    No win no fee in Barnham Broom – anklebone injuries

    It doesn’t matter if it is a break, crack or crush, doctors use the same term for them all – fractures. A fracture to the ankle is quite a common injury, usually caused by a direct impact or twisting of the joint and very easily happens in an accident that was not your own fault.

    When an anklebone is fractured it is not always apparent that the damage has been done.  Sudden impact or twisting your ankle in a fall are the most common causes, but no matter how the injury occurred if it was through no fault of your own, UK law says you are entitled to compensation from the person who did cause it.

    No win no fee Barnham Broom at Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the access to justice you are entitled to so that you receive the compensation you deserve.

    No win no fee Barnham Broom lawyers talk about the possible treatments

    The treatment depends on the severity of the injury, but may include:

    • The ankle would have an x-ray
    • In complicated cases, an MRI, CT scan or bone scan may be necessary
    • Keeping the weight off the affected foot and do not attempt to drive with this type of injury
    • The bones may need realigning
    • Screws and plates may be used in severe cases
    • Splint or plaster cast
    • Crutches
    • Painkillers
    • Physiotherapy

    The recovery time

    A simple fracture that just needs a plaster cast or splint will heal in six to eight weeks; a more severe fracture that needs surgery will take longer.  For the ankle to heal properly and as quickly as possible you must follow the doctors advice which is usually:
