If you have a broken toe you may need the help of Injury lawyers in Trotternish
Trotternish is the northernmost peninsula of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. One of its better-known features is the Trotternish landslip, a massive landslide that runs almost the full length of the peninsula, some 30 kilometers.
Scotland, England or Wales, it does not matter where you live in the UK, if you are injured in an accident you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. The accident must have happened in the last three years, it must have been the fault of someone else and your injuries must have needed medical attention. If you fit those criteria then you should be talking to injury lawyers in Trotternish at Accident Advice Helpline.
Injury lawyers in Trotternish can help with a broken toe injury
If the injury you sustained was a broken toe you will suffer from pain, swelling, redness, bruising and possibly numbness if the nerve has been damaged. Toes are broken very easily by having something dropped on them, a sudden impact to them or being crushed between things such as could happen in a road traffic accident. Considering they carry our weight around all day, our feet generally are very vulnerable.
The compensation you can claim for a broken toe
The compensation you are awarded depends on the severity of the break in your toe. The fractures can range from a hairline crack to a break where the toe needs surgery to realign the bones. Most toes are broken by the people they belong to, but if yours was broken by someone else you may be able to make a personal injury claim.
Treating a broken toe
After they have taken an X-ray, if the A & E department is satisfied that it is a break in your toe the treatment may include:
- Strapping two toes together – called buddy taping
- In the severest of cases, pins or screws inserted while it heals
- Crutches to stop you putting weight on the foot
Keeping the weight off the toe is important and if you can have your foot raised for the first few days that helps.
