Claiming for a sprain or twist
Experiencing a twist or sprain to a part of your body can be very painful and frustrating. A sprain happens when a joint in the body is stretched or pulled too far, causing some of its fibres to tear or rip, resulting in a lot of pain and upset. Twists and sprains are incredibly common and can happen easily in everyday life as well as when enjoying some sporting activities. Some common types of twists or sprains can occur in the knee, the ankle, the wrist or the thumb.
If you have twisted or sprained a joint, you will be aware of this immediately as the affected area will be extremely painful and begin to swell straight away. Some of the most common effects of a sprain or twist include severe pain, swelling and inflammation, bruising and loss of movement in the affected body part. Damage to your ligament tends to heal over time, but it’s always better to try and not use the damaged part of the body too much as this can cause extra issues with the injury. It could result in having to take time off work which can cause financial issues which could be difficult to deal with on top of the physical pain you are already suffering.
Our trained and professional lawyer in West Drayton understands that the aftermath of an accident, especially one which wasn’t your fault, can be difficult to deal with. Some severe twists and sprains can result in you requiring medical attention. In some cases, medical help can be costly, and again, you may need to take time off work to attend important medical appointments.
