What Should I Do Next?
If you have decided to move ahead with a foot injury compensation claim, it is important to speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to discuss what to do next.
By speaking to a qualified solicitor, you will be able to weigh up your chances of success, based on the quality of the evidence on your side and the amount to which you could be entitled if your claim is successful.
Once you have decided to proceed with the claim, your solicitor(s) will be able to contact the party responsible for the injury and start gathering the necessary medical evidence, witness statements, and supporting material to prove your case. They will also provide advice and guidance through each step of the claims process, ensuring you can achieve a positive outcome with a minimum amount of stress.
What Can Affect the Value of a Compensation Claim?
The compensation you receive will depend not only on the severity of your injury itself, but also the costs you have incurred as a result of your injury.
For example, you could find that in addition to requiring a significant period of rest for the injury to heal, you may also need to take time off work, purchase corrective footwear, invest in specialist equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair, or make adaptations to your home to aid your recovery.
By speaking to a solicitor, you will be able to get a clearer idea about which factors in your case might affect the compensation amount, and how much you could be owed as a result.
How Can Compensation Help?
Suffering a serious foot injury can be distressing, expensive and disruptive to the quality of your life. Securing compensation for your injuries makes sure you are supported, and that you can focus on making the best possible recovery from your injuries.
By making a compensation claim, you can ensure you do not suffer a financial shortfall as a result of being unable to work, and that you are able to afford all of the costs associated with your medical treatment.
At JMW, our aim is to make the claims process as straightforward as possible, allowing you to focus on making a full recovery. Our solicitors will act with your best interests in mind to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Types of Foot Injury
Foot injuries can affect different areas of the foot, from the heel or midfoot to the forefoot, the ankle or toe, and vary in their severity. These injuries can be particularly problematic for two main reasons: they make walking difficult and usually require rest and a reduction of pressure on the feet in order to heal completely. If a person suffers a metatarsal injury, for example, it is likely that they will need to wear a cast or splint.
Examples of common injuries of this kind include:
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Broken foot
- Broken metatarsal
- Plantar fasciitis
Foot injuries can occur for a number of reasons, with some of the most common including:
- An accident at work
- Road traffic accidents
- Sporting accidents, such as playing football
- Slips, trips and falls in a public place
- Heavy objects falling on the foot
- Walking into large heavy objects
- Spraining your ankle
If your foot injury was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation - get in touch with JMW to find out more.
Foot Injury Symptoms
The physical symptoms of a foot injury will depend on the severity and cause of the damage, but can include:
- Pain when the affected area is touched
- Redness and swelling around the area
- Pain when standing or walking
- Pain that worsens over time
People with foot injuries are often unable to walk for an extended period of time, which can have a significant impact on their daily routine, as well as their ability to work and continue with their hobbies and pastimes. It may also leave them relying on support from friends and family to move around comfortably.
Because of the debilitating effects of many of the most serious forms of foot injury, making a claim for compensation can make a significant difference in supporting you during what can often be an extended recovery period.
