Get the personal injury compensation you deserve
A sprain is when you overextend or tear a ligament from stress on a joint or along the spine. Typical causes include breaking a fall with an outstretched hand (sprained wrist) and spraining an ankle from tripping on an uneven surface. A strain is an injury to a muscle caused by abrupt or extreme pulling of the muscle. Typical causes include slipping on icy pavement and lifting something heavy in an awkward position.
If you have suffered a sprain or strain due to a mishap at the gym, the negligence of others or unsafe working conditions, you have a legal right to file a legal claim (lawsuit) against those responsible in order to get financial compensation for your medical costs and time lost from work.
