Have you broken your ankle after a car accident, an accident at work or a slip, trip or fall in a public place? A broken ankle may not sound like a serious injury, and for the most part, broken ankles heal within six to eight weeks and you can be back on your feet and back at work. But there can be complications that can arise, and you may find you need to take longer off work if this happens to you. At any rate, if you’re wondering, ‘How much is a broken ankle worth?’ then it’s probably time to seek personal injury advice from a specialist solicitor.
Don’t just choose any lawyer to handle your personal injury claim, choose experts like Accident Advice Helpline – we have over 16 years’ experience handling personal injury claims for a wide range of accidents and injuries, so if you have broken your ankle, get in touch with us.
How do I know if I’m eligible to make a claim?
As well as wondering, ‘How much is a broken ankle worth?’ many people find themselves stressing out over the fact that they may or may not be eligible to make a personal injury claim. The simple answer is that there is no real way to know whether or not you’re eligible unless you contact a personal injury lawyer. As a general rule though, if your accident happened in the past three years, if somebody else was to blame and if you suffered injuries that you sought medical treatment for, you have a good chance of being eligible to claim personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline offers confidential, no-obligation advice, so even if you just want to call us to find out if you could claim, you can do so, without any pressure to proceed.
So how much is a broken ankle worth?
You may be wondering why we haven’t answered this question yet, and the answer is simple. There isn’t really any ‘one size fits all’ amount that a broken ankle is worth as all personal injury claims are different. You may have broken your ankle and suffered other injuries, such as a head injury or a sprained wrist. You may have been left with a permanent limp after suffering a severe ankle fracture. The circumstances surrounding each claim are unique, and so for that reason, we handle each and every claim on an individual basis. What this means is that it’s really hard for us to give you an exact figure for what your injury claim is worth. But you could always use the 30-second calculator on our website to get an idea of what you could be entitled to receive.
Call today, don’t delay
Because there’s usually a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, we recommend picking up the phone and calling us as soon as possible after your accident. Just call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile, to find out more.
