    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Compensation solicitor in Askam-in-Furness


    There are 26 bones in each of your feet and they are just waiting to be broken. Our feet are very vulnerable to breakages as they propel us round all day. Indeed, simple things such as something falling on them or bumping them on something, can easily break a few foot bones.

    There are many accidents that can cause this to happen, and if you have been injured in this way by an accident that was not your fault, you should be speaking with a compensation solicitor in Askam-in-Furness. At Accident Advice Helpline, some of the accidents we come across that cause broken foot bones are:

    • Heels being broken after landing hard on your feet from a height
    • Twisting your foot or ankle as you fall or slip
    • Small cracks, called stress fractures, occurring in the foot bones over a long period of stress to the feet
    • Toes being fractured when you accidentally kick something hard
    • Having something dropped on your foot

    In general, you will realise very quickly that you have broken a bone in your foot because the pain can be severe. Your foot is also likely to swell and maybe look deformed.

    If you sustain a break in your foot in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a personal injury claim, and you would be best off using a compensation solicitor in Askam-in-Furness at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Does a compensation solicitor in Askam-in-Furness know how my broken foot will be treated?

    This can depend on the severity of the injury, but common treatments are:

    • Plaster cast
    • A foot brace
    • Crutches to keep the weight off the foot
    • Broken toes can be treated by binding them to another toe – this is called buddy taping
    • Ice to reduce the swelling
