    Injury solicitors in Gloucestershire


    Our feet are very important to us, they carry our weight and propel us everywhere we want to go. They are also very susceptible to injuries because things can so easily be dropped on them or they can sustain a hard knock. Our toes particularly are prone to being broken, usually by the person who owns them. If however, your toes are broken in an accident that was not your fault some time in the last three years, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim and should contact injury solicitors in Gloucestershire.

    Why you might use injury solicitors in Gloucestershire if you have a broken toe

    A broken toe does not sound too much of an injury and is treated fairly easily provided it is a clean break. But even then, you will need to keep the weight off it for a while to allow it to heal and it will take several weeks to recover. It will be painful and may stop you being able to work or do other every day things. If your broken toe is from an accident caused by someone else, you may want to speak with injury solicitors in Gloucestershire about making a personal injury compensation claim.

    Treating the broken toe

    You cannot know if your toe is broken or sprained without an X-ray, but the treatment for them both is similar. The medical practitioner will:

    • Put some gauze or cotton wool between the broken toe and the toe next to it.
    • Bind the two toes together with plaster. The healthy toe acts as a splint for the broken toe, allowing it to heal straight and healthily.
    • Tell you to take painkillers for relief from the pain.

    This is fine unless the toes need realigning or pinning back in place and then you may need corrective surgery.

    Making a personal injury claim for broken toes

    Making a personal injury claim for broken toes is the same as making a claim for any other injury that you have sustained in an accident that was not your fault, and just like all other injuries the easiest way to do this is to contact Accident Advice Helpline.
