Accident Advice Helpline can start your leg injury compensation claim for you
A bruise, cut, or scratch doesn’t necessarily sound like a serious injury, but some leg injuries can lead to complications and further problems which may require you to claim leg injury compensation.
There are various accidents that cause leg injuries such as falls from heights (ladders, walls, uneven pavements), road traffic accidents (as a passenger, driver or pedestrian) and accidents at work or while playing a sport. All of these accidents can cause leg injuries but also damage such as concussion and broken bones.
One of the worst forms of minor leg injuries can be severe bruising. Severe bruising can cause the capillaries under the skin to break, which allows blood to flow under and into the skin tissue and this is what makes the red and purple colour under the skin. While these aren’t too dangerous, internal bruising is certainly something to worry about when involved in an accident.
Accident Advice Helpline can fight your leg injury compensation claim if you have had internal bruising which has led to further health implications.
Injuries to the legs
if you think you should be seeking compensation for bruised legs, you should talk to us at Accident Advice Helpline. We are specialists in personal injury compensation and we can advise you whether your claim for compensation for bruised legs could be eligible to make. Of course, as mentioned above, you may have other injuries too. The point is that if the accident was due to someone else’s action or negligence you could have a valid claim.
Sprained leg injuries can be serious, and there are different types of sprains, from a minor tear to a ligament to complete rupture, and each type will take a different amount of time to heal – depending on a variety of things such as your level of fitness and the seriousness of the accident.
A sprain is where you damage your ligament, and is often caused by bracing yourself when falling; the most common areas to sprain are your wrist or ankle.
