    Injury lawyers in Torksey

    Injury lawyers in Torksey are sorry to hear about your fractured ankle – did some one else cause it?

    Torksey is a village in Lincolnshire. Being an inhabitant of Lincolnshire is no different to being an inhabitant of anywhere else in the UK if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault.  The law says the guilty party should compensate you for the suffering they have caused, and location is not a consideration.

    If your fractured ankle was caused by someone else, talk to injury lawyers in Torksey

    Doctors use the term ‘fractured’ for a crack or break in the bones, making no distinction between the two.  If you think you have cracked or broken your ankle you should go to straight to your local accident and emergency department for treatment.

    A sudden impact or twisting to your ankle in a fall can easily cause a fracture and you should consider what made you fall, or what hit your ankle, because if someone else was at fault you may be able to talk to injury lawyers in Torksey about making a personal injury compensation claim.

    Treating a fractured ankle

    The treatment depends on how severe the injury is, but can include:

    • An x-ray
    • In complicated cases, an MRI, CT scan or bone scan may be necessary
    • Keeping the weight off the affected foot
    • Do not drive with this type of injury
    • The bones may need realigning
    • Screws and plates may be used in severe cases
    • Splint or plaster cast
    • Ice packs
    • Crutches
    • Painkillers
    • Physiotherapy

    The healing timescale

    A simple fracture that just needs a plaster cast or splint will heal in six to eight weeks; a more severe fracture that needs surgery will take longer.

    The claims process

    So if the accident that caused your injury was not your fault, apart from pain and suffering, you may be able to claim for other things as part of your personal injury compensation claim, such as loss of earnings, extra medical expenses and any other cost or loss that was a direct result of the accident.
