    What your feet do and why you may need the personal injury lawyer in Kentish Town

    Our feet have two main functions, to propel us and to support us. There are 26 bones in the feet, including our toes and metatarsal bones, which are the long bone along the middle of the foot. There are five of these, so naturally if things are dropped on your feet, or you kick things hard, they get easily broken. So if you have an accident that wasn’t your fault and the result is that you have a broken foot, you may wish to speak to the personal injury lawyer in Kentish Town, to make a claim.

    Why are metatarsal fractures common?

    Most metatarsal fractures happen in sports people, particularly footballers where they can kick the bottom of an opponents boot or be kicked by opponents themselves.  In fact, Wayne Rooney, Ashley Cole, Steven Gerrard and David Beckham have all suffered metatarsal fractures while playing football in recent years. They are are very common injury to have, so if you sustain this injury and it was not your fault you may be entitled to use the personal injury lawyer in Kentish Town to make a claim.

    How you care for your broken foot

    A broken foot can be very painful, whether it is a clean break or a hairline stress fracture. One of the most important things for your foot fracture is rest. The feet are weight bearing and should have the weight taken off them to give the best chance of a full foot fracture recovery. The treatment depends on how bad your fracture is, but can include:

    • Inserting pins, screws or plates
    • Ice packs (never put the ice directly on the skin, always wrap in something like a tea towel first)
    • Crutches
    • Plaster cast
    • Protective boot
    • Strapping toes together (called buddy taping)

    How long your foot fracture will take to heal

    The fracture usually takes 6 to 8 weeks to heal, providing you look after the injury properly. Although there are factors to consider such as age, as if you are a child you will heal quicker than an elderly person, but a child’s bones are more likely to break in the first place.

    How much compensation you could get when you use personal injury lawyer in Kentish Town to make your personal injury claim
