Ankle Injury Compensation Claim
An ankle injury is one of the most common types of personal injury; the reason for this is that it is estimated that most of us will end up suffering an injury to our ankle at some point in our lives and as a result thousands of the compensation claims that are made every year come from accidents that have left people suffering from injury to their ankles.
Sprains, dislocations, fractures, ligament damage, moderate disability and permanent disability are a few examples of the injuries that you could end up suffering if you are involved in an accident that has left you with damage to your ankle. Some of the symptoms of injuries such as the above include pain, swelling, bruising and stiffness.
Out of all of our joints the ankle joint is considered to be one of the most complex; as it is a structure of bones, tendons and ligaments, which is under the control of an equally complex group of muscles. The variety of movements performed by the ankle subject it to forces of a magnitude far out of proportion to its size; so it comes as no surprise that the most common cause of an ankle injury is a slip, trip or fall accident.
As well as a slip, trip or fall accident you could also end up suffering ankle injuries from accidents such as road traffic accidents, workplace accidents and accidents in a public place. If you have suffered an ankle injury due to accidents such as these then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
