Accident Advice Helpline operate nationwide, so it does not matter where you live in the UK — if you are injured in an accident, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
The accident must have happened in the last three years, it must have been the fault of someone else, and your injuries must have needed medical attention. If these rules apply to you, you should be speaking with our Merseyside law firm.
A tiny injury to tell our Merseyside law firm about
One injury that happens in accidents quite often is a broken little toe. All our toes are prone to injury, but it seems the little one is the one most likely to break. If this happens to you, you will suffer from pain, swelling, redness, bruising, and possibly numbness if the nerves have been damaged.
Little toes are broken very easily by having something dropped on them, a sudden impact to them, or being crushed between things — all of which could happen in a road traffic accident or maybe an accident at work. The problem is that although this sounds like a little injury, the consequences can be much larger.
You could need to take time off work while it heals, reducing your income greatly. As most of us live from payday to payday, this can put victims under immense financial pressure. There are usually extra expenses after an accident as well, and although something like taxi fares to and from medical appointments does not sound much, over a few weeks this and all the other little expenses can mount up to a lot of money.
Treating a broken little toe
After they have taken an X-ray, if the A&E department is satisfied that it is a break in your toe, the treatment may include:
- Strapping two toes together – called buddy taping;
- In the severest of cases, pins or screws inserted while it heals; and
- Crutches to stop you putting weight on the foot.
Keeping the weight off the toe is important, and if you can keep your foot raised for a few days, that will help as well.
Making your broken little toe claim
Accident Advice Helpline can deal with your personal injury compensation claim for you. We were established over 14 years ago to provide access to justice for blameless victims of accidents, and have done just that for many thousands of claimants since then, making sure that they have received the compensation to which they were entitled.
We work on no win no fee* basis, so that victims do not have to worry about paying any money to start their claim, or if their claim is lost. This gives everyone the option of making a personal injury claim, regardless of financial situation.
Our solicitors have the experience to deal with all the large organisations usually on the other end of a compensation claim. Quite often, these are insurance companies who have their own legal teams, and they will not want to pay you compensation. You need someone good on your side, which is why you need Accident Advice Helpline.
If you want to discuss your claim in more detail with an adviser then dial 0800 689 0500 from your land line, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile.
