How Much Compensation For A Broken Ankle
A broken ankle can prevent you from taking part in many everyday activities including being able to work. Most broken ankle injuries can put a stop to your physical abilities on a temporary basis. Sometimes, the injury can leave you with lasting damage.
If a third party has caused your accident then it’s possible you can make a personal injury claim. The amount of compensation you will receive depends mainly on the extent of your injury.
Absolutely fantastic, good advice and solid support. First Personal Injury understood my personal situation and helped work around it to better my needs.
