A sprain injury is most commonly associated with a wrist or an ankle, but such an injury can also affect any joint which contains ligaments and muscles. The manner in which a sprain injury occurs is most often through a slip or fall, but can be the result of a road traffic accident, an incident at work or sports injury. When you suffer a sprain injury due to the negligence of another person, you are entitled to make a sprain injury compensation claim and should discuss your case with a specialist personal injury solicitor.
You should also ensure that you have your sprain injury attended to by a doctor. Although sprain injuries are usually treated by rest, ice, compression and elevation, should the torn ligament fail to heal properly, you could suffer life-long discomfort and possibly mobility problems. A visit to the doctor will ensure that any damage is properly treated and the notes made by your GP will also be used to support your application for sprain injury compensation.
Making a Sprain Injury Compensation Claim
Any claim for sprain injury compensation is dealt with initially by the Injuries Board Ireland. You have to apply to them by post or online to have your injury independently examined and an amount of sprain injury compensation assessed to be paid by the negligent party. The application form leaves little opportunity for you to explain any circumstances beyond the basics of how your accident happened and who was to blame. So, it is always in your best interests to use the services of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor to make sure you claim all the special damages you are entitled to with a sprain injury compensation claim.
A solicitor will also be able to assist you with issues over liability – for example if the negligent party denies responsibility for your sprain injury or claims that you contributed to them by your own lack of care – and also represent you if your claim has to go to litigation in the courts or you are approached by the negligent party´s insurance company, wishing to make an offer of early settlement for your sprain injury compensation claim. There are many varied benefits of using the services of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor, but most importantly, it will ensure that you receive a fair and adequate award of sprain injury compensation.
