An ankle break can be completely incapacitating. In the best case scenario, with a neat break and no collateral nerve or blood vessel damage, the injured will face weeks without being able to walk, drive or carry loads, and in all likelihood they will be unable to work for around two months. As a result they will lose income and be unable to provide for themselves and any other dependents. Indeed, in the worst case scenario, the injured may require multiple surgeries, extensive physiotherapy and a permanent loss of mobility.
Many people wrongly believe that compensation claims can only be made for injuries sustained in the workplace. On the contrary, provided that the accident was caused by someone else’s deliberate or negligent actions, you could claim compensation for accidents which have occurred anywhere including hospitals, shops, public areas and on the roads. Ultimately, if you sustain injuries through no fault of your own, it is own right that you deserve to be compensated for the associated financial losses incurred.
Is a personal injury solicitor really necessary?
There is some public scepticism about the importance of personal injury claim solicitors and the fees they charge, with many feeling it would be better to pursue a claim without such legal representation. However, doing so is ill-advised. Personal injury solicitors have a detailed understanding of the claims process and specialist knowledge in their area of law, or at least out do. Our specialist solicitors know never to settle for less than you are entitled to and are able to use their expertise to recover the full and fair amount you deserve in light of your injuries and the effect they have had on your life. Given that your opponent is likely to have instructed a specialist solicitor to defend them, it would be foolish to put yourself at a disadvantage.
