A fractured ankle and using our injury lawyer in Theydon Bois
A fractured ankle is a common injury for people to suffer. The words fractures and breaks mean the same, there is no difference at all between the two. Fracture is the word that the medical profession uses to describe all cracks, breaks and crushes to bones. If you think that your ankle is broken then you should go straight to your local hospital, so they can give you an X ray to establish if there is a break, and start to treat you if there is.
When you are at home, resting your foot, you may start to think about compensation for the suffering you have been caused, and contacting Accident Advice Helpline is the best thing to do.
How ankles get broken
The most common cause for a fractured ankle is a sudden impact or some form of twisting from a fall. Your ankle bone can easily become fractured, and sometimes you may not even realise that you have damaged the bone – you could just be wondering why it is so painful.
You should go to your local A & E to get it checked out, as not having the correct treatment could make the injury worse. Depending on how serious your injury is, they can then decide the best way to treat it.
