Claim for Ankle Sprain in Accident

How much compensation can I claim for ankle sprain in an accident if the sprain occurred in a car crash where I was travelling in a car that my father was driving and if he also caused the accident?

I cannot tell you how much claim for ankle sprain in accident you are entitled to without knowing specific details of the severity of the injury you sustained and how it has impacted on your life. As a rough guide, ankle injury claim amounts often range from £3600 to £33000 depending on how minor or debilitating the sprain is. The only one who can advise you on your particular ankle sprain injury is a personal claims solicitor who you should contact at the first possible opportunity. What I can tell you is that the fact that your father was driving the car in which you were travelling and also caused the accident has no bearing on whether or not you can pursue a claim for compensation.

In fact, injury claim amounts offered to passengers in cars are often substantially more than amounts offered to those who were driving. This is due to the fact that as the driver is focusing on the road, they will have a split second to brace themselves before a collision occurs, passengers do not have such awareness and so they tend to suffer more severe injuries than whoever is driving the car. If you are worried about potential familial strife occurring as a consequence of you pursuing a claim for ankle sprain in accident against your father, you should bear in mind that it is not him that you are initiating a claim against, but his insurance company. Your father will understand that a compensation claim may be necessary to cover the medical expenses of the ankle injury you sustained and the impact that the injury has had on your quality of life. If you are worried about family tensions in relation to your potential claim, you should discuss it with your solicitor.

It is in your best interest to consult a solicitor as soon as possible about the particular circumstances of your ankle injury. Passengers in car accidents risk being under compensated because of the often inaccurate assumption that injuries suffered by the driver and the passenger are identical. The solicitor will be able to evaluate the likelihood of success of your claim for ankle sprain in accident compensation.
