    How to claim broken metatarsal compensation


    Any broken bone can cause you problems and inconvenience for a while, not to mention pain. A broken metatarsal means you have broken one of the main bones in your foot. This usually means it will have to be plastered while it heals and knits back together. This in turn means you’ll probably need to use crutches for a while so you can take the weight off the injured foot.

    Of course, the reason why the bone is broken will determine whether or not there is a possibility of getting broken metatarsal compensation. Normally people who receive such an injury will get a professional injury compensation lawyer to look into the facts surrounding what happened. It might be very easy to determine someone else caused your injury, but negligence has to be proven under the terms of the law in this situation in order for compensation to be paid.

    How much could you get?

    Every case is different, although there are rough amounts given for compensation that could be paid in the event of a successful claim. A broken bone that heals quickly with no further ill effects will warrant a different payment than if you were to suffer nerve damage as a result of the injury. More than one broken metatarsal might also mean you could win more.

    As you can see, there is a real need to consult an expert in this area of the law. Accident Advice Helpline can provide access to no win, no fee** lawyers with experience in these cases. They can take your details and determine whether you could win compensation of any amount.
