If you have ever suffered from a broken ankle, then you will know that it is a very painful and hugely infuriating complaint that can take a frustratingly long time to heal. What you may not know, however, is that you may have be entitled to seek compensation for this.
When can you claim for a broken ankle?
The law states that if you fall ill or are injured and somebody else was to blame, you are entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim. Therefore, if your broken ankle was not your fault, this would certainly apply to you. What’s more, you can begin claims proceedings at any stage for up to three years after the incident in question, so even if you broke your ankle a while ago you could still be entitled to begin claims proceedings.
Why is compensation available for a broken ankle?
As mentioned above, a broken ankle causes a great deal of pain as well as emotional and financial issues for a sufferer, and compensation is available by law in order to provide some form of recompense for these problems if the injury wasn’t the victims fault. As well as this, compensation also serves as a means of holding a guilty party to account if their actions have caused an injury to others.
What is the value of a broken ankle claim?
You are probably now asking yourself one question: “What is the value of a broken ankle claim?” However, unfortunately this is a difficult question to answer without knowing the exact circumstances of your injury. The answer will be different for each claimant and will be determined by factors such as the severity of your injury, the time it takes for full recovery and the effect this had on your everyday life in this time.
