Sprained ankle (Up to £10,400)
You could be awarded up to £10,400 as compensation for suffering a sprained ankle injury at work.
A sprain is when the ligaments in the ankle have been stretched, twisted or torn. This usually results in swelling, bruising and pain around the joint. Ankle sprains can happen when you wear incorrect footwear for your work. If your work requires that you wear specialist shoes but your workplace has not supplied you with the correct footwear, then you could be entitled to a claim.
Dislocated ankle (£4,100 ~ £20,200)
You could be awarded between £4,100 and £20,200 as compensation for suffering a dislocated ankle injury at work.
The ankle joint is held together by ligaments in the foot and legs. Complete rupture of these ligaments can cause the ankle joint to dislocate. Ankle dislocations and ankle fractures often happen together. They are caused by high impact trauma to the ankle, such as something heavy falling on the ankle. Most ankle dislocations are not preventable and can happen in road accidents, fall accidents and accidents at work.
Broken ankle (£4,100 ~ £20,200)
You could be awarded between £4,100 and £20,200 as compensation for suffering a broken ankle injury at work.
The compensation you can claim for fracturing your ankle depends on whether you can make a full recovery from the injury; how long it takes for you to make a full recovery; the amount of treatment and surgery you need on the broken ankle; if any movement disabilities arise from the injury; and if there are cosmetic disfigurements caused. Depending on the seriousness of your broken ankle, your compensation can exceed the values stated in the bracket.
Achilles tendon injury (£5,500 ~ £29,200)
You could be awarded between £5,500 and £29,200 as compensation for suffering an Achilles tendon injury in an accident.
The Achilles tendon is the tissue that stretches from your heel to your calf muscles. An Achilles tendon injury is caused if it is partly torn or completely ruptured. Achilles tendon injuries are commonly associated with work activities involving sudden movements. Women who wear high heels to work are more prone to suffering from Achilles tendon damage.
Severe ankle injuries (£23,800 ~ £53,000)
You could be awarded between £23,800 and £53,000 as compensation for suffering a severe ankle injury in an accident.
Severe ankle injuries can be caused by medical negligence during surgery, or in high impact accidents such as a car crash. Sufferers of severe ankle injuries will require extensive treatment and major surgery. For multiple ankle fractures, pins and plates can be inserted into the ankle to aid recovery for a lengthy period of time. This serious injury can lead to the development of osteoarthritis, as well as severely limited walking ability and cosmetic disfigurement of the ankle.
