Boston Ankle Injury Lawyer
Injuries to the ankle comprise a large portion of personal injury claims. An ankle injury can be brought on by multiple different causes. As a Boston ankle injury lawyer, I have represented many people who have suffered ankle injuries due to negligence.
Common Ankle Injuries
Sprains – This is the most common type of ankle injury. Each day 25,000 people sprain an ankle. An ankle sprain is when ligaments of the ankle are injured. These range from mild to severe. An inversion ankle sprain is the most common form of an ankle sprain. Crutches as well as a walking boot may be given to one who has suffered this injury. In time the sprain should heal well.
Fractures – Also quite common are ankle fractures. These are breaks to the bones in the ankle. There are different types of fractures than can result to the ankle. A displaced fracture is when the ankle moves out of place. A non-displaced ankle fracture is when the broken bone is not moved out of place. Depending on the severity of the fracture, surgery may or may not be necessary.
