Fractured toe compensation?
Depending on how you sustained the injury, and how severe the injury is, you may be able to claim fractured toe compensation. The accident that caused it must have been the fault of another, either by accident or through negligence.
The amount of compensation you could receive will depend on how badly your toe is broken. The fractures can range from a hairline fracture to a break where the toe needs surgery to realign it.
You can only be certain if an x-ray is taken. The symptoms for a sprain and a break are very similar and in some cases treated in a similar way. The symptoms are:
- Possible blood beneath the toenail
- Coldness or numbness which could mean a damaged nerve as well as the broken toe
Treatment for a broken toe
If the medical practitioner you have seen is satisfied that it is a break in your toe the treatment may include:
- Strapping two toes together – called buddy taping
- In the severest of cases, pins or screws inserted while it heals
- Crutches to stop you putting weight on the foot
A simple fracture may take four to six weeks with buddy taping, the worst injuries can take much longer, and the medical practitioner will monitor the progress in case complications set in.
How to make a compensation claim for a fractured toe?
Accident Advice Helpline will deal with your personal injury compensation claim for you. We were established in the year 2000 to provide access to justice for blameless victims of accidents and assaults, and have done just that for many thousands of claimants since then.
We strictly adhere to four key principles, integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability, four ideals that have never let us down, and ensure that you get the high quality customer service you deserve.
We have in house solicitors who operate a no-win, no-fee agreement, because since 1998 there has been no legal aid for personal injury claims, and without this agreement many people could not afford to follow up their claims for compensation.
Our solicitors have the expertise to deal with all the large organisations involved in fractured toe compensation. Quite often these are insurance companies who have their own legal teams and will not want to pay you compensation. You need someone good on your side, and that is why you need Accident Advice Helpline.
On our website there is a 30-second test that will let you know if you qualify, and give you a rough idea about how much to expect.
Our helpline numbers, 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 are open 7 days a week, for you to speak to one of our friendly advisors and get free confidential advice about fractured toe compensation.
