    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Threshfield

    A fractured navicular is one of the long bones in your foot, and it can be easily broken foot by having something dropped on it to a forceful knock against it such as a hard kick. If your navicular has been broken and you were not at fault, then you could be entitled to make an injury claim by using an injury lawyer in Threshfield to help you.

    On average, 10% of broken bones are in the feet, but as they have 10% of the bones of any body in them, that should not really be a surprise.  The 26 bones that make up our feet are divided in to 3 separate sections, the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot.

    • The are two bones in the hindfoot, one that attaches the foot to the leg and the other forms the heel.
    • The midfoot has five bones, one of which is the navicular.
    • The forefoot is the long part of the foot, and has nineteen bones including the toe bones.

    Any injury you sustain through the fault of someone else entitles you to claim compensation. If this happens to you, you need to contact an injury lawyer in Threshfield, so they can guide you through the process of making a personal injury compensation claim.

    Sustaining a fractured navicular and using an injury lawyer in Threshfield

    You will soon know if you have a broken bone in your foot because initially the pain is very severe, particularly if the broken bone is your navicular. It is common for sports people to break this bone, footballers particularly, but it is also not unusual to get a fractured navicular in a road traffic accident or a work related accident.

    The normal signs of a fractured navicular include:

    • Severe pain
    • Bruising to the foot
    • Foot possibly looking deformed
    • In a clean break, you may hear the snap as it happens

    A lawyer in Threshfield will help you claim the compensation you are entitled to if someone else cause this to happen to you.

    The treatment of a fractured navicular

    It will depend on how serious your fractured foot is but some general treatments could include:

    • Rest, to keep the weight off the foot
    • Plaster cast
    • Crutches
    • Painkillers
    • Support boot
    • Ice packs
    • Having, pins, plates or screws inserted
    • Surgery to realign the bones

    Even when your foot has healed, for a while you should only wear shoes with plenty of room in them, don’t squash the bones into tight foot wear.
