A fractured ankle can cause a great deal of upset and pain
Many of us are particularly vulnerable to a fractured ankle because we use them every time we walk, skip, run or jump. The movement we put our bodies through every day can cause a lot of stress and strain on our ankles. You could be entitled to make a claim for a fractured ankle if your injury was caused in an accident which was not your fault.
Some fractured ankle injuries can be long lasting and incredibly painful. A fractured ankle often never properly heals and you may require further medical assistance for years on end. When you ask for help with your claim at Accident Advice Helpline, the professional lawyers we provide you with will take into consideration all aspects of your claim.
Get your deserved compensation
There are various places where an ankle injury may take place, but one of the most common is in the workplace. This may be because it’s too easy to trip over or drop heavy equipment. The most common workplaces in which this may happen are factories, kitchens and building sites. People may also sprain or fracture their ankles by falling, tripping or slipping in the street, maybe by tripping on a poorly maintained pavement.

Much like any injury you endure, the first thing to do is visit a doctor or be seen by a medical professional. That way, you will be able to understand the extent of the damage immediately and whether any treatment or ankle surgery will be necessary.
