Chicago Ankle Injury Lawyer

An ankle injury may be considered by some to be a minor outcome of a car crash or workplace accident. It will not be classified as a catastrophic injury such as a brain injury or a spinal cord injury. On the other hand, an ankle injury can be debilitating as in the case of any other serious injury. You may require rest, pain management, surgery and therapy to recover from an ankle injury. It is important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who understands your need for ample compensation to cover losses such as:

  • Medical costs
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Potential long-term effects such as chronic pain or loss of range of motion
