Over 3 million accidents with reported injuries happen every year, which means there are a lot of potential innocent victims who may need to use a personal injury lawyer in Pwllheli. Among those injuries are many fractures, particularly in the feet.
Using a personal injury lawyer in Pwllheli for your fractured foot claim
Getting a fractured foot, especially in your toes, is very common because it is so easily done. Having something dropped on it can break your little toe, and most times the toes are fractured by the person who owns them. However, if your toes are broken in an accident that was not your fault then you may be able to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Pwllheli.
The treatment for broken toes
The treatment for fractured toes consists of not walking too much and not wearing high heeled shoes while it is trying to heal itself. Most fractured toes will heal in four to six weeks if treated properly and the victim is sensible.
As long as the bone does not look twisted or deformed, when you should seek medical attention immediately the following advice will help:
- Use ice packs and painkillers to reduce the pain and swelling, if needed.
- Put some gauze or cotton wool between the little toe and the toe next to it. This is to stop them chaffing and becoming sore.
- Bind the two toes together with plaster. The healthy toe acts as a splint for the broken toe, allowing it to heal straight and healthy. This is known as buddy taping.
- Keep the foot raised as much as possible for the first few days.
