Are you making a negligence claim in Worcestershire after suffering a broken ankle?
Although suffering any type of broken bone or fracture is painful, suffering a broken ankle can be particularly frustrating. As this type of break isn’t always the easiest to fix, you may even need to undergo surgery in order to repair the damage. Once this treatment has been carried out, it’s likely that you will have to wear a cast or a protective boot over the area whilst it heals. Although this can be frustrating, it can help to protect the area and it can ensure that your bones heal properly.
When this type of injury occurs, it can affect your day-to-day life significantly. Although most people do go on to make a full recovery, you may be incapacitated for weeks or months whilst the injury heals. For example, you won’t be able to play sports, or go to the gym and you may need to use crutches just to get around. Although you won’t be able to drive, many people also find it difficult to use public transport to get around whilst on crutches so you may rely on friends and family to get out and about.
Whilst you’re recovering from this type of injury, you may it difficult to work. Providing your doctors provide the right documentation, you could potentially be signed off work throughout your whole recovery period. Although this may be appropriate for employees receiving sick pay, if you aren’t eligible to receive sick pay, or you only receive sick pay at a lower rate than your normal income, this can be worrying.
Whilst you may need to focus on your health, dealing with an unexpected drop in income can be difficult and you may struggle financially. If you’re concerned that your injuries will affect your finances, there may be steps that you can take to stop this happening.
