    Troedyrhiw no win no fee accident


    Are you thinking of starting a Troedyrhiw no win no fee accident claim?

    Do you need to make a Troedyrhiw no win no fee accident claim? The metatarsal bones are the five long bones that reach down to our toes. As quite an exposed part of the foot, they are very easily broken. Many people had never heard of this bone until David Beckham had one broken. At the time, there was doubt whether he would be able to play in the World Cup. However, he did recover in time and was back in training in just a few weeks.

    It is an injury that is very common among footballers. Many of the famous ones have sustained this injury during play over the last few years. Their recovery time varies greatly. Some are fully healed after just six weeks. Others have been out of the game for six months.

    Footballers are not the only ones to get this injury. As with most broken bones, this injury is usually the result of an accident. if the accident was the fault of someone else, you could be entitled to make a Troedyrhiw no win no fee accident claim.

    Just because famous footballers do not, this does not mean you shouldn’t make a Troedyrhiw no win no fee accident claim

    Anyone playing a sport consents to the injuries that are part of play just by taking part in the game. Footballers generally accept that this injury can happen to them by an unintentional kick or twist of their foot and do not usually make a Troedyrhiw ‘no win, no fee’ accident claim.

    But there are far more ways to break a metatarsal bone than in sports. Anything dropped on your foot can break one of these bones, or some sort of sudden knock to this part of the foot can cause the same damage. Anyone sustaining this injury will initially have intense pain, but this does start to subside quite quickly unless they try to use the foot that is affected.

    Treating a broken metatarsal bone

    As with any injury, this will depend on the severity of the break. It also depends on how many of the metatarsals have been broken. The treatment could include a plaster cast to support the foot, painkillers and ice packs to help with the swelling and the pain. In the worst cases, surgery might be needed. The surgery is performed to realign the bones or to inserts pins to hold them in place.
