    Leg injury claims

    Suffering from a leg injury and considering legal action?

    If you are wondering how you could develop a leg injury the answer is pretty easily. In our experience it’s usually the small simple things which cause the most damage. An uneven or cracked paving stone, an unmarked wet floor that’s slippery, worn or loose floor coverings such as carpets or rugs or even an unexpected step in a dingy hallway can all cause a victim to trip, slip or fall.

    The symptoms of a leg injury you might experience are pain, swelling, bruising, instability, and weakness. The standard procedure for treating a leg injury is known as PRICE therapy. PRICE stands for:

    • Protect: Protect the affected area from further injury.
    • Rest: Cease the activity that is causing pain.
    • Ice: Apply ice for the first 48-72 hours to the affected area.
    • Compression: Bandage the injured area to limit swelling.
    • Elevation: Keep the injured area raised.

    Depending upon the severity of your leg injury, this will affect the length of your recovery period. Hopefully the long term effects of a leg injury will be minor and you’ll be back on your feet in no time. However, if that’s not the case you may wish to consider claiming compensation for a leg injury.
