- The tibia: the main bone of the lower leg
- The fibula: a smaller bone that parallels the tibia in the lower leg
- The malleoli: the far ends of the tibia and fibula which form an arch on top of the foot
Additionally, the joint capsule and the ligaments that hold the ankle joint in place can suffer trauma and injury in an accident. It is important to have your injury diagnosed and treated as soon as possible to preserve your rights to compensation.Ankle Fracture and Catastrophic Injury Protection
