Foot Injury Compensation Claims

Suffering a foot injury can not only be painful but also incredibly disruptive to your everyday life. You may be unable to get around, work, drive or enjoy your hobbies. At Irwin Mitchell, our solicitors understand how frustrating this can be, which is why we specialise in foot injury compensation claims.

How To Make A Foot Injury Claim

Start by calling us on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. We’ll go through how the injury happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has been affected.

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.

Our specialist teams can help you to claim for:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken foot
  • Bursitis
  • Non-freezing cold injury
  • Crush injuries
  • Amputation.

Foot injuries may result in temporary loss of income or inability to carry out daily activities, or they can be life-changing. We understand how helpless you may feel when your mobility is compromised, which is why we are here to fight for your compensation.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Foot Injury Claim?

In most cases, the cut-off point is three years after the date of the injury. There are some exceptions to these time limits however, for example criminal assault claims, where the time limit is two years. We always encourage you to make a claim as soon as possible, as this helps us gather the most accurate evidence to support your claim.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Foot Injury?

As every case is different, there are no standard compensation amounts for foot injuries. Along with the severity of the damage, we’ll assess your claim based on:

  • Your loss of earnings or need to retrain
  • Loss of mobility or function in the foot
  • Difficulty walking
  • Inability to carry out leisure activities
  • The impact on your loved ones
  • Whether or not you’ll need ongoing treatment.

Our serious injury team often deals with life-changing injuries such as amputation. If needed, we can team you up with our client liaison managers who can support you and help you access rehabilitation.

No Win No Fee Foot Injury Claims

Many of our foot injury 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 most of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your final compensation.

Why Choose Us?

From sprains and strains to more serious injuries such as a crushed foot, our leading lawyers up and down the country work on personal injury claims just like yours.

If needed, we’ll guide you through rehabilitation and help with interim compensation payments. Our compassionate team has decades of experience in supporting personal injury claims and we’ve secured billions of pounds in settlements. We understand that the effects of a foot injury extend far beyond physical pain, which is why we’ll fight to get you the best settlement possible.

Foot Injury Compensation 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?
    • For injuries that happened in a public place, for example if you tripped in a poorly maintained area, your compensation will come from that organisation’s Public Liability Insurance or the council. Similarly, claims made against employers will be paid out by company insurance, just as road traffic accidents with individuals are covered by their own personal motor policy.

      Medical negligence claims will either be against the NHS or a private medical provider.

      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 foot 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.”
