What Is An Ankle Injury?

If you have suffered an ankle injury and would like to claim, you must be able to prove that a third party’s negligence caused the incident that resulted in you being harmed. Negligence is a term used to describe a breach of duty of care. 

A duty of care refers to a party’s responsibility to take steps to ensure your reasonable safety. It can apply in a work environment, using the road or in a public setting.

The ankle can be susceptible to injury as there are many bones, ligaments, tendons and soft tissue in that area of the body. The NHS lists examples of ankle injuries including:

If you would like to find out if you’re eligible to claim, contact our advisors today. 

How Could Ankle Injuries Happen?

Below, we’ve included some examples of how ankle injuries could happen in different circumstances: 

In the workplace. The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 establishes the duty of care an employer owes their workers. It states that they need to take reasonable steps to prevent the risk of injury to their workers. For example, they should properly clear walkways of obstructions like loose wires to prevent slip, trip and fall accidents. 

In public places. The Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 states that the occupier (the party in control of the space) must ensure that they take the steps to keep the space safe for the public to use for the intended purpose. They must clearly signpost warnings about potential hazards that cannot be eliminated and perform risk assessments to control and review their safety procedures.

On the road. The Road Traffic Act 1988 outlines the duty of care that road users owe one another. This can help reduce the risk of car accidents and other vehicle accidents.  The Highway Code outlines different rules and guidelines that road users should follow. 

Contact our advisors for more information how this duty of care could be breached, leading to an ankle injury claim. They can also walk you through the process of using our ankle injury compensation calculator.  

How Common Are Ankle Injuries?

Please bear in mind that these statistics only relate to accidents at work; the figures for other areas might differ. 

According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), employers reported under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) that 51,211 employee non-fatal injuries occurred in 2020/21. 4,889 non-fatal ankle injuries were reported with 3,013 requiring a 7-day absence from work. 

What Impact Could An Ankle Injury Have?

Ankle injuries can significantly impact your life. Physically, the injury can cause pain and suffering, stopping you from participating in activities and exercise. Depending on your career, your ability to work could be affected.

If you have a permanent ankle injury, then this might leave you with a permanent disability. You might not be able to walk or stand for very long, if at all. This could cause psychological injuries such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression

If you have suffered an injury as the result of negligence and would like to claim, get in touch with our advisors today.

How Can An Ankle Injury Compensation Calculator Help Me?

An ankle injury compensation calculator can help to outline possible compensation you may be eligible to receive.  Our advisors can offer free, relevant legal advice explaining what the calculator figures mean and how to start your claim.

However, you can claim only when your injury is caused by third-party negligence. Therefore, it is vital to gather evidence proving the other party breached their duty of care. A No Win No Fee lawyer can help to gather evidence, which can include:

  • Medical records – Seek medical attention for your injuries to ensure your health. The document created by the medical professional can strengthen your claim.
  • CCTV footage – You can ask the occupier or employer for CCTV footage. You can also use recordings from colleagues and witnesses as well as dashcam footage in a road traffic accident.
  • Pictures – Photographic evidence of the accident site and injury can give context to the incident.
  • Witness details – Details can be collected and a professional can take statements at a later date. 

If you suffered a work injury, you can complete an accident at work book too. If the workplace has 10 or more employees, your employer is legally required to provide an accident at work book .  It helps create a timely record of the incident and can be completed on your behalf if you’re incapacitated.
