In our feet we have five long bones called the metatarsal bones, they are the ones that run down to our toes. These can be easily broken by a sudden impact such as a swift kick or something being dropped on them and innocent victims of this sort of injury may be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Greater London.
Breaking metatarsals and making a personal injury claim in Greater London
Most breaks to bones happen in accidents of some sort, and the metatarsals are no exception to this. Any sudden forceful knock too them, or an awkward twist of the foot can cause one or more of them to break, and if this was in an accident that was not your own fault, you are legally entitled to claim compensation from whoever caused the accident. The easiest way to achieve this is to make a personal injury claim in Greater London.
Footballers and broken metatarsals
This is a common injury for footballers to sustain and over recent years many of the top players have has this injury. When you are a player in the Premier League though, and you get a broken metatarsal in a game, you do not make a personal injury claim in Greater London because it is considered part of the game. In fact anyone playing any sport, consents to the injuries that happen in play, just by taking part.
With footballers, it has been said that there are more of these injuries now because of the type of boots they wear. They might be light and easy to run in, but they give very little protection to the foot.
