What are Some Examples of Ankle Injuries?

Law Offices of James M. Curran

As far as personal injury lawsuits go, suing someone in New Jersey over an ankle injury might not seem worth your time. But if you’ve experienced an ankle injury firsthand, you know that these injuries are much more painful and debilitating than most people realize. A slip-and-fall incident could put you out of work for months, making it harder to pay your bills and care for your family.

How Severe are Ankle Injuries?

If you slip and fall in a store or office, you could suffer from a whole host of injuries. A simple ankle sprain could be incredibly painful and limit your ability to walk or move around. You might be unable to work for months, requiring you to take time off work to deal with your injuries.

Worse yet, you might suffer from a fractured ankle. A fracture occurs when the bones break, which can require months of recovery time. You may even suffer from permanent pain or disability after the incident. Even if you’re not disabled, you might find it harder to walk after you’ve fractured your ankle.

You could also tear the tendons in your ankle when you trip and fall. This could cause severe pain and weakness that makes your ankle practically unusable. If you’ve experienced this injury or another injury from a slip-and-fall incident, you might want to look into suing the location for premises liability.

Can You Sue a Company After You’ve Injured Yourself on Company Property?

Depending on the situation, you might be able to sue the company if you can prove that its staff showed negligence. You may be entitled to compensation if someone at the company knew about the hazard and did nothing to prevent it. An attorney may be able to help you prove your case in court with solid evidence.
