The type of injuries handled by a lawyer in Dunster
Any injury that happened within 3 years which, you can prove was caused by someone else and you can show that you sought medical attention has a high chance of being successful especially if it is handled by a lawyer in Dunster.
- Pain, distress and mental anguish suffered – there is nothing as stressful as getting an injury far away from home. You may worry, become nervous, anxious and fearful which may prevent you from having the quality of life you had previously which can lead to stress and depression.
- Minor fractures – are treated with casting and traction especially for non-displaced bones.
- Acute fractures – this occurs when the foot is stressed by walking or hiking and when any of the 5 metatarsal has been hit. Bones that are displaced are usually treated by applying grip support or a plaster cast followed by immobilization.
- Serious stress fractures – with more weight-bearing tendency may require surgical intervention to fix screws under anaesthesia by an orthopaedic surgeon to hold the bones together. Pain, swelling, bruising and tenderness are controlled by Paracetamol, ibuprofen and NSAIDs. Rest, ice, compression and elevating the foot will help. Rehabilitation involves stretching and strengthening exercises, cycling and resistance training (but not on the affected area) strengthen the muscles. Massage therapy and physiotherapy are important to enable to foot to regain its function when it heals.
