In the old days if you worked in a coal mine then it probably was a daily occurrence when an accident happened to someone. If this happened then there was no one to help fight their cause, you simply had to get on with it and hope that the injury healed itself. You could not afford to stop working as you needed the money or else you would end up on the streets.
Thankfully, today we live in a world that understands the problems or having an accident in which you are injured. If you break a bone and it was not your fault, you are entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
A broken foot needs rest as it will need time to heal, and of course these days loss of earnings would be part of the claim, just like any other cost or loss sustained because of the injury.
If the accident in a coal mine were to occur today, you would want to know if your foot were broken or not
A sprain or a break can have very similar symptoms. In some cases they are treated in a similar way. The only way to be sure if your foot is broken is to have an X ray, but the symptoms you would experience are:
- Coldness or numbness which could mean a damaged nerve as well as a broken foot
The treatment for a broken foot
If the hospital confirm you have a broken foot, the treatment may include:
- In the severest of cases, pins or screws inserted while it heals
- Crutches to stop you putting weight on the foot
- A plaster cast
- Support boots
