If you have been involved in an accident that has resulted in an injury to your ankle or foot, then Bonnar Accident Law can help you claim the compensation you deserve on a ‘No Win – No Fee’ basis.
Causes of ankle and foot injury
A broken ankle and/or a foot injury can be caused by a number of factors:
- A slip, trip or a fall
- A car accident
- An accident at work
- High impact blunt force trauma caused by a heavy or sharp object
- Scalds and burns
Injuries to the ankle and foot include:
- Bone fractures. The fibula, tibia and talus join at the ankle and are commonly broken in falls and car accidents. The feet and toes also have many bones that can be broken.
- Amputation. If a foot is crushed or severely injured, it may need to be amputated due to cell death caused by loss of blood flow. An accident could also cause an unplanned amputation of the foot if it is severed in a car accident or caught in a machine.
- Foot punctures. Sharp objects can puncture the soles of the feet.
- Sprains. A sprain occurs when the ligaments in the ankle or foot become torn. In some cases, surgery is necessary if the ligaments are torn and/or if the sprain does not heal on its own.
