Toe injuries are relatively common and, while they may sound innocuous, they can have a significant impact on the injured person’s life, sometimes causing issues that can last for the rest of your life.
If you are considering making a toe injury compensation claim and would like a clear idea of how much compensation you could receive for a specific injury, our solicitors are able to assist. We are happy to discuss your claim with you and will answer any queries you may have.
Types of Toe Injuries
Depending on the severity, a toe injury can have a serious effect on your quality of life. It could lead to a prolonged absence from work and an inability to walk without assistance. The most common injuries include fractures, breaks, crushes and amputations.
Fractures and Breaks
Fracturing or breaking one or more of your toes is a common injury that can occur in a number of ways, including:
- An impact in a car, motorcycle or other road traffic accident
- Crushing by heavy machinery or falling objects in the workplace
- Stubbing your toe following a trip in a public plac
The severity of your break or fracture will, in part, determine how much compensation you are awarded.
As well as causing broken or fractured bones, crushing injuries can also result in damage to the tendons, ligaments and soft tissue in the toes. In some cases, a crushed toe can render the whole foot useless due to the spread of pain.
Certain accidents can lead to one or more of the toes having to be amputated, if the injury to the toe or toes is severe enough.
There are two types of amputation: partial and complete. A partial amputation involves the removal of part of a toe, for example, up to your toe knuckle, while a complete amputation is the removal of the whole toe. In some cases, more than one toe will need to be removed, and the compensation you receive will reflect this.
How Compensation Can Help You
As well as covering the cost of your pain and suffering, compensation is designed to put you in the position you were in before the accident. Although you may never fully recover from a toe injury, your quality of life can be greatly improved with the financial help a compensation award may provide.
Compensation can help you access the best medical treatment immediately, receive help from rehabilitation experts to help you live with your injury and take care of any expenses incurred as a result of the accident, including lost and future losses of earnings. Our aim is to make your recovery as stress-free as possible.
