SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
Our ankles do a lot of work as they support our entire body weight, so an injury to them can leave us completely immobile or suffering a reduced range of movement. This can result in loss of income and poorer quality of life for the victim.
If you've suffered an ankle injury and someone else is to blame, you should contact the dedicated team of expert personal injury solicitors at Forbes today to claim the compensation you deserve.
Ankle injuries can be caused by a variety of traumatic events. This can include slips, trips and falls, perhaps caused by wet floors or poor health and safety procedures, which result in injury to your ankle. It can also include road accidents and sports accidents, as well as incidents involving machinery.
A common injury is a sprained ankle, which is the painful result of the overstretching of muscles and tendons, including the Achilles tendon. More serious sprains can require surgery to repair tears or ruptures, which can be totally devastating. A key part of recovery is keeping weight off the sprained ankle while the swelling subsides, so it can require some time off work to fully heal.
Ankle fractures can be incredibly painful and serious. They can manifest as a clean break in the bone, or when the bone is shattered into several pieces, potentially causing long-term or even permanent damage as well as requiring surgery. A dislocation meanwhile, sees connected bones forced apart, causing severe pain and loss of movement, as well as negative long-term effects to your mobility.
Other ankle injuries can include ligament damage, cartilage injury, breaks or even the crushing of the joint. These can require anything from rest and relaxation to reconstructive surgery, sometimes leaving you with permanent damage as well as lost income if you have to take time off work or move to a different job.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury to your ankle and someone else was to blame, you can claim compensation to cover loss of earnings, medical costs, travel expenses to hospital appointments, or even necessary alterations to your home. The amount awarded will also try to compensate for the pain and trauma you have suffered.
