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