Can I claim for a foot, ankle or toe injury?

Injuries to toes, feet and ankles are often caused by sports, dance and other hobbies, especially where children are concerned. But they can also be the result of a road traffic accident, an accident at work, or even a slip, trip or fall where someone has acted negligently.

If you’ve suffered a foot, ankle or toe injury and it wasn’t your fault, you could have grounds to make a claim.

Our friendly claims advisors can listen to your situation and let you know if you have a case for compensation. Get in touch for a free no obligation consultation.

How will I prove my foot or ankle injury claim?

Whether you sustained a foot injury at work, in a road collision or in a public place, you’ll need to be able to prove that your accident was a direct result of someone else’s negligence. To do this, your solicitor will look to gather evidence including:

  • Accident records
    Most workplaces will have an accident book and this should detail incidents involving both employees and customers. If it’s possible, try to get a copy of this record, it could help to prove when and where you were hurt.
  • CCTV footage
    By law, you are completely within your rights to request CCTV footage of your accident. This could be vital in proving your claim, especially if there were no other witnesses to the accident.
  • Medical notes
    Seeing a medical professional should be the first priority after suffering a foot injury. But your medical notes could also help to build up your case by outlining the severity of your injuries.
  • Photos taken after the accident
    We appreciate that this won’t always be possible, but if you can, try to take photos of where your accident took place. This could help to give a clearer picture of how the accident happened and what caused it.
  • Witness testimonies
    If there was anyone else around to witness your accident, your solicitor will ask them to write up a testimony of what they saw. This can be extremely useful for filling in the gaps of your own memory.

We would also recommend writing down what you remember taking place. Try to keep a note of the events leading up to your accident and how your injuries have impacted you. For example, if you’ve had to cancel plans with family or take time off work, make a record of it.

By doing this, you’ll help to make sure that any compensation you receive is fully reflective of what you’ve been through.

How can First4Lawyers help?

Injuries to toes, feet and ankles are quite common and usually fairly minor. But more serious damage – particularly in the case of amputation – can cause mobility problems and permanent disability. This can result in the need for further surgery and time off work to recover.

Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in these types of claims and understand the physical, emotional and financial difficulties you might be facing as a result of your injury. They’ll work on your behalf to get you the outcome you deserve, so you can focus on your recovery.

For these types of claims, we work on a No Win No Fee basis. This means there will be nothing to pay upfront, and you’ll have no legal fees to cover if your claim is unsuccessful.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Our No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages. This could be up to 25% but it won't be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents and housing disrepair. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 35% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident and housing disrepair claims.

First4Lawyers are an award-winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

Foot, ankle and toe injury claim FAQs

What is the average payout for a foot or ankle injury?

In the UK, there are no fixed compensation payouts for foot injuries. This is largely due to the fact that these injuries, like many others, vary widely in their severity.

If your claim is successful, the amount of compensation you receive will depend on the extent of your injuries and how they have affected you. Your compensation will also consider:

  • Changes you may need to make in your work life
  • Home adaptations, mobility aids or prosthetics
  • Medical costs and ongoing treatment
  • Time taken off work, resulting in a loss of earnings
  • Time taken to recover from your injury

Your solicitor will be able to more accurately value your claim after gathering the details of your case. But for a rough estimate, try our free compensation calculator.

How long do I have to make a foot or ankle injury claim?

You’ll usually have three years to make a foot, toe or ankle injury claim. This might sound like a long time but we would always recommend seeking legal advice as early as you’re able to.

Speaking to a solicitor sooner rather than later could make it easier for you to remember the details of what happened. It may also be easier for your solicitor to access key evidence that will support your claim.

I think I have a claim – what should I do?

The first thing you should do after suffering a foot injury is seek medical attention. Your health should come first so this should be dealt with before anything else.

After this, you might consider making a claim for compensation. Our award-winning claims team are on hand to answer any questions you may have about the process. So you’ll have all the information you need to decide whether you’d like to go forward.

We’ll never apply any pressure on your decision, and there will always be the option to call us back at a later time.
