Damaging the ligaments in your foot can be as painful, if not more so, as a fracture, and if you’ve suffered foot ligament damage, you might be unable to get from A to B, as it can be incredibly painful or even impossible to walk.
There is some good news though – if your foot ligament damage is the result of an accident that was somebody else’s fault, you might find you’re able to make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Why not take the 30-second test on our website right now, to find out how much you could claim?
What are the symptoms of ligament damage?
How do you know if you’ve suffered foot ligament damage? You’ll need to see a doctor to rule out a sprain or broken bones in your foot, but here are a few of the symptoms you may notice after your accident:
- Warm, tender skin in the affected area
- Intense pain
- Inability to walk or unable to walk without pain
Ligament damage can range from a Grade 1 to a Grade 3 sprain. With a grade 3 sprain, the ligament is completely ruptured and surgery may be needed. The more serious the damage, the more chance there is that your ligament won’t completely heal and you may suffer from ongoing pain, affecting your quality of life.
Let our personal injury lawyers get you the compensation you deserve – they work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so it won’t cost you a penny upfront to make a claim.
How were you injured?
You may have torn ligaments in your feet after an accident at work – such as falling from scaffolding whilst working on a property, or perhaps you have suffered ligament damage after a slip or trip on a damaged pavement whilst shopping.
In either of these situations, somebody else is to blame for your accident, which means you should seriously consider a personal injury claim, as you have a good chance of success.
There is a three-year time limit in place to make personal injury claims, so why not call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible after your accident on: 0800 689 0500.
It’s free to call and if your claim is successful you could receive a settlement which could help pay for medical bills or cover your household rent or mortgage, so you have less to worry about.
