Ankle Injury Compensation Claims

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.

When needed, our client liaison teams can help you access rehabilitation and, when applicable, can also secure interim compensation payments for ongoing treatment.

Ankle Injury Claims - More Information
    • What If I Don't qualify for no win no fee?
    • If your case doesn’t meet the no win, no fee criteria, there may be other options available to you.

      You may have Legal Expenses Insurance on your home insurance policy, for example, or you may be a member of a trade union which covers legal expenses. We’ll discuss the best options for you during your initial consultation. 

    • Who Will pay my compensation?
    • If you’re claiming against an employer, a public body or a driver, your claim will most likely be settled by insurance companies. Sports injuries may involve claims against individuals, such as a violent tackle in football, or organisations, such as gyms with faulty equipment. Organisations may be covered by insurance, whereas we’ll advise on a case-by-case basis for non-criminal cases against individuals.

      For criminal assault claims, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) will pay out if the person who assaulted you doesn’t have the means to pay.

    • Are there exceptions to the three-year time limit?
    • Adults can make claims for children up until their 18th birthday. If they reach 18 and a claim hasn’t been made for them, they can make their own claim up until their 21st birthday.

      There’s no time limit to make claims on behalf of people who lack the mental capacity to make a claim themselves.

      If your claim relates to a criminal assault, generally the limit is two years. However, this can be extended in some circumstances, for example if you were too ill to claim.

      If you were injured by a faulty product, you’ll have 10 years from the product launch date to make a claim.

      Finally, if the injury happened abroad, the time limit may be shorter. We can advise you on specific regions.

      Regardless of the circumstances of your injury, get in touch with us as soon as possible. The earlier you contact us, the easier it is for us to gather evidence to support your claim. 

    • What are interim compensation payments?
    • Where applicable, interim compensation payments cover ongoing costs while you recover from your ankle injury, for example, travel expenses to and from hospital. These funds are awarded before your final settlement and will be deducted from your final compensation amount. We’ll let you know if we think you will benefit from interim compensation payments.

    • what if my opponent doesn't accept responsibility?
    • We always try to negotiate an out-of-court settlement for you as this is generally less stressful for all parties, particularly during difficult recovery periods. If your opponent denies responsibility or disagrees with the proposed settlement, we’ll begin court proceedings.

      Often, even when trial dates have been set, claims are settled before reaching court. If it does go to court, we’ll guide you through every step.

I was recommended Irwin Mitchell by a solicitor friend of mine and I am very happy to say that the dedication and professionalism shown has completely supported this recommendation.”
