Injuries to the feet include strains, sprains, fractures and dislocations. The foot contains nearly one quarter of all the bones in the human body and fractures are common in workplace accidents, car accidents, slips, trips and falls. Some injuries are extremely serious and can cause long-term difficulties with walking and movement and will give rise to very substantial foot injury compensation claim settlements. There are numerous variations and combinations of fractures that cause difficulties however the most serious and most common injuries include fracture of the talus, fracture of the heel-bone, mid-foot injuries and toe/forefoot injuries :-
Fracture of the Talus
The talus is a small bone that sits between the heel bone (calcaneus) and the two bones of the lower leg (tibia and fibula). The talus is an important connector between the foot and the leg and body, helping to transfer weight and pressure forces across the ankle joint. Most talus fractures are marked by :-
- severe pain
- an inability to bear weight
- considerable swelling and tenderness
X-rays will usually show a fracture. In some cases, the X-ray will not show the fractures, so a computed tomography (CT) scan may be needed. They also will show whether the bones are still aligned (non-displaced fracture) or have shifted out of place (displaced fracture).
Fracture of the Heel
Heel bones often break in a motor vehicle accident or a fall from a height. This injury in particular can be disabling, restricting movement and walking thereby requiring a change of employment to a sedentary job. This injury often gives rise to a substantial foot injury compensation claim settlement provided that the third party involved can be shown to have acted negligently. Signs and symptoms include :-
- inability to bear weight
Lisfranc (Mid-foot) Fracture
Common accidents such as dropping a heavy item on your foot or stepping in a small hole, falling or twisting can result in a Lisfranc fracture - dislocation of the mid-foot where a cluster of small bones forms an arch between the ankle and the second metatarsal.
Toe and Forefoot Fractures
A broken (fractured) bone in your forefoot (metatarsals) or in one of your toes (phalanges) is often painful but rarely disabling. Most of the time, these injuries heal without the requirement of surgery.
