The metatarsal bones are the five long bones in the foot. They are the bones that are most commonly broken in the foot and fractures can occur due to sudden injury or repetitive stress over time. These are known as acute or stress fractures respectively.
When a metatarsal bone breaks or fractures suddenly, it is often accompanied by a sound. Symptoms often include:
- Difficulty supporting your weight with your foot (when standing or walking, for instance).
Metatarsal fractures can occur in a variety of accidents. They are common in athletes and sportsmen, or anyone who runs, but can also occur due to slips, trips and falls, moving & handling accidents or something falling from a height onto the foot.
Often these accidents are just that and could not have been prevented. However, sometimes accidents happen due to the carelessness, recklessness or otherwise of other people and could, and should, have been prevented. Personal injury lawyers in Dundee can help you to make a claim if you have been injured and you feel someone else is at fault.
