Ankle injury compensation

There are two different types of claims for ankles, ankle pain compensation and ankle sprain claims. Our team of medical negligence and personal injury lawyers will be able to assess your claim and advise on the action you need to take. 

Ankle pain varies greatly; you may have short term pain caused by a sprain or a more serious injury or fracture to your ankle which needs surgery to rectify your injury, this will affect your mobility and could impact your life moving forward.

If you have injured your ankle in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation.

No win no fee injury claims

Many of our clients worry about the cost of seeking legal advice for their personal injury claim. The vast majority of cases we work on are taken on a no win no fee basis so there is no financial risk to you. There are other funding options available to you; we will discuss this as part of your free consultation.

If you feel you have a personal injury claim for leg, knee or ankle injuries the first stage of the claims process is to phone us or email us with the details of your claim. We need to know how you were injured, where you were at the time of the incident, on the road, at work or in a public place. We’ll also need to know who else was there, either involved in the accident or as a witness. We’ll also need the details of your injuries, any medical diagnosis and the impact that this has had on your life both physically and financially.

Based on the information you give us we will be able to assess your claim and advise you on how likely it would be for you to be able to claim compensation. If we think you have a valid claim we will also be able to give you an estimated value for the claim and advise you on the next stages in the process.

The advertising world is awash with adverts for “Personal Injury Solicitors” but it is important you choose to work with a genuine expert because increasingly claims are being undervalued, meaning you do not receive the amount of compensation you are entitled to.

Time limits

As with all personal injury claims there are strict time limits imposed on when you can make a claim for ankle injuries. Usually you have three years from the ‘date of knowledge’; this usually applies when the injury is not immediately apparent. For these reasons it’s important you seek expert legal advice as soon as you know of an issue.

Claiming for ankle injuries

There are two different types of claims for ankles, ankle pain compensation and ankle sprain claims.

Sprains

On the whole there are three different types of claims for spraining your ankle, these are graded from one to three, with a grade three ankle sprain meaning a complete tear of one of more ligaments. Ankle sprains are injuries to your ligaments, this could be a sprain, tear or complete tear of the ligament.  

These types of injuries tend to be caused in trip and slip accidents in the workplace or out in public, pavements or shopping centres. If your slip was caused by the negligence of someone else, on a wet surface without a warning sign for example then you may be able to claim compensation.

Pain

Ankle pain can be caused by many factors, you may have been involved in a road traffic accident or injured in your place or work, or your ankle pain may have been caused by medical negligence. Once of the key factors in valuing a claim is pain and suffering as well as financial loss and the impact the injuries have had on your life.

Ankle pain varies greatly; you may have short term pain caused by a sprain or a more serious injury or fracture to your ankle which needs surgery to rectify your injury, this will affect your mobility and could impact your life moving forward.
