Leg Injury

Usually injuries to the leg, ankle and foot are suffered by pedestrians, bicyclist or motor cyclists.  Leg injuries can also be caused in high speed collisions where there is significant intrusion by the impact vehicle into the passenger compartment resulting in major contusions and even fractures.  Foot and ankle injuries can also be suffered by drivers who are applying the brake forcefully during a collision.

As with any joint injury, an ankle injury can lead to future degenerative changes and arthritis.  The erosion of the cartilage and bone can lead to permanent joint pain, stiffness, swelling and disability.

For an ICBC claim, it is crucial to have the prognosis for this type of injury addressed by an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in ankle injuries.  Your lawyer can facilitate the appropriate referral and then present the best evidence to ICBC.

As these injuries can very from minor to disabling the damages recoverable vary significantly from case to case.
