What are the symptoms of Achilles tendon rupture/damage?
The Achilles tendon controls the up and down movement of the foot. Being that this is the case, symptoms of a ruptured or damaged tendon are typically associated with the ability to move the foot in such a motion. Primarily, when an Achilles tendon has become ruptured or damaged there will be a definitive snapping sound at the base of the heel followed by intense pain. It is not uncommon for a person to temporarily lose consciousness due to the intensity of the pain from a ruptured Achilles heel. In instances where a strain has been placed upon the tendon an individual may experience symptoms which include:
- Difficulty in walking
- Irritation of the heel
- Pain within the calf muscle
- Bruising and swelling around the ankles
- Limited motion of movement with the foot
How do injuries to the Achilles tendon occur?
The most common injury is caused by individuals who have not put a strain upon the muscles and tendons of the foot. The injury is caused when that person over exerts themselves and the weakness of the tendon and muscles, in turn, get damaged. Elderly individuals are at a higher risk of such damage. Additionally, individuals who have a history of foot and leg sprains, tears, and injury are at higher risk.
Should you file an Achilles Injury Compensation Claim?
Compensation claims are based upon establishing the negligence of a third party for the injury. That being stated:
If you or your dependent has received an injury due to a coach or personal trainer “pushing” you beyond realistic goals and physical limits which has resulted in injury to the Achilles tendon, you may have grounds for a claim.
Elderly persons which have undergone physical therapy and have received an injury to the Achilles tendon as a result of negligence may have grounds for a claim, especially if the elderly individual has had pre-existing conditions in the legs and feet which would warrant special attention to such are.
People who have received an injury caused by negligence to sports terrain which caused the foot to snap back and injury to befall them may have grounds for a claim.
Who's Most Likely to Win an Achilles Tendon Claim?
Any person who has suffered permanent damage to the foot as a result of injury to the Achilles heel, specifically any individual which must use a wheelchair or other form of mobile assistance to walk, definitively have grounds for a claim.
If you have had a foot amputated due to neglect during surgery on the Achilles tendon, then you may have grounds for a claim.
People who have suffered an injury to the Achilles heel and were misdiagnosed as to the severity may have grounds for a claim, especially if the misdiagnosis caused further damage to the tendon.
Any individual who has suffered an injury to the Achilles tendon and feels that the injury is the result of another person’s negligence should seek the professional opinion of a claims expert. Injuries should be diagnosed and treated by a doctor, nurse, or medical professional as soon as possible.

For example, if you have sustained a minor Achilles injury and it isn’t going to cost you any money for operations or time off work, you won’t be entitled to as much as you would if you sustained a severe injury. Furthermore, financial expenses is also a critical factor. If you have paid out in expenses for treatments then you could be owed more compensation.
