Whether you live in the Isle of Wight or in London, Edinburgh or Birmingham, you can still easily have an accident which was not your fault and end up suffering with broken toes. If this happens then you should contact the solicitors in the Isle of Wight at Accident Advice Helpline, so they can help you to make an injury compensation claim.
Broken toes could mean you want to use the solicitors in the Isle of Wight
If you have had an accident in the last 3 years in which you were a faultless victim and as a result end up breaking your toes, then you may want to make an injury claim, using the solicitors in the Isle of Wight.
Our feet carry our weight around all day, and when they are out of action it can disrupt your life a great deal. Suddenly you can find yourself in the situation where you cannot drive or take a shower without help, all things that we normally take for granted.
How to know if your toes are broken
The best way to find out if your toes are broken is to go to the hospital and have an X-ray on them, as the symptoms for a sprain are very similar. The symptoms you could suffer from include:
- Possibly blood beneath the toenail
Treatment for a broken toe
The treatment for a broken toe, if the hospital confirm that this is what you have, could include:
- In the severest of cases, pins or screws inserted while it heals
- Crutches to stop you putting weight on the foot
- Strapping two toes together – called buddy taping
You may be able to use the solicitors in the Isle of Wight, if this break was because of an accident that was not your own fault and happened some time in the last three years.
The recovery time
The recovery time for a normal fracture could be 4 – 6 weeks to heal completely. More severe cases of a broken toe could take a lot longer to heal, the doctors will also keep a close eye on your progress to make sure it is healing properly. Broken bones in children tend to heal quicker because their bones are softer.
Claiming for your broken toes
Accident Advice Helpline will deal with your personal injury compensation claim for you. We were established over 13 years ago to provide access to justice for blameless victims of accidents, and have successfully done just that for many thousands of claimants since then.
We have in house solicitors who operate on a no win no fee agreement. Since 1998 there has been no legal aid for personal injury claims, and without the no win no fee agreement many people would not be able to afford to make a personal injury claim.
Our solicitors have the experience to deal with all the large organisations usually on the other end of a compensation claim. Quite often these are insurance companies who have their own legal teams and they will not want to pay you compensation. You need someone good on your side, and that is why you need Accident Advice Helpline.
