Claiming for a serious ankle fracture
No matter how carefully you watch your step, you never know what might be around the corner. One common incident that can unexpectedly occur is a serious ankle fracture, a painful injury that can severely effect your mobility and your ability to work. While people generally associate serious ankle injuries with sports activities and wearing inappropriate shoes, an ankle fracture can happen for a number of reasons, such as:
- Tripping and falling
- Uneven walking surfaces
- Jumping and landing awkwardly
- An impact, such as a car crash
Whether you were involved in a road traffic accident, suffered a slip, trip or fall in a public place or on commercial premises or had an accident at work, if you’ve suffered from an ankle fracture during an accident that wasn’t your fault, then Accident Advice Helpline is here to help get you the compensation you justly deserve. Ankle fractures can cause serious physical pain and are a major impediment to your daily life and if caused by someone else’s negligence you should not suffer in silence. AAH are there to give you the legal help you need.
