While it’s easy to forget about it when your ankle is in good shape, you use your ankles and feet thousands of times every day. If you suffer an ankle injury, it can hamper your ability to go to work and complete other necessary day-to-day tasks. If you have an ankle injury that's not your fault, contact an ankle injury lawyer at The Law Offices of John M. McCabe.
Whether you have hurt your ankle in a car accident, slip-and-fall accident, or at work, you can rely on The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., to help you get the justice you deserve. We represent clients throughout the Raleigh area and have obtained numerous verdicts, settlements, and benefits awards in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.
An ankle injury lawyer can help you recover compensation for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. They can also help you file a claim with your insurance company to cover the damages. Additionally, they may be able to help you seek out other forms of compensation if someone else's negligence or wrongdoing caused the accident.
If you have sustained an ankle injury in an accident that was not your fault, it's essential to take action immediately after the incident. You should speak with an attorney as soon as possible so that they can begin investigating the circumstances surrounding your case.
An ankle injury lawyer will gather evidence about what happened during the accident and talk to witnesses who saw what occurred. They will also work with medical professionals who have examined and assessed your injuries after your accident. This information will help them decide whether or not there is enough evidence to pursue a lawsuit against another party who might be responsible for causing your injuries at fault (such as another driver or store owner).
We work on a contingency basis for personal injury claims such as ankle injuries. A contingency fee basis means we do not charge you anything unless we win a settlement in or out of court. This fee structure ensures we work hard for your case and that you don't have even more out-of-pocket expenses during a stressful time. We also offer contingency fee schedules for other practice areas, such as:
There are many different types of ankle injuries, and they can range from mild to severe.
Sprains are one of the most common types of ankle injuries. Sprains occur when there is a tearing or stretching of ligaments, which are connective tissue that holds bones together in the joints. Sprains can range from mild to severe, depending on how much damage has been done to the ligaments.
Ankle fractures occur when a break in one or more of the bones that make up your ankle. Fractures can vary in severity depending on the type and extent of injury sustained by the bone(s).
Dislocations occur when a joint's abnormal movement is due to an injury or trauma. Dislocations can vary in severity depending on how much damage has been done to ligaments and tendons surrounding the joint.
If you suffered an ankle or foot injury, the insurance company would likely offer a small settlement in its best interest, not yours. You may not realize it yet, but recovery from these injuries can be very complex, involving expensive medical treatment, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
Depending on how you injured your ankle or foot, there could be multiple sources of compensation, including a personal injury verdict, settlement, or workers’ compensation benefits. We have the skills and experience to handle your case, leaving you to focus on your recovery.
