Our feet, which carry and propel us everywhere we want to go, are vulnerable to tripping, twisting, and having objects dropped on them. Bones in the feet are very easily broken; roughly 10% of broken bones are in the feet. Each foot has a total of 26 bones just waiting to be fractured, and if some one else causes this to happen to you Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a no win no fee in Barnsley claim.
The accident in which the break occurred must have happened within the last three years, but UK law says that if you are injured badly enough to need medical attention through someone else’s fault, the guilty party should compensate you for the suffering they have caused.
The causes of broken bones in the feet
There are many ways to break bones in your feet, and in fact in most cases the person that owns them causes the break. If this is not the case and someone else has caused the break, you may be eligible for a no win no fee in Barnsley claim. Just a few of the ways your feet can be damaged are:
- Kicking something hard and breaking toes
- Dropping something on the foot
- Heels are often broken after landing hard on your feet from a height
- Twisting you foot or ankle as you fall or slip
- Small cracks, called stress fractures, can occur in the foot bones over a long period of stress to the feet. This type of fracture often happens to sportspeople.
Breaking bones in your feet can be painful and disabling while they recover. If this has happened to you in any way which was not your own fault, you should contact our lawyers for no win no fee help in Barnsley about claiming compensation.
The signs of a broken bone in your foot
This depends on what part of your foot the broken bone is in, but with most of them you would experience:
- Coldness or numbness
- The foot can become misshapen or look deformed
The treatment of the break also depends on which bone is broken and the severity of the break, but the more usual treatments are:
- Crutches to keep the weight off the foot.
- Plaster cast
- Support boot
- A foot brace
- Broken toes can be treated by binding them to another toe
- Ice to reduce the swelling
