moved back into place without a need for an operation. This could be carried out in the Accident and Emergency Department and would not need a general anaesthetic. You would be given a sedative and some pain killers to make sure that the procedure was not too uncomfortable.

It is usual to encase the injured ankle in plaster and this means that you cannot put weight on the ankle and you cannot drive. This is when the injury starts to affect your normal everyday life and may end up costing you money. You may lose money if you cannot work – there would be a loss of wages. You may also end up having to pay for extra childcare if you are not physically able to look after your young children by yourself. You may be able to claim for these as part of your injury in Horncastle broken ankle claim and you can discuss this with your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury lawyer.
