- Slips and trips are the most common cause of industrial injury*
- Ankle injuries are often caused by broken pavements and potholes
- Compensation for a 'severe' ankle injury can result in compensation worth up to £35000
Ankle injuries aren't just painful and inconvenient, they're also difficult to treat and can cause recurring problems. If you've injured an ankle due to an accident that wasn't your fault, you could have a claim for compensation which, in extreme cases, could amount to tens of thousands of pounds.
Ankle injuries are often the result of slips and trips - both in the work place and in public areas. It's also common to see ankle injuries that result from broken pavements, damaged road surfaces and faulty stairs and in cases like these, you could have a claim.
At Watermans, we frequently see cases where our clients have broken ankles as a result of an accident that wasn't their fault. Road traffic accidents can also lead to ankle breaks and even to permanent disability when damage to the ankle is beyond repair.
Watermans can help. If you've suffered an ankle injury as the result of an accident in Scotland that wasn't your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.
