  • Time off work or even the need for a career change;
  • A loss of income, travel expenses, and other costs;
  • An impact on your ability to socialise, engage in hobbies or your day-to-day activities.

Compensation can also help you access any support and rehabilitation you might need now and in the future, such as orthotic devices (e.g. adapted shoes and insoles) and many other types of care, aids and adaptations.

How the Ankle Injury Claim Process Works


    We’ll contact the other party

    If we think you’ve got a chance of getting compensation, we’ll get in touch with the other party, to ask them to admit liability for your accident and ankle injury. This might be your workplace, a local authority or business, or another person who caused a road traffic accident.


    We’ll gather evidence

    We’ll use our expertise to collect evidence to strengthen your care prove that your injury happened, or at least happened in part, because of someone else’s actions or negligence. This might include CCTV footage, photos, witness statements or accident logbooks.


    You’ll have a medical assessment

    We’ll send you to an independent medical expert, who will assess your injury and find out about how it has affected your life. We try to intervene early if we think you’d benefit from rehabilitation. If the other party admit responsibility for your injury, we can ask them to send you early interim payments before your claim has settled.


    We’ll work out the compensation amount

    Based on your medical assessment, we’ll work out how much compensation you’re owed and take this to the other party. We’ll be open about this with you throughout so you’ll always stay informed.


    We’ll settle your claim

    If the other party does not accept liability, then the claim may have to go to Court. Luckily, this doesn’t happen with most personal injury claims. If it does, we’ll support you and provide expert advice throughout the whole process.

FAQs about Ankle Injury Compensation

We could handle your claim on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that if we don’t win your case, you won’t need to pay us a penny. However, we believe in open communication and complete transparency when it comes to billing our clients, so you will always be aware of what the final bill could be at the end of the process.

If the other party admit liability, we could ask them to make early interim payments if you need urgent support and rehabilitation.

You have 3 years from the day you were injured to make a claim for compensation.

This is different if the injured person is a child. If they’re under 18, they cannot make a claim themselves. An adult can claim on behalf of them until they’re 18, at which point the claimant has 3 years.

You may be entitled to compensation if your injury is the result of one of the following:

  • An Accident at Work - you could make a claim against your employer’s insurance company if you injured your ankle at work or in the military because you didn’t receive proper training, protective footwear, or because your environment was unsafe. Most workplaces will be covered by insurance if you had an accident at work that was either fully or partly your employer’s responsibility. If you believe your employer didn’t meet their legal responsibilities and failed in their duty of care, get in touch with us.
  • A Road Traffic Accident - you might have injured your ankle if you were pedestrian, cyclist or a passenger/driver in a crash. This includes car accidents, motorbike accidents, accidents on a bus/coach or even e-scooter. If we can prove that someone else was fully or partially responsible, you may be able to claim compensation from the other party to help you recover and rebuild your life.
  • An Accident in a Public Place - You could have injured your ankle on a pavement, in a restaurant, shop or other business, where the organisation responsible should’ve taken safety measures. If so, you might be able to get compensation from a business or local council if your injury that could’ve been prevented. For example, you may have tripped on a pothole, raised tree root or raised paving, or your child may have injured themselves on defective equipment at a playground or activity centre.
  • Medical Negligence – if your ankle injury was caused by, or got worse as a result of a medical professional’s actions, get in touch with our specialist team. For example, your ankle injury may be the result of a surgical error, it may have been missed on an x-ray and got worse, or even have resulted in an avoidable amputation. The NHS and most private healthcare providers have a budget set aside for medical negligence claims.

Yes, you might have multiple injuries from an accident, or be dealing with psychological effects such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Our Lawyers are specialists in helping people with multiple injuries and we will assess the overall impact of all your injuries so that you can achieve the maximum compensation.

We know that ankle injuries can have a huge impact on other areas of your life. You can claim for any travel costs you’ve incurred, or for any ongoing support and rehabilitation you might need. This could include physiotherapy or adaptations to your home or car.

We aim to get compensation that will help you live the best quality of life you can after your ankle injury. We may be able to secure specialist rehabilitation for you, and care and assistance for your whole life if you need it.

You might need a cast, an air boot, ankle support, surgery or an external fixator from a serious fracture. If it’s very severe, your foot or leg may even require amputation. Compensation could cover financial losses you have already incurred and can help you get a sense of justice for the way in which your injury has affected your life.

There are many types of aids and adaptations, as well as different types of support you can get if you’ve suffered an ankle injury. Compensation can help you with:

  • Personal hygiene/care e.g. getting to bathroom, getting in and out of bath/shower – special adaptations may be required if your injury is permanent;
  • Your house may require adjustment if your injury is permanent e.g. ramp access or adjustments to living accommodation;
  • Cooking – adjustments for knee-height worktops or cooking appliances;
  • Cleaning and domestic chores – care and assistance and special adaptations;
  • Driving – if your injury affects your ability to drive, you may be entitled to claim for a driving assessment, special adaptions to your vehicle, or for the additional cost of buying an automatic car if this is recommended to you;
  • Mobility adjustments and aids e.g. a mobility scooter, wheelchair or walking stick;
  • Workplace adjustments/adaptations;
  • Footwear adjustments e.g. specially made shoes or orthotic devices, for life if necessary;
  • Different clothing to adapt to or accommodate a plaster cast or air boot;                       
  • Treatment charges or painkillers;
  • Compensation for reduced or complete loss of earnings.

Our Personal Injury solicitors are experts on all the different types of support compensation could get you, and are highly trained on the impact that these injuries can have on your life, so get in touch today to see if you’d be eligible for a claim.

If you believe someone else was at least partially responsible for the accident that led to your ankle injury, whether this was due to their direct actions, or lack of action (negligence), it’s still important to get in touch and speak to one of our specialist lawyers. With our Free Claims Assessment and years of experience, we’ll be able to tell you fairly quickly whether we think you have grounds for a claim.

If you were partly at fault for your injury, e.g. because of your actions on the road, or your failure to wear the footwear you were provided at work, this might reduce the amount of compensation you’ll be entitled to. We’ll find out everything we can about your circumstances and keep you up to date throughout.
