Was your injury caused by negligence?
The three main types of foot injuries are ligament and muscle damage, stress
fractures, and broken bones. The bones in the foot are held together by
an intricate system of muscle and ligament. If these muscles and ligaments
are sprained or strained, it can cause serious and sometimes permanent
damage. Ligaments can be injured in a
slip and fall accident, where the leg and foot are twisted in an unnatural way. When ligaments
and muscles are damaged, the victim often has to undergo surgery or extensive
physical therapy. If you have had a ligament injury in your foot that
was the result of someone else’s negligence, a Brooklyn
personal injury lawyer can help you get a fair settlement.
Stress fractures are another major cause of foot injury. A stress fracture
is caused by repetitive stress on the foot, which eventually causes the
bone to crack. A stress fracture in the foot can be extremely painful
because of the pressure that is placed on the foot on a daily basis. A
stress fracture injury may require the victim to refrain from weight bearing
on the foot for an extended period of time. Broken bones in the foot are
also a very serious injury. Bones in the foot can be broken from any type
car accident, the blunt force of a vehicle part striking the foot can cause broken
bones. In addition, many personal injury victims suffer broken bones in
their feet from careless drivers who strike them when they are a pedestrian.
These drivers run over the person’s foot while the victim is standing
alongside the vehicle. These accidents occur with buses, taxis, passenger
vehicles, recreational vehicles, or construction vehicles. Even a single
broken toe can cause a victim to be unable to walk while their injury heals.
Pursue Compensation for the Consequences of Your Injury
Victims of foot injuries often require extensive medical treatment for
their injuries as well as a great deal of time to heal. This often results
in medical bills and lost wages. Some victims of foot injuries are never
able to return to their profession completely. You need to speak with
a Brooklyn personal injury lawyer if you have sustained a foot injury
in any kind of accident. Foot injuries are serious and painful injuries,
and if they go untreated, they can develop into a permanent condition.
If your injuries were the result of another person’s negligence,
you may be entitled to a settlement to compensate you for the pain and
suffering you endured.
