Ankle Injury Compensation

Ankle Injury Compensation

Ankle injuries can be very painful and cause long term problems such as susceptibility to future injuries and problems with walking or stability. The most common ankle injuries include fractures, sprains and strained ligaments, all of which can cause long term problems if not treated properly.

More serious ankle injuries include compound fractures and dislocations. The instability caused by ankle injuries can lead to long term disability which in turn affects a person’s ability to work. Some of the most common causes of ankle injuries are road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls, and sporting activities such as rugby or football. Ankle injury compensation claims will tend to be awarded more money if a long term disability has arisen because of the injury.

  • Minor ankle injuries including sprains and simple fractures where complete recovery within a year – £1,250 to £3,750 compensation
  • Broken or twisted ankle with incomplete recovery – up to £9,000 compensation
  • Severe ankle injuries which require lengthy recuperation but achieve complete recovery – approximately £15,000 compensation
  • Severe injuries requiring a long period of treatment with ongoing disability – e.g. ankle instability £30,000 to £50,000 compensation
