What is a toe injury claim?
A toe injury claim describes a claim for compensation if you have suffered injury to your toe or toes in an accident as a result of the negligence or legal fault of another.
Who is at legally at fault might not be as obvious at it might initially seem to establish, so it is always best if you are suffered a toe injury to contact a specialist solicitor to discuss who can be held legally responsible for your toe injury claim.
There are many different types of injury you can suffer to your toes in an accident, including:
1. Fractured toe injury claims
A fractured or broken toe is a very common type of injury – this can come from impacts (as in a car accident, motorcycle crash or pedestrian RTA); crush injuries (such as in the workplace by machinery or falling objects); tripping accidents (either at work or on the streets – stubbing your toe on a highway defect or an impact from a fall).
There are many different types of fracture you might suffer (such as hairline, simple, displaced fracture) – click fracture claims to see a page I have written setting out the different types of fractures or broken bones that can give rise to a toe injury claim.
2. Crush toe injuries
Crush injuries can cause many different types of problems with toes – not only broken and fractured bones, also tendon, ligament, soft tissue injuries as well as burst injuries.
Sometimes crush injuries can cause pain throughout the whole of your foot and lead to such severe damage that toes are rendered useless and have to be amputated.
3. Amputation toe and foot injury claims
Very severe injuries to the toe and foot can render a toe useless and effectively lead to death of the toe and gangrene setting in. Gangrene can spread to healthy parts of the body if an amputation does not occur.
Amputations can be complete or partial – in a partial amputation part of your toe is removed (for example from the toe knuckle)and in a full amputation the whole of the toe is removed.
