This type of body injury can have a huge effect on your everyday life, causing not only high levels of pain, but also the frustrating task of managing everyday jobs. Our feet are an essential body part that we use every day, so when our movement becomes restricted, common activities such as working or taking part in hobbies becomes a challenge. Depending on the severity of the foot injury, some element of rest or recuperation will be needed in order to ensure a full recovery and this may result in up to 6 weeks off work. Claiming for compensation will enable you to cover any additional costs that may incur during your recovery period as well as attempting to relieve any discomfort or pain.

Types of foot injury

The human foot is made up of 26 bones and with both feet making up a quarter of all bones in your body, there’s no wonder that some can be easily broken or injured. Whether it’s an accident at work, a sporting incident, slips and trips or a serious car crash, a foot injury can be responsible for a permanent or temporary disability.

There are a number of different types of injury that you be may be able to claim for including:

  • Broken toes – a common injury that can be the result of heavy impact or trauma on the foot, usually taking up to 6 weeks to heal.
  • Broken foot – there are different levels of severity in terms of a broken foot and treatment will depend on which bone is affected. Some fractures may be treated with just rest, compression and elevation where as others can require surgery and can take up to 6-8 weeks to heal.
  • Sprains and strains – generally this type of foot injury can be treated at home using plenty of rest and ice. The pain should subside after around 2 weeks but intense physical activity should be avoided for around 6 weeks.
  • Ligament tears – sudden forces on ligaments may cause them to tear which can lead to a painful experience and in some cases, it may require removal through a surgical procedure. Many tears can heal within 3 months but a complete tear may only feel normal after 6-9 months.
  • Fractured talus (ankle) bone – If you have suffered an ankle injury, the likelihood is that any movement will become almost impossible and if it does not heal correctly, further problems in the foot may arise. A cast or walking boot may be required but the healing time is usually around 6-8 weeks.
  • Metatarsal fractures – known as the five long bones in the foot, a metatarsal injury may be the result of an acute or stress fracture and can also take around 6 weeks to heal.
