A fractured toe is a very common injury. Fractured toes can be caused by a wide range of accidents including car accidents, motorcyclist accidents, sporting accidents and accidents at work. A fractured toe can be a painful experience, but most of the time they can heal without needing surgery. In some cases, fractured toes can be more severe, and you may find yourself in need of compensation.
A fractured toe injury claim can be easily dealt with by our experts because fractured toes are one of the most common lower extremity injuries. Even an act as simple as stubbing a toe can cause a fracture. Car accidents and work injury claims often involve fractured toe compensation. Possible scenarios might be:
“A crate was dropped on my foot by an employee at work. It fractured my big toe, and I have been experiencing constant pain for the last week.”
“I was stationary at a set of traffic lights when another car slammed into the back of mine. I hit the pedals with so much force that I fractured my toes.”
If this sounds like you, fractured toe compensation may be rightfully yours.Open Claim Calculator
How much compensation could a fractured toe injury claim get you?
Compensation claims are based on two factors: how much pain the injury has caused and any financial losses which have been incurred as a result. Financial losses include the loss of earnings, additional home help and medical costs.
You could receive up to £4,000 for a simple toe fracture which fully heals within 6 months. A broken toe with multiple fractures that takes longer than 6 months to heal and includes minor ongoing pain could result in a claim of up to £6,000. Severe crush fractures which require surgery to correct may involve compensation of up to £15,000. For an in-depth discussion about what you could receive, Accident Advice Helpline is available to advise you.
