    We hope that you will not be involved in an accident which was not your own fault and in which you suffer from an ankle injury. However, if you do then you may want to make a personal injury claim using the solicitors in Highgate at Accident Advice Helpline to help you.

    A fracture or a break, they are all the same to the solicitors in Highgate

    A fracture or a break is the same thing. Some people think that they are different, but they are not. A fracture is the term that the medical profession calls a break, crack or crush to bones.

    A fractured ankle is quite a common injury because it is so easily sustained, usually caused by a direct impact or twisting of the joint, quite often in an accident that was not your fault. It is an injury that some people do not realise that they have even done, until they try to walk on it.

    What caused the accident in the first place, is what you should think about. If you realise it is because of someone elses negligence, then you may be able to make a personal injury claim, using  the  solicitors in Highgate at Accident Advice Helpline to help you.

    The treatment for a fractured anklebone

    The treatment for a fractured anklebone, depends on how bad it is, but usually:

    • The bones may need realigning
    • Screws and plates may be used in severe cases
    • Splint or plaster cast
    • Crutches
    • Painkillers
    • Physiotherapy
    • The ankle would have an x-ray
    • In complicated cases, an MRI, CT scan or bone scan may be necessary

    The recovery time

    The recovery time for a simple fracture should be six to eight weeks. However, a more severe fracture that may need surgery will take longer.  For the ankle to heal properly and as quickly as possible you must follow the doctor’s advice:

    • You may not be able to carry out normal every day tasks
    • You may incur extra expenses because of your inability to do things for yourself
    • Don’t put any weight on the injured foot
    • Don’t drive
    • Don’t go to work
    • You may experience stress and anxiety
