    Lawyer in Fairlight

    Fairlight is the name of a village in East Sussex. It is on the south coastal section of the county, and the county itself is in the far south-eastern corner of England. Since this is a village, you would not expect it to have a large population. Indeed, the parish area was found to accommodate 1,670 people at the time of the most recent census in 2011.

    Personal injuries happen to us all from time to time and may have left you looking for a lawyer in Fairlight. They’re a part of life, although we would hope not to have too many of them if possible. However, while we might be to blame for some of our injuries, there are occasions when someone else might have caused them to happen. This is the type of scenario whereby you might want some legal advice.

    Coping with a sprained ankle

    Ankle sprains are very common and can happen simply by walking across uneven ground that causes you to turn your ankle over to one side. Usually, you sprain the ligaments and soft tissues on the outside of your ankle, although it is technically possible to turn your ankle the other way and injure the soft tissues on the inside instead. In either case, you should get it checked and x-rayed to determine whether your injury is indeed a sprain, or whether you have broken your ankle. Severe sprains can mimic the symptoms suffered in a broken ankle, which is why the x-ray is required.

    That medical evidence will also be useful if you end up making a compensation claim following an ankle injury like this. It will only be possible to claim if you are able to prove someone else caused that sprain to occur. They don’t need to have been present at the time for this to be the case. For example, local councils are responsible for maintaining pavements and roads. If your sprain happened because you turned your ankle over on an uneven paving stone, no one else would be present for that, yet the blame could potentially lie with whoever should have repaired it.

    Could a lawyer in Fairlight help you claim for a sprained ankle?

    If you were to find a personal injury lawyer in Fairlight, you could ask them about the situation that led you to break your ankle. But if you are currently recovering from this injury (or any other injury caused in an accident you did not cause), there is an easier way to get some advice.
