Frequently Asked Questions About Ankle Injury Compensation Claims
Am I eligible to claim compensation for my ankle injury?
Your eligibility to claim damages will be contingent on how you injured your ankle, so to qualify for compensation, you’ll need to prove your injury was caused by negligence.
You can hurt your ankle practically anywhere, but these are some of the most common instances in which ankle injuries occur as a result of negligence:
- Workplace accidents – Slips and falls in the workplace are one of the leading causes of ankle injuries. If your employer has failed to create a safe working environment, this may qualify as negligence.
- Sporting injuries – Many sporting codes are rife with high rates of ankle injuries. Playing sport without proper safety equipment or safe training practices can create unnecessary risk.
- Car accidents – If you injure your ankle in a car accident caused by another road user, the person at fault’s Compulsory Third Party insurer may be required to provide you with compensation.
The Personal Injury Lawyers can help you determine whether your ankle injury meets the requirements for claiming compensation.
How long will I have to claim ankle injury compensation?
The timeframe you have in which to make an ankle injury claim may vary depending on your circumstances.
Most personal injury claims must be lodged within 3 years of the injury occurring, but this time limit can change based on where and how you were injured.
For example, some workplace injury claims must be lodged within 6 months of the accident.
