What are sprains?
A sprain occurs when a ligament is twisted, and damaged as a result.
A sprain affects the ligament, not the bone, and you don’t necessarily have to have broken a bone to suffer a sprain. That said, this injury can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms, such as swelling, tenderness, and bruising. Depending on the nature of your sprain, you may not be able to use the affected area, which can make life incredibly difficult during your recovery period.
Sprains and strains can be incredibly painful, and it is not uncommon for those involved in road traffic accidents in Wolverhampton to suffer these types of injuries. If you’ve been in an accident that has resulted in a strain, you may be able to claim compensation if the circumstances surrounding your accident reach the following criteria:
- Your accident took place within the past three years
- You received medical attention for your injuries
- You can prove that you were in no way at fault for the collision
