How Compensation Could Help You

The amount of compensation we can help you claim depends on the severity of your injury and the costs 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 anything from time off work and corrective footwear to specialist equipment - such as crutches or a wheelchair - and adaptations to be made to your home.

Having to do any of the above can be stressful, distressing and expensive. Securing compensation for your injuries makes sure you are supported and that you can focus on making the best possible recovery from your injuries.

Our aim is to make the claims process as straightforward as possible, allowing you to focus on making a full recovery. We 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.

Examples of common injuries of this kind include:

  • Broken foot
  • Fractures
  • Broken metatarsal
  • Sprains
  • amputations
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Achilles tendinopathy

We frequently work with sufferers whose injury was caused by:

  • 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

Effects and Symptoms

Foot injuries can be particularly problematic to sufferers 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 they suffer a metatarsal injury, for example, it is likely that they will need to wear a cast or splint.

Other symptoms differ from case to case, but can also include:

  • Pain when the affected area is touched
  • Redness and swelling around the area
  • Pain when standing or walking
  • Pain that worsens over time

This normally means not being able to walk for an extended period of time, which can have a significant impact on a person’s daily routine, as well as their ability to work and continue with hobbies and pastimes. It may also leave them relying on support from friends and family to move around comfortably.
