Ankle Injury Claims
Ankle Injury Compensation
If you or a loved one has had an ankle accident, and it was someone else’s fault, you may be able to claim injured or broken ankle compensation.
Your ankles bear the whole weight of your body, so it’s not surprising that ankle injuries are quite common. Due to this, ankle injuries can happen in a number of different ways, from everyday activities to sports-related activities or even simple slips and trips on public pathways and highways.
At The Compensation Experts, we understand that suffering from a serious ankle injury can cause discomfort, pain, frustration and lead to time off work. Long recovery times can lead to loss of enjoyment of physical activities.
Our team of agents, along with the solicitors we work with, have helped thousands of people make ankle injury claims. We assess all our claims on a No Win No Fee* basis (*conditions may apply), which means that even if your claim is not successful, you or your loved ones are not left with any scary costs.

A sprained ankle is an injury that occurs when you roll, twist or turn your ankle in an awkward way. As a result, the ligaments that help hold you ankle bones together might stretch. This can cause pain, tenderness and weakness around your lower body.
This type of ankle injury is extremely common. If your sprained ankle occurred as a result of your professional activity, then you may be entitled to file for sprained ankle compensation. However, as with any injury, your sprained ankle claim amount will depend on the severity of your suffering and your overall losses.
Types of Ankle Injury Claims
Besides sprained ankles, there are a number of other types of injuries that might make you eligible for compensation. The ankle is a highly complex structure of bones, ligaments and tendons, that, combined with weight-bearing functionality, makes it very susceptible to a wide range of injuries.
Some of the most common ankle injuries for compensation include:
- Ankle dislocations
- Ankle strains and sprains
- Cuts and lacerations
- Severe bruising
- Breaks and fractures of the ankle
How much compensation for an ankle injury?
Your ankle injury compensation amounts will vary greatly, depending on the cause and severity, where it happened, and how it happened. It is essential that you tell us all the restrictions your ankle injury has caused you, as well as the nature of the injury and its prognosis. You’re expected to receive compensation for the following types of damages:
- Suffering and Pain: this is also known as general damages, and it corresponds to the compensation that is awarded for how much you have suffered as a result of your ankle injury.
- Medical Costs: this covers both the medical costs that you have already incurred as well as those you are likely to incur in the future. Medical costs include any medical equipment and medication costs, and any health care costs.
- Wage Loss: this type of damage covers any loss of earnings as a result of being off work and not being paid your usual wage.
- Travel Costs: travel costs incurred directly as a result of your ankle injury are eligible for compensation.
