You may have been walking into work, coming out of a store or walking around your neighborhood when uneven pavement changed everything for you. You may have twisted, sprained or fractured your ankle, causing you to fall to the ground grabbing your ankle in pain.
An ankle injury in a Florida slip and fall accident can be serious, bad enough to knock you off your feet for weeks. You use your ankles and feet so many times a day that when they don’t function right, or they can’t function, they can adversely affect your life.
Uneven pavement can cause you to suffer the following ankle injuries:
- Broken ankle
- Fractured ankle
- Sprained ankle
- Strained ankle
- Rolled ankle
- Twisted ankle
Other injuries that can occur in South Florida slip and fall accidents due to uneven pavement can include injuries to the Achilles tendon, contusions, dislocations, broken feet, broken toes and more.
When injuries that were outside your control occur to your feet or ankles – something so crucial to your well being – you should contact an experienced slip and fall lawyer in Broward County to make sure the party responsible for your ankle injury is held accountable for their negligence.
