If someone has caused you to break your toes, call ‘no win, no fee’ Carmichael lawyers for help with your personal injury claim.
Our feet are vulnerable and can have many injuries inflicted on them. They carry our weight around all day, and propel us wherever we want to go and then they get something dropped on them and end up with broken toes. This is just one of the ways you could possibly break your toes, there are many others, including:
- A direct blow such as might happen when doing some sort of sport or work
- The toes being squashed between two objects, perhaps in a door
These are just two examples of an endless list of events that could cause injuries to your toes, and may cause you to have to speak to no win no fee Carmichael about making a personal injury claim.
How to treat a broken toe
The usual treatment for a straightforward break is to use what is commonly usually known as buddy taping. This is when padding is placed between the broken toe and the toe beside it, and then they are strapped together. The toe next to the injured one plays the roll of a splint. Keep your foot raised as much as possible for a few days depending on how bad the injury is. Applying ice packs every few hours for about 10 or 15 minutes each time should soothe the pain for a while.
Try not to stand or use your foot too much and avoid wearing high heals until it is completely healed. Wear sturdy shoes with plenty of room in them to avoid squashing the toe, and if the pain gets to a point where you can’t move consider taking a painkiller.
This will work for ordinary breaks, but if the bone looks twisted, bent or out of place then the local A & E should be paid a visit to help with the injury. The bone may be severely broken or may need to be put back into place. If it comes to the point where it really isn’t looking good, you may need pins surgically put into the foot to reattach the toe.
