    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Have you received foot injury treatment in the last three years?

    Some foot injuries can be dealt with at home. For example, a small cut or similar injury shouldn’t present many issues. However, more serious foot injuries such as a broken bone or tendon problems may well require expert foot injury treatment to be given by a medical practitioner.

    Sometimes, you may not know the extent of your injury when you hurt your foot. For example, if something was dropped on it at work, you might experience some pain, but you may think you only have bruising to contend with. However, an x-ray to determine whether there has been any additional damage may reveal a broken bone.

    Did your injury stem from negligence?

    Not all foot injuries warrant compensation to be awarded to those suffering from the injuries. However, if there is good evidence that another party was negligent, there is a chance you could receive a compensation payment.

    Let’s say, for example, you were working on a production line at work, and something fell onto your foot, causing you to break several bones in it. If your job hadn’t been risk assessed and you weren’t issued with steel toe-capped boots to help protect you in such cases, you have an excellent case to argue for compensation to be received. Even if a full risk assessment was completed and recommended these boots should be worn, if you didn’t receive them, there is still a good argument to make for compensation.

    How might proof of your foot injury treatment help you claim?

    If you sought treatment for your injury, there will be an official record of it. This means the information can be used to strengthen your case, because it will show you did receive foot injury treatment and reveal the injury you suffered and the length of time it took to heal from it. If you engage the services of a no-win, no-fee* lawyer, they can gather all the necessary information on your behalf.
