One of the most common injuries resulting from a slip, trip or fall is an ankle injury. If you have fallen over in your workplace or in a public setting, you may be eligible to make a claim.

Some examples of accidents resulting in foot and ankle injuries include:

  • Slipping on a spill in a supermarket or shopping centre;
  • Tripping on a box, tool or other walkway obstruction on a worksite;
  • Falling from height on scaffolding or elsewhere while working on a building site;
  • Motor vehicle accidents, whether you are a driver, motorbike rider, cyclist or pedestrian.

Of course, there are many other ways you may have injured your foot or ankle. It could also be the result of repetitive moments required for your job, especially if you work with machinery or if your job involves a lot of manual labour.

These kinds of accidents can result in injuries such as:

  • Sprains;
  • Fractures;
  • Broken bones;
  • Soft tissue damage;
  • Torn ligaments;
  • Other conditions causing pain and swelling.

If you have suffered a broken ankle or another foot injury, whether it requires surgery or not, you may be entitled to make a claim to cover your medical and treatment expenses and lost income if you are unable to work.

Legal Advice for Ankle Injury Compensation Claims

If you have suffered an ankle or foot injury and are unsure of whether you are eligible for compensation, contact Lionheart Lawyers. It costs nothing to call us and enquire about whether you have a valid claim.

Our expert solicitors deal with injuries like yours every day and will be able to advise you of what to do to ensure you get everything you are entitled to.

Call us if:

  • Your ankle injury has just occurred, so you are unsure of the impact of your injuries yet. It’s never too early to contact the team at Lionheart Lawyers to understand your rights. There are time limits associated with making these types of claims, so the sooner you contact us, the better.
  • You are unsure if your ankle injury was work-related or the result of negligence. Not every ankle injury will be eligible for compensation, but if you are in doubt, ask us.
  • You have had your ankle injury claim rejected, or your existing benefits have ended. If the insurer has denied your claim or stopped paying your benefits before you are fully recovered, we may be able to assist you.

Making a Negligence Claim for Ankle Injuries

If your ankle injury was the result of negligence, then you may be entitled to pursue a compensation claim against the responsible party.

If the accident was caused by your employer’s negligence, then you may be entitled to work injury damages through your employer’s workers compensation.

Negligence may also be established if your ankle accident occurred in a public place such as a supermarket, train station or car park if you can prove, for instance, that the facility was poorly maintained, or a spill was not cleaned up promptly, or cleaning was underway without appropriate signage.

It may be difficult for you to identify if your injury was the result of negligence. This is where Lionheart Lawyers can help. We will listen to you to understand how your injury occurred, and advise you of your rights and entitlements under the law. Call us for a free case assessment today.

Claiming for Ankle Injuries Sustained at Work

If your ankle was injured during work, or if your injury was otherwise related to your job, then you may be entitled to claim workers compensation.

Workers compensation claims for ankle injuries are often managed directly between the injured and their employer. You may not even know that you are entitled to seek independent legal advice. However, there are many benefits to speaking to an expert at Lionheart Lawyers before submitting your ankle injury workers compensation claim.

For instance, if your workplace ankle injury is permanent, you may be eligible for a lump sum payout. This would be in addition to any weekly payments for lost income, and any medical or treatment expenses you are paid.

Also, if your foot injury was caused by your employer’s negligence, then you may be entitled to claim a lump sum known as work injury damages.

These lump sum payments are not automatically paid – they need to be applied for, and if you don’t seek expert legal advice, you risk missing out.

We understand that you may be hesitant to seek legal action for your ankle injury, especially against your employer. However, Lionheart Lawyers specialises in injury law and we are experts at maximising compensation so you can access the care and assistance you need to recover from your injury and move on with your life.

Rest assured that we will manage your claims process from start to finish, leaving you to focus on your recovery.

We will:

  • Listen to you to understand your accident and how your ankle injuries have impacted your life;
  • Identify all the claims you may be eligible to make;
  • Gather evidence of your accident and ankle injuries, including medical reports, and evidence of negligence if applicable;
  • Compile the information for your claim and submit your claim to the relevant insurer on your behalf;
  • If your ankle injury claim is successful, then we will follow up to ensure you are paid as promptly as possible;
  • If we cannot reach a settlement with the insurer, we will advise you of next steps, which may include court proceedings;
  • Even if your claim ends up in court, our legal professionals are highly skilled and experienced, ready to fight for you to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Our no win, no fee policy gives you peace of mind that we only take on cases we believe in and will do everything we can to ensure your claim is successful.
