It’s important to make the distinction between workplace injuries and other types of accidents, because if your foot or ankle injury occurred due to your job duties then you’ll potentially be able to make a workers’ compensation claim. But if your injuries were caused by someone else’s carelessness or general negligence in any other setting, then you could potentially have the legal right to file a personal injury claim.
There are many different types of foot and ankle injuries that can happen to anyone within any work or non-working setting, and some of these common injuries include the following:
The ways in which a foot injury victim will receive their rightful compensation will essentially depend upon the surrounding facts of your case. There are many scenarios in which an injured person can have a claim for negligence against another individual or entity, but the process of going about receiving your compensation for your damages can vary depending on where and how your injury occurred.
The actual “valuing” of your case has a lot to do with the severity of the injury and expected duration of your symptoms and overall physical limitations. Economic damages like lost wages and medical bills are relatively easy to calculate, but non-economic damages like “pain and suffering” and “loss of quality of life” are a little more complicated.
