    How to treat leg injuries


    Have you sustained a leg injury after a slip, trip or fall, an accident at work or even a road traffic accident? We use our legs on a daily basis to get from A to B, so any injuries sustained have the potential to affect our mobility, and serious leg injuries could have a huge impact on your life in future. When it comes to how to treat leg injuries, the treatment provided will of course vary depending on the type of injury you have sustained. From fractures and crush injuries to lacerations, it may take you some time to recover from your leg injuries and be fit enough to return to work and carry out daily activities.

    Types of leg injuries

    As we mentioned, how to treat leg injuries will depend on what type of injuries you have sustained, and here are some of the most common injuries Accident Advice Helpline has handled claims for since 2000:

    • Lacerations
    • Fractures
    • Crush injuries
    • Loss of a leg
    • Ankle and foot injuries
    • Strains, sprains, tendon injuries

    Treatment can range from resting your leg and applying ice to relieve swelling to major surgery, and the amount of time you’ll take to recover from your injuries will also depend on the severity of your injuries. For example, if you have suffered serious crush injuries after a car accident, you may need to take months off work and in some cases (e.g. if you have a physical job) you may be unable to return to work at all. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings if your leg injuries were the result of an accident that was somebody else’s fault.

    Returning to work after your accident

    When it comes to how to treat leg injuries, you may have needed weeks or months off work for treatment and to recover after your accident. Before you return to work though, you might want to consider making a personal injury claim. You can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you have a viable claim and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our personal injury advisors. Or take the 30-second test on our website to see how much compensation you could be entitled to, if your claim is successful.

    There’s no need to worry about how you will afford expensive legal fees after being affected by loss of earnings, as our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so anybody can afford to make a claim.
