Injury Solicitors in Coldingham on how easy it is to break a toe
Coldingham is a village in Berwickshire, Scottish Borders. To the south of Coldingham is Stoneshiel Hall, a country house built around an original 16th or 17th century tower house, and extended during the 19th century by the Hume family.
There was a monastery of high order on this site as early as AD 660, when it is recorded that Etheldreda, the queen of Egfrid, became a nun at the Monastery of Coldingham.
Even back in the days of Etheldreda toes used to get broken in accidents, the main difference now is that if someone else caused the accident, you legally can claim compensation for the suffering they have caused. To do this, you might like to contact injury solicitors in Coldingham who will make it so much easier for you.
Injury solicitors in Coldingham discuss how toes get broken
There are many ways that broken toes can happen because our feet are vulnerable; they carry our weight around all day, and then get something dropped on them or they receive a sudden forceful blow, that is all it takes for you to have broken toes. Making a personal injury claim with injury solicitors in Coldingham is what you should be doing if your toes have sustained breaks through someone elses fault.
Treating broken toes
The most common treatment for broken toes is:
- Putting some padding between the broken toe and the one next to it to stop them rubbing together
- Taping the two toes firmly together
- The healthy toe acts as a splint for the broken toes, but this only works if only one toe is broken. It is known as buddy taping
Buddy taping is fine and is used in the treatment of broken and sprained toes unless more than one toe if broken, or the toe looks deformed in any way. Then you may need bones realigning and this could involve surgery to insert pins to hold it in place.
Where several toes are broken, it is not unusual to have a plaster cast put on to keep all the toes in the right place so they heal correctly. The healing time for an adult is 4 to 6 weeks, but for youngsters they should heal quicker and for the elderly broken toes may take longer to heal.
