Broken talus injury claim

0

Are you thinking about starting a broken talus injury claim?

The talus (anklebone) forms an important connection between your leg and the foot. When this bone becomes broken, it can cause severe pain and suffering.

The talus bone can become broken in a number of ways. You may break your talus when you:

• Fall over
• Twist your ankle
• Suffer a direct blow to your ankle
• Become involved in a collision, such as a car accident
• Suffer from a sports injury

What symptoms are associated with a broken talus bone?

A broken talus bone may cause:

• Immediate pain and continuing pain that is moderate to severe in its intensity
• Bruising, swelling and tenderness around the ankle
• Discolouration of the skin around the ankle
• Pain when you put weight on your foot

What is the main form of treatment for a broken talus bone?

To treat a broken talus bone, it is necessary to:

1. Put the pieces of the bone back together
2. Hold the pieces in their correct position until the bone heals

Casts are commonly used to achieve these two main aims. If the break is severe, a surgeon may use plates and screws or rods to hold the bone together. Crutches are often prescribed to ensure that you are able to rest your foot until your injury heals. However, if your break is mild, a boot or air cast may suffice.

Can you make a broken talus injury claim?

Regardless of the way in which you injured your talus, you may be eligible to make a broken talus injury claim. In addition to claiming compensation for your pain and suffering, you may be able to claim for your medical and transportation expenses, as well as lost wages.
