Ankle and foot injuries
Ankle and foot injury claims
Having an ankle or foot injury can be a frustrating, painful experience. Injuries to such areas of the body generally make it difficult for you to walk and move around as normal. Pain from ankle and foot injuries can affect how well you sleep, and you may be forced to take time off of work to allow for a recovery period.
Depending on how severe your injury is, you may have to receive physiotherapy to regain movement in your ankle, or have an operation to repair a break or fracture in your foot. These medical services may be necessary for your recovery, and you could experience a loss of earnings as a result of being off work for a period of time.
You can be involved in an accident in which you injure your ankle or foot at work, in a vehicle collision or when taking part in a sporting activity. You may even sustain an injury because of a fall in a public place or on a business premises. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
If you sustained your injuries within the last three years, now is your chance.

Making a claim
How do I make an ankle or foot injury claim?
Injuries to the ankle and foot may require you to take time off of work, or engage in some form of rehabilitation. If you are unable to walk due to your injuries, you may need help in the home in completing necessary tasks like dressing, moving around your home and buying groceries. This can cause undue stress for you and your loved ones.
If the accident which caused these injuries wasn’t your fault, and has happened within the last three years, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Now is your chance to make a claim with Watermans. Our dedicated team of personal injury solicitors can help you in seeking financial compensation for medical bills and loss of earnings throughout the period of your injury.
We offer straightforward legal advice to aid you in your claim, and we take the hassle out of the legal process for you. We also operate a no win no fee policy, which means you don’t pay any solicitors fees if we don’t succeed in winning your case.
How much compensation?
How much compensation for an ankle or foot injury?
As with all personal injury claims, the compensation you could receive on your claim can vary. It is dependent on the severity of your injury, and what long-lasting effects you may experience as a result. If somebody is found to have been grossly negligent in their duty of care to you, you may find that the sum will be larger.
Whatever the type of injury, we always strive to produce the best result for you, so that you can get your life back on track.
