The ankle is one of the most important joints in the body, controlling movement and balance. It is a complex joint where the leg meets the foot, and is covered in ligaments and cartilage. For these reasons, it is an extremely easy and common place to injure. Having an injured ankle can seriously hamper movement and ability to perform normal everyday tasks, causing many people to be off work for a significant period of time. In such cases an ankle injury compensation claim may be possible to help recompense you for the pain and stress the injury has caused.
Have You Suffered An Ankle Injury?
As mentioned above, the complexity of the ankle leads to a large variety of injuries possible to sustain. The ankle is susceptible to broken and fractured bones, dislocations, as well as less serious injuries such as twists, sprains and bruising. Damage to ligaments and tendons in the ankle can be extremely painful, with damage to the Achilles tendon as excruciating as breaks and fractures. Torn or strain ankle ligaments can also seriously hamper the sufferers ability to get around. In cases of breaks and fractures, broken ankle compensation is available in many instances. Any type of injury is suitable for ankle injury compensation if the injury was caused by instances out of your control.
The list of ways to injure your ankle is endless, but let’s looks at some of the most common below:
- Work accidents
- Trips in public places
- Sporting injuries
Work accidents – Ankle injuries at work are very common, with either slipping/tripping on hazardous objects or objects falling onto the ankle being the most likely way to suffer injury. Employers have insurance to provide ankle injury compensation to those who suffer this way.
Trips in public places – Trips and slips in public places are common. If the accident was caused by poor maintenance or negligence – i.e. potholes/raised paving slabs or wet floors without warning signs – then compensation may be possible.
Sporting injuries – Ankle injuries in sport are common due to the pressures put on the joint by physical activity. You do not have to be a professional athlete to claim for sporting injuries. Broken ankle compensation is available if the incident was not your fault.
