The lower leg comprises of the knee, shin bone, ankle and foot, and there are very many reasons why one might sustain an injury in those areas. Lower leg injuries that are caused by the negligence of others entitle you to make a lower leg injury compensation claim.

Irrespective of the way in which you sustain your lower leg injury, your first consideration should be to seek urgent medical attention. A lower leg injury can be debilitating, and if the condition is allowed to deteriorate may lead to lifelong health issues. Only once there is no longer any risk of your injury developing into a permanent condition should you speak with an experienced personal injury claims solicitor with respect to making a lower leg injury compensation claim.

A claim for lower leg injury compensation is usually made to the Injuries Board Ireland except in the event that your lower leg injury is due to medical negligence – for example, caused by a chiropractor. A solicitor will be able to guide you through the processes required for the completion and submission of the appropriate paperwork and advise you how to proceed should the negligent party deny liability for your injuries or claim that you contributed to your injuries by your own actions.
A solicitor will also be able to intervene if you are approached by the negligent party’s insurance company with an offer of early settlement for your lower leg injury compensation claim. Frequently, the insurance company will make an offer of leg injury compensation which may leave you undercompensated.
