Can I make an injury claim in South Wales for a broken pinkie?
Our feet are very easily broken, particularly the toes. Our feet carry our weight around all day, then we drop something on them and lo and behold, a broken pinkie (or little toe to those who know no better). Most broken toes have been caused by the person to whose foot they are attached, but not always. They do get broken in accidents as well and if this happens to you and the accident was not your fault, you may be able to make an injury claim.
An injury claim in South Wales and caring for my broken toes
If it is your little toe that is fractured, the treatment is quite easy and providing you are sensible and do as you should, will heal over 4-6 weeks.
If your toe looks twisted or bent, you should seek immediate medical attention as the bone might be misplaced. Repairing the little toe is straightforward and many people care for it themselves without even seeing a doctor, but the other toes are not so easily remedied.
Where does the fault lie for your broken toe and injury claim in South Wales?
If you have had an accident in the last 3 years, if in that accident you sustained an injury that needed medical attention, the person that caused the accident is the responsible party who will need to settle your injury claim. If your toes, feet, arms, legs or anywhere else on your body is injured, through no fault of your own, UK law says that the person who caused the injury should financially compensate you. That is the law and that is what they should do.
Where do you start?
You could start by submitting a claim yourself. Most personal injury claims are covered by insurance of one form or another, so getting in touch with the insurance company is the first thing to do.
