If you have a fall because you tripped on something, if you end up twisting your foot falling down some steps, or you have a road accident in Sefton and end up fracturing your foot as a result, then if the accident was not your own fault, you should speak to Accident Advice Helpline to help you to make a personal injury claim.
Despite knowing how important our feet are to us for being able to get about, we do not take good enough care of them and most broken feet are the result of something done by their owner.
Roughly 10% of all broken bones are in the feet, each foot having a total of 26 bones just waiting to be fractured. If your feet are broken and it’s not your own fault, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Can an injury solicitor tell me more about broken bones from a road accident in Sefton?
If you break any bones in your body, then it’s usually because of an accident, maybe in a road accident in Sefton for example. If the accident was someone else’s fault, and it has happened within the last 3 years, you may be able to use an injury solicitor to help make your personal injury claim. But how do these breaks happen in the first place, and what sort of accidents cause fractures?
There are lots of different ways that bones can be broken, whether they are in the feet or anywhere else in our body. For instance:
- Accident at school
- Road traffic accident
- Slip, trip or fall
- Work related accident
- Holiday related accident
The symptoms of a broken foot
