Achilles Tendon Injury Compensation Claims
What is an Achilles tendon Injury?
The Achilles tendon attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone and can be damaged by an injury to the ankle. Injuries to the Achilles tendon are usually caused through sporting activities but can also be caused at work or in public. If you or someone you know has suffered an Achilles tendon injury through no fault of their own you could be entitled to compensation. You can be compensated for the pain and suffering as well as any financial losses you may have experienced.
To gain an insight into how much you could be entitled to claim, your solicitor will instruct an independent medical expert to look at your medical notes, and/or examine you and consider the event and the consequences of your injury. The expert will then complete a report with a description of the injuries you have sustained, most importantly whether any problems will be permanent and what options you may have.
Based upon this report the lawyer will then be able to determine how much your personal injury claim is worth taking into consideration any suffering, inconvenience and pain. Grieves Solicitors will guide you through every stage of the legal procedure and will keep you informed on the progress of your claim throughout.
How much could you claim?
Achilles tendon damage can be extremely painful and take a long time to heal meaning victims may suffer from a loss of earnings.
