    Making a serious ankle injury claim

    An ankle injury suffered at work or in the home can be enormously debilitating, impacting many areas of daily routine that most of us take for granted. As well as affecting day to day life, an injured ankle may also prevent you from working. But you shouldn’t be made to lose out on pay as well as comfort because of someone else’s negligence – speak to Accident Advice Helpline today to find out if you could make a compensation claim.

    Causes of ankle injury

    In dealing with your claim, we’ll need to determine how your ankle injury was sustained to ensure you receive the appropriate compensation. An injured ankle is one of the most common personal injuries and can frequently be caused by:

    • Slips or falls on wet or uneven surfaces.
    • Falls from ladders or roofs.
    • Lack of hazard warnings at work or in public i.e. ‘Caution: wet floor’ signs.
    • Stress fractures due to high-pressure work environments.

    Types of ankle injury

    Ankle injuries can range from minor sprains to full-on fractures that require constant medical care. Often, the more severe and traumatic the injury, the larger the compensation payout – so don’t hesitate to make a claim if you have suffered any of the following:

    Sprained ankle – when the ankle has forcefully turned inwards, causing a small to moderate tear of the ligament. The healing process can be quick or slow depending on the extent of the tear.

    Tendon damage – a torn or ruptured tendon will result in a swelling of the ankle and a loss of elasticity and movement overtime. Recovery can be long and can lead to further complications such as arthritis.

    Fractured ankle – forcing the ankle bone at an unnatural angle, causing fractures. Victims may develop a constant limp and experience pain during cold weather, vastly affecting quality of life.
