Types of foot injury
Each foot is a complex part of the anatomy which is made up of 26 bones and 33 joints. For this reason it is an easy part of the body to injure. It is also for this reason that injuries can be complex and take time to heal. Some of the most common foot injuries are outlined below:
Broken and fractured bones
Broken bones in the foot can need a great deal of recovery time. This kind of injury can also mean having to take extended time off work, and suffering financially as a result. A foot injury compensation claim can get back lost earnings on top of any compensation money awarded.
The foot is made up of many different muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is easy to rupture a ligament in a slip or fall, and this kind of injury can be just as painful as a broken bone.
Feet and toes are frequently damaged by heavy objects being dropped on them at work. It is an employer’s responsibility to ensure staff have adequate foot protection in many environments. If they fail in this respect a compensation claim may be possible.
Making a foot injury claim
If you have suffered injury when it was not your fault, then it can be extremely painful and frustrating. It is your legal right in such circumstances to seek compensation. If the accident happened at work, claims are made against the insurance provider for the business rather than the owner itself. Employers are also forbidden by law from disciplining staff in any way for making a claim against them. Don’t suffer for someone else’s negligence.
