Bringing a Compensation Claim for a Fracture to the Leg, Knee, or Ankle
Leg injuries occur in the thigh, knee, ankle, or shin and they can affect the bone or the soft tissue. The lower leg contains two bones, the tibia, and fibula, as well as the ankle joint and the talus bone. Damage to any of these bones can severely affect the quality of the injured person’s life.
When starting the process of bringing a claim for these types of injuries, it is important to keep in mind the following.
- Preservation of evidence and inspection of the accident scene – in the case of serious accidents you should get a forensic engineer on the scene. They can attend at the scene of the accident and record what they have observed by taking measurements, sketches, notes, and photographs. You should also retain your own notes and photos where possible.
- Enquire about the availability of other forms of evidence – for example, there may be CCTV footage in the public area where the accident occurred. Or you may need to take down the details of witnesses who saw the accident happen. If your accident happens at work, you will need to take statements from your colleagues and ensure that your employer preserves the accident scene until a forensic specialist can assess it.
- Keep written records of your appointments with doctors and specialists – ask them to provide copies of their records and keep a note of all the medications you have taken.
