How do Ankle Injury claims happen?
Ankle injuries can happen in a variety of different places and situations. They mostly happen as a result of slipping on wet floors, tripping over objects that shouldn’t be there and falls from a height such as from ladders or other equipment that can raise you to a height sufficient enough to cause serious injury should you fall. Road accidents, accidents while playing sport and at work can also cause ankle injuries.

What are the Most Common Types of Ankle Injury?
Spraining is a common ankle injury and happens when the muscles and tendons that surround the bone become overstretched. In more serious cases, those muscles and tendons can be torn, and surgery may be necessary to repair the damage. One of the immediate results of a sprained ankle is extreme pain followed by rapid swelling around the joint. It is important to keep weight off a sprained ankle until the swelling has gone as well as applying a cold surface to the wound as medical attention is sought.
