Injury lawyers in Trimingham
Trimingham is a village in the county of Norfolk. The spireless parish church of Trimingham is called St John the Baptist’s Head. This strange dedication to St John the Baptist’s head dates from the medieval period.
The navicular bones are in the feet, not the head, and if they get broken in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to use injury lawyers in Trimingham to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Breaking a navicular bone and using injury lawyers in Trimingham
Our feet are very vulnerable to bones breaking. Something just needs to get dropped on them or maybe a swift kick into them, and they break. 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.
The navicular bones are the five long ones in the midfoot, and if someone breaks one of these through no fault of their own, they may be entitled to use injury lawyers in Trimingham to make a personal injury claim.
Dealing with a broken navicular bone
Breaking a bone is usually sudden and unexpected, but you will know you have damaged your foot because the pain is immediate and initially quite severe. Navicular bones get broken in all sorts of accidents, and if you are the blameless victim of one of these, you may experience the following symptoms:
- Severe pain
- Bruising to the foot
- Foot possibly looking deformed
- In a clean break, you may hear the snap as it happens
The treatment depends on how severe the fractured navicular is and if any other damage has been done to the foot, but can include:
- Rest, to keep the weight off the foot
- Plaster cast
- Support boot
- Ice packs
- Having, pins, plates or screws inserted
- Surgery to realign the bones
