Injuries to the foot and ankle are common where people have tripped on uneven surfaces and rolled over on the ankle. This can make walking and other tasks very difficult, causing inconvenience.
The guidelines state that modest ankle injuries warrant an award up to £12,050.00. However, where recovery is complete within any ongoing symptoms, the value is unlikely to exceed £6,130.00.
More serious ankle injuries where there could be irritation from metal work and residual scarring could justify awards up to £23,310.00.
Straightforward toe fractures attract awards up to £8,420.00, however, if the recovery is complete, this is unlikely to exceed £4,460.00.00. Serious toe injuries with permanent disability and/or fractures to the metatarsal could warrant an award of up to £12,050.00.
It is likely your solicitor will recommend you obtain medical evidence from a foot and ankle specialist, depending on the severity of the injury. You may need early rehabilitation or treatment in the future, the cost of which will be included as part of your claim.
