What can I claim for?
When making ankle injury compensation claims, we can look at any General Damages such as the effect the injuries have on your domestic, social, and work life. We can also look at any mobility problems caused by injuries and any scarring you may have to endure – both physical and mental – that are caused by the accident.
General Damages is really all about the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that has been caused.
We can also look at Special Damages, which can include lost earnings from time off work – including bonuses or overtime lost – as well as medical expenses, whether from prescription or over-the-counter medication. We can even look at orthopaedic supports and rehabilitation costs, and travel expenses to and from appointments.
Ankle injury compensation claims can be very different on a case-by-case basis, and they can be valued subject to medical advice from a formal report, along with our own vast expertise.
Ankle injury compensation claims
Here is a rough guide to ankle injury compensation claims, using information sourced directly from the official Judicial College Guidelines that are used to value legal cases:
Very severe ankle injuries which include cases of a transmalleolar fracture of the ankle with extensive soft-tissue damage resulting in deformity and the risk that any future injury to the leg might necessitate a below- knee amputation could receive between £39,900 to £55,500.
Severe ankle injuries where injuries necessitate an extensive period of treatment and/ or a lengthy period in plaster or where pins and plates have been inserted and there is significant residual disability in the form of ankle instability and severely limited ability to walk could receive between £24,900 to £39,900.
Moderate ankle injuries include fractures and ligamentous tears which give rise to less serious disabilities such as difficulty in walking on uneven ground, difficulty standing or walking for long periods of time. Victims could claim between £10,900 to £21,200.
Modest injuries which include the less serious, minor or undisplaced fractures, sprains and ligamentous injuries where an incomplete recovery has been made or not, could claim up to £10,900.
