Suffering a leg injury can have a serious impact on your earnings due to the loss of mobility caused. Thankfully, you can turn to professionals such as Accident Advice Helpline to obtain leg injury advice and to pursue compensation to ease your financial troubles.
Leg injuries come in a number of forms, ranging from simple sprains and fractures through to dislocated joints and, in the worst cases, amputations. As we rely on our legs for mobility on a day-to-day basis any of these injuries can have major implications on our ability to earn. If you are the victim of a leg injury then the friendly advisers at Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
Types of leg injury
The most common form of leg injury is the sprain. Caused by almost any slip or fall, sprains usually do not take long to heal and often do not need professional medical treatment, however, they can still cause severe pain and limit your mobility. If caused by a fault in the signage of a hazard or a criminal attack you may be able to claim for your leg injury.
In more serious cases, the joints of the leg can become dislocated at the hip, knee or ankle. This type of injury can usually be fixed quickly and easily by medical professionals, however, in some cases it can have long-lasting repercussions. A dislocation can cause damage to the muscles, cartilage and tendons surrounding the joint leading to long-term pain that may limit mobility and impact your earnings.
The broadest category of leg injury is that of fractures. A simple, clean fracture can cause severe pain for a prolonged period of time, but will usually heal completely. In more traumatic cases, compounded fractures or unclean breaks can take much longer to heal, sometimes requiring surgery to rebuild bones and in some cases leaving lifelong pain and mobility limitations. In the worst case scenarios amputation may be the only solution. In all these circumstances, financial fears can be a serious burden, but with leg injury advice from a personal injury law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline, you can quickly and easily secure the compensation you deserve.
