What Should I Do Next?
If you are looking to make a claim for ankle injury compensation, the most important first step is to speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible.
By doing so, you will be able to weigh up all the options of what to do next, based on a detailed appraisal of the details of your case and the quality of the evidence on your side. Your solicitor will provide you with an accurate estimate of how much you could claim in compensation, and your chances of success.
Once you have decided to start the claim, your legal team will get in touch with the party responsible for the injury and begin putting together the strongest possible case for you. By bringing together the medical evidence, witness statements and other supporting material, your solicitor can maximise your chances of a positive outcome, while providing you with expert advice and guidance throughout the process.
What Can Affect the Value of a Compensation Claim?
The amount of compensation you can claim for your ankle injury will depend on the severity of your injury and the expenses you have incurred as a result.
For many people with ankle injuries, a significant period of rest is required for the injury to heal, which may result in a need to take time off work, or potentially make it impossible to carry on in your current role. You may also incur certain expenses associated with your recovery, such as the need to purchase a brace, crutches or a wheelchair, or travel to and from physiotherapy sessions.
By speaking to a member of the JMW Solicitors team, a solicitor can provide advice on which factors in your case might affect the success of your claim and the amount you may be owed.
How Can Compensation Help?
By seeking compensation for your injury, you can gain access to funds that can be used to cover the cost of any earnings you have lost, as well as ensure you are financially supported throughout your recovery. The amount of compensation from your claim will be higher if your needs are greater, or if the nature of your injury requires long-term recovery.
Moreover, making a successful compensation claim will allow you to ensure that those responsible for your injury are held accountable for their actions, giving you the peace of mind you need to focus on your recovery.
At JMW, our team has many years of experience in making ankle injury claims, so you can rest assured that we will do our utmost to ensure you receive the highest possible amount of compensation for the accident.
Types of Ankle Injury
Ankle injuries can have a serious impact on your mobility, restricting you from being able to go about daily activities, and sometimes preventing you from working.
Some of the most common types of ankle injury include:
- A fractured or broken ankle
- Sprained ankle
- Os trigonum syndrome
An ankle injury usually presents itself through tenderness and swelling, bruising, loss of function, and an inability to bear weight. Recovering from an ankle injury can leave you immobile for quite some time because you are usually required to take the pressure off the joint by resting and recuperating. As such, you may be unable to walk, affecting your ability to uphold your personal and professional responsibilities.
The most common causes of ankle injuries include accidents at work, road traffic accidents, sporting accidents and slips, trips and falls. If your injury was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you should get in touch with JMW Solicitors to find out whether you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
