    Did you know that you can claim compensation for a sprained ankle in Nottingham?

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we see hundreds of sprained ankle claims each year coming from Nottingham and other busy city centres.

    Ankle sprains are commonly caused by a sudden sideways movement of your ankle and lead to a number of painful side-effects. Movements such as twisting, turning and rolling are the cause of a sprained ankle and are usually the result of trips and falls caused by uneven pathways and poor public highway management.

    What is worse is that most people don’t realise that they can claim compensation for their personal injury in Nottingham so they continue to suffer in silence and be burdened by their injury.

    How to tell if you have a sprained ankle

    Usually a sprained ankle will present with the following symptoms:

    • Bruising
    • Swelling
    • Severe sensitivity when the area is touched
    • Warmth and redness
    • Decreased mobility

    If you think you have sprained your ankle, we urge you to go to your local doctor or hospital as soon as you can to get medical attention.

    Depending on the severity of the injury or the number of ligaments that have been damaged, each sprain can be classified from mild to severe. There are three grades of a sprained ankle which is useful when clarifying the severity of your injury.

    The grades are as follows:

    Grade 1 is the mildest damage to a ligament or ligaments without instability of the affected joint.
    Grade 2 is when there a partial tear to the ligament, in which it is stretched to the point that it becomes loose.
    Grade 3 is the most severe type of sprained ankle and is a complete tear of a ligament, causing instability of the joint.

    Once you have sought medical attention and have a firm diagnosis and you believe the accident was not your own fault then please call us at Accident Advice Helpline to start the process of claiming for your personal injury in Nottingham. Even if you are not sure if it was your fault or not, please call us anyway so that we can clarify this for you.
