    Road accident in North East Lincolnshire

    If you are unlucky enough to have a road accident in North East Lincolnshire that was not your own fault and as a result end up with injured feet, then you may need a solicitor from Accident Advice Helpline to help you make a personal injury claim.

    In your feet, you have something called navicular bones, and if they get broken in a road accident in North East Lincolnshire that was not your fault, you may be able to use an injury lawyer to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Breaking a navicular bone in a road accident in North East Lincolnshire and using injury lawyers

    Everyone’s feet are very vulnerable to bones breaking. If something gets dropped on them or maybe a swift kick into them, they can break. They account for about 10 % of all broken bone injuries. There are 26 bones in the human foot, divided into 3 separate sections – the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot.

    The navicular bones are the five longs ones in the midfoot, and if someone breaks one of these in a road accident in North East Lincolnshire, through no fault of their own, they may be able to use injury lawyers to make a personal injury claim.

    How to deal with a broken navicular bone

    If you break a bone then it is usually sudden and unexpected, but you will know you have damaged your foot because the pain is immediate and initially quite severe.  Navicular bones get broken in all sorts of accidents, and if you are the blameless victim of one of these, you may experience the following symptoms:
