Can I use a no win no fee* Combe Martin injury lawyer for a fractured ankle?

Sudden impact or twisting your ankle in a fall is the most common causes for a fractured ankle. Anklebones can become fractured very easily, and it is not always apparent that the damage has been done. If  your accident was through no fault of your own, and you need medical treatment you should consider making a no win no fee* Combe Martin injury claim.

Do you have a fracture or a break – a no win no fee* Combe Martin injury lawyer is not sure

Doctors will use the term fractured for a crack or break in the bones, where the general public tend to use the term fracture for a crack rather than a clean break, which most people would then refer to as a broken bone.  If you think you have a crack or break in your ankle it may need treatment, and should go to straight to your local accident and emergency department.

Treating a fractured ankle

Depending on the severity of your injury, the treatment of a fractured ankle varies, but usually it is:

  • Splint or plaster cast
  • Crutches
  • Painkillers
  • Physiotherapy
  • The ankle would have an x-ray
  • In complicated cases, an MRI, CT scan or bone scan may be necessary
  • Keeping the weight off the affected foot and do not attempt to drive with this type of injury
  • The bones may need realigning
  • Screws and plates may be used in severe cases

The recovery time for a fractured ankle

This depends on whether your injury is a severe fracture, as this might need surgery and will take longer. Although a simple fracture that just needs a plaster cast or a splint should heal in six to eight weeks.

However long it takes to heal, the consequences might be dire:

  • You may experience stress and anxiety
  • You may not be able to carry out normal every day tasks
  • You may incur extra expenses because of you inability to do things for yourself
  • You will not be able to put any weight on the injured foot
  • You will not be able to drive
  • You will not be able to go to work

You may be entitled to claim for other things as a part of your personal injury claim, if the injury that you sustained was not your fault. Such as extra medical expenses or the loss of earnings, but really anything that cost you or made you loose out, because of your accident.
