Sharnbrook is one of several villages in Bedfordshire. It is within the borough of Bedford, and had a population of 2,293 at the last census. It is in the northern section of Bedfordshire. While it has quite a large population for a village (especially since some villages have just a few hundred residents), it may still prove problematic to find a personal injury lawyer in Sharnbrook.
No one ever thinks of contacting someone like this unless they have a personal injury that might have been caused by someone else. Slips, trips, and falls sometimes lead to personal injury claims being put forward for a range of injuries. Sprained ankles are one such injury that can result from such accidents. Sometimes, a sprain could simply be bad luck, or it could be your fault for not being more careful with your footing. But how can you tell if you were to blame, or if someone else was? We’ll find out more here as you read on.
Dealing with a sprained ankle
Sprained ankles are painful and can result in the injured person not being able to bear weight on the affected ankle for several days or weeks while it heals. They are graded in three types, and the most severe type can present in much the same way a broken bone can. This is why it is always very important to get a suspected sprain seen to and x-rayed, as this is the one sure way of figuring out whether a break has indeed occurred, or whether the soft tissues have been damaged and torn.
The recovery time for a sprained ankle could range from several days for a minor sprain, to several weeks for a major one. It is very easy to twist your ankle and suffer a sprain, but in some cases, people do this because of negligence – not their negligence, but that of someone else. Tripping in a pothole that should have been repaired, or falling down a set of unsafe stairs, for example, could both be ways this might potentially happen.
