Suffering an ankle injury can not only be extremely painful but can also seriously disrupt your life. If you’ve suffered a broken, sprained, or fractured ankle, or ligament damage, we’ll strive to get you the compensation you deserve.

How To Make An Ankle Injury Claim

Start your ankle injury compensation claim by calling our personal injury specialists on 0800 056 4110. We’ll take you through a free initial consultation, during which we’ll ask you what happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has changed as a result.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

Ankle injuries can be caused by accidents in the workplace, road traffic accidents, sports injuries or trips and falls. We can help you claim for injuries such as:

  • A broken ankle
  • Ankle sprains (ligament injury)
  • Ankle strain (muscle or tendons)
  • Severed or damaged Achilles tendons
  • Bursitis.

You may need to take time off work or retrain for a less physical role. Loss of movement in the ankle may leave you unable to take part in your favourite hobbies, and you may experience pain or difficulty walking.

How Long Do You Have To Make An Ankle Injury Claim?

Generally speaking, the cut-off point for personal injury claims is three years after the incident date.

However, there are exceptions to these time limits and we advise that you claim as soon as possible after the incident. This helps us gather evidence and increases your chances of getting compensation.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For An Ankle Injury?

There are no specific compensation amounts for ankle injury claims. Every claim is different and your individual circumstances will affect your settlement. To help us assess your settlement figure, we look at:

  • The severity of the injury
  • Loss of earnings
  • Job loss or retraining for physical roles
  • Inability to take part in leisure activities
  • Long-term impacts, such as loss of movement.

No Win No Fee Ankle Injury Claims

Most of our ankle compensation claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from the compensation you receive.
