Helping You Exercise Your Rights

The human foot contains a number of bones, so there is a lot of room for injury. However, the foot is quite amazing in that it is able to support the human body. It is so important in the support of the body that an injury to the foot can be devastating. Issues with walking can compromise a person’s quality of life in that they cannot engage in their everyday activities or even go to work.

The most common injuries that happen to the ankle and foot outside of sprains and strains are broken bones and fractures. They can result in:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Inability to wear shoes
  • Inability to bear weight
  • Difficulty standing at work

Foot and ankle injuries can also result in surgeries that are painful and take time to recover from. The surgeries are also expensive and the insurance companies of victims do not want to pay if someone else was at fault for the injury. Instead, they want the responsible party to pay and may refuse payment if they know that someone else was responsible for the injuries.
