Most of us don’t spend much time thinking about our toes and how important they are in our lives, but they help us to walk and balance – without them, walking and even standing up can be a struggle. The big toe in particular is vital when it comes to our balance, and accidents where this toe is severed can often severely affect a person’s mobility. The good news is that if you’ve severed your toe in an accident that was somebody else’s fault, you could claim severed toe compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.
What caused your accident?
Perhaps you work as a gardener and a faulty lawnmower ran over your foot, severing one or more of your toes? Or maybe an industrial accident in a factory or warehouse has left you with a severed toe – stock falling from height or a reversing forklift truck could easily cause injuries to your foot. Construction or gardening equipment such as a faulty chainsaw or other equipment could lead to a severed toe if it falls onto your foot whilst you’re operating it – but who is to blame? Well, if equipment you’re using at work is faulty and causes your injury, your employer could be held liable. If you’re injured in an accident in a warehouse, your employer could again be at fault if they have failed to keep you safe.
Severed toe compensation is about more than just compensating you for your pain and suffering. If your mobility is affected after losing one or more of your toes, you might be unable to return to work, which could make life difficult financially for your family. As well as being in pain, you may need to cover the cost of expensive surgery or medical treatment such as physiotherapy, and your quality of life is likely to be affected. Accident Advice Helpline’s professional personal injury lawyers have years of experience helping those who have suffered severed toe injuries claim compensation, and we could help you too.
