Treating a toe injury by going to see your GP or your local hospital is very important if you are hoping to register a claim for personal injury compensation. This is actually the same advice no matter what sort of injury it is that you’ve suffered. It’s the only proof that injury claim solicitors can usually accept in order to validate any claim.
Although toe injuries might not sound particularly nasty in the scheme of things, they can be extremely painful and quite debilitating. A severe injury to one of your toes can even affect you for life if the toe is so badly damaged that it has to be removed.
You might be surprised to know just how valuable your toes are, making correct toe injury treatment that much more important. Your toes give you balance and support as you walk. They maintain contact with ground approximately 75% of the time. They are instrumental in spreading and bearing your body weight, and they lend speed when you run. The big toe is the most important of all, able to bear more weight than all of the other toes combined.
Treating a toe injury such as a sprain or a fracture
Treating a toe injury like a sprain is something that can be done quite simply at home by employing the R.I.C.E philosophy. R.I.C.E. is short for:
If you have broken your toe, (which can be confirmed by having an x-ray), the toe may need to be supported in a cast if the break is severe and needed resetting.
If you needed treatment for a toe injury that was caused by someone else, you may be thinking about claiming compensation, and if you are, we here at Accident Advice Helpline will be pleased to assist.
