Types of Lower Leg Injuries

The lower leg contains two bones: the tibia (also often known as the shinbone) and fibula.

It also contains the ankle joint and the talus bone (also known as the ankle bone). The talus bone sits between the foot and the bottom of the tibia and fibula bones.

There are a range of ways in which injury to the lower leg can be caused. Car crashes and motorbike accidents are common causes, along with falls from height and sporting injuries, whilst motorbike accidents also leading to their fair share of lower leg injuries.


Fractures in the tibia and fibula bones are fairly common, but breaks in the tibia are often more serious. Many people who break their tibia also break their fibula at the same time, which can cause complications in the recovery process. If just the fibula is broken, however, the leg injury usually heals without causing significant long-term problems.

An injured person suffering from an uncomplicated fracture from which a full recovery is made may be in line to receive a significant sum of compensation in relation to the pain and suffering caused by their injury, with an additional award being made for any financial losses, such as time off work, suffered as a result of the injury. 

Multiple or complex fractures to the leg will often cause scarring and restricted joint movements.  This sort of injury can be difficult to recover from, and may require a significant amount of time off work, medical support and even adjustments to your home.  A trained lawyer will be able to secure compensation to meet the inevitable cost that will be attached to these various needs.   


We have acted for many individuals who have unfortunately suffered an amputation of the lower leg.

Amputations of this kind are referred to as ‘below-knee’ amputations and can lead to serious pain, phantom pain and a radical and lifelong change in the circumstances for the amputee and their family, not to mention causing the amputee emotional trauma.

How Compensation Could Help You

A lower leg injury of any severity is likely to lead to at least a short period of time experiencing reduced mobility, discomfort and pain - in short, being unable to live the life you had before. It is inevitable that the more severe an injury, the more damage it will cause the injured party, prolonging recovery time. In some cases, you may never fully recover from your injury.

Compensation aims to get you as close as possible to the position you were in before the accident, and to contribute to the costs you have incurred as a result of your injury.

That means the money that we can help you recover can go towards expenses such as:

  • Expert medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Transport costs
  • Loss of earnings
  • Prosthetics
