Ankle Injury Claims
Have you sustained an ankle injury lately? Was the injury caused due to the negligence of someone who owed you a duty of care? If yes, you may be able to make ankle injury claims and win compensation.
Ankle injuries can be caused under numerous circumstances. They can be caused as a result of road accidents, sporting accidents and falls from heights. But, the most common cause of ankle injuries is slips and trips. So if you have tripped on a public pavement or slipped in a supermarket and have suffered ankle injuries, you may be able to obtain compensation for the pain and losses you have been through.
There are many different types of ankle injuries which an individual may suffer as a result of getting involved in an accident. Some of the most common types of ankle injuries include:
Fractures – such injuries can be quite painful and take a long time to heal. They can also lead to serious consequences and render a person immobile. Depending on the type of fracture, the victim may also have to undergo surgical repair. There may also be damage to ligaments and tendons which can have long term consequences such as arthritis.
Sprains and Strains – such injuries occur as a result of overstretching of the muscles and tendons. If the injury is more severe, it can also cause tears to the ligament which can be extremely painful. Surgery may be required if the injury is severe.
Dislocation – occurs when the bones move and do not touch each other. Dislocation can be caused by fractures or sprains. Soft tissues, ligaments, muscles and tendons can also be affected following a dislocation.
How Much Compensation?
Injuries such as minor sprains, strains and fractures can attract compensation in the range £2000-£3500.
If the injury affects the Achilles tendon, a higher level of compensation can be recovered. Depending on the extent of the injury, compensation in the range of £4000-£25000 can be obtained.
If the ankle injury is severe and requires undergoing medical treatment, then you can expect compensation in the range £15000-£32000.
