How Much Compensation for a Broken Ankle or Sprain?
Compensation for ankle injuries including breaks and sprains will vary significantly. Where there is convincing evidence to support the argument that someone else caused your injury, how much your award for compensation is will depend on the gravity of your injury.
We will also look at whether you will need extensive medical treatment in order to heal; and, importantly, whether you contributed to your injury by acting carelessly and exposing yourself to harm.
We work on a no win no fee* basis, and offer free phone consultations to all callers – which are 100% confidential.
How Much Compensation for an Ankle Injury?
You should keep in mind that any award for compensation will reflect your circumstances. However, it is not unusual for minor ankle injuries to attract up to £10,000 in compensation.
More complicated injuries, e.g. ligaments tears, could potentially yield between £10,000 and £20,000.
Injuries that result in any deformities or permanently restrict ankle movement have been known to result in compensation awards of up to £50,000 or more.
As well as a sum reflecting your injury, you are also able to claim for additional damages, such as loss of wages.
Regardless of the kind of injury that you suffer, the strength of your claim will depend on the available evidence to support it and ability of your legal team to use this to its greatest effect.
