    Making an injury claim in St Nicholas at Wade

    For my injury claim in St Nicholas at Wade, can you explain a fractured navicular?

    Fractured bones in the feet happen very easily, something gets dropped on them and snap, broken bones. They account for about 10 % of all broken bone injuries. There are 26 bones in the human foot, divided into 3 separate sections, the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot.

    • There are two bones in the hindfoot, one that attaches the foot to the leg and the other forms the heel
    • The midfoot has five bones, one of which is the navicular
    • The forefoot is the long part of the foot, and has nineteen bones including the toe bones

    How would you get a fractured navicular and need to make an injury claim in St Nicholas at Wade?

    Feet are very prone to getting broken bones. They are likely to be kicked, knocked, or get something dropped on them. The break is usually sudden and unexpected, but you will know you have damaged your foot because the pain is immediate and initially quite severe. They get broken in all sorts of accidents and if you are the blameless victim of one of these accidents, you may be able to make an injury claim. The normal symptoms of a fractured navicular include:

    • Severe pain
    • Bruising to the foot
    • Foot possibly looking deformed
    • In a clean break, you may hear the snap as it happens

    How to treat a fractured navicular

    This depends on how severe the fractured navicular is and if any other damage has been done to the foot, but some of the treatments can include:

    • Rest, to keep the weight off the foot
    • Plaster cast
    • Support boot
    • Ice packs (Never put ice directly onto the skin, always wrap it something such as a tea towel first)
    • Having, pins, plates or screws inserted
    • Surgery to realign the bones

    You may be entitled to make a personal injury claim

    If your fracture was caused in an accident that was not your fault and it has happened within the last three years, you may be entitled to make an injury claim. The claim would made up of several areas apart from your pain and suffering, such as loss of earnings, medical expenses and any other cost that is a direct result of the accident and resulting injuries.

    When you are ready to make your injury claim you should contact Accident Advice Helpline, we have helped many thousands of claimants over the last 13 years get the compensation they were due.
