Lower body injuries


Lower body injuries could include injuries to your feet, legs, hips, ankles, lower back or spine, and they are often the result of a slip, trip or fall or a road traffic accident, although you could also be injured whilst taking part in sporting activities or in an accident at work. Activities such as skiing and snowboarding often lead to ankle and knee injuries, whilst in a slip or trip you could fracture your hip or your ankle, or suffer an injury to your lower back or spine if you fall from height.

The good news is that making a claim for these types of injuries isn’t generally too complicated. Provided it has been three years or less since your accident you could find you’re eligible to make a personal injury claim, however you have been injured.

Who’s responsible for your accident?

It could be that your employer is responsible for your accident at work, if they have been negligent. For example if you have suffered a back injury after falling from faulty scaffolding, they could be held liable. If you’re injured in a public place such as in a shopping centre, the management could be held responsible for your accident and ordered to pay you compensation. You don’t need to have suffered life-changing injuries in order to claim personal injury compensation.

Even if you have fractured your ankle or suffered a back injury after a slip, trip or fall, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries and loss of earnings. If you need medical treatment, your settlement can often cover the cost of this, and it’s a good idea to get in touch with us as soon as possible after your accident, if you have suffered lower body injuries.
