Injuries to pelvis and hips
An injury to the pelvis and/or hip can have an effect on your ability to walk properly, making it difficult to look after your own basic day-to-day care needs. You may also require lots of help from family and friends, and if you are unable to work, that can have an impact financially.
Our team can work with you to secure interim payments following your injury, which can ease financial burdens. We’ll also get you any necessary rehabilitation for your recovery.
The consequences of a leg injury may mean that you can lose a period of time away from work. To ease any financial burden this may cause, our team will secure interim payment while your case is ongoing, and can also look to provide rehabilitation to help maximise your recovery.
A break or a fracture to the ankle can leave someone off their feet for a long period of time, and we understand the implications of this.
We deal with all types of ankle injury claims. The most common are fractures such as ‘transmalleolar’ and ‘bilateral’. A transmalleolar fracture can result in a deformity and any future injury to the leg, and could result in a below-the-knee amputation. Bilateral ankle fractures are also a particularly nasty injury; particularly if the bilateral fracture occurs while you are young, as it can cause degeneration of the joints, which could lead to surgery requirements.
Lower limb disorders
Lower limb disorders (LLDs) at work affect the hips, knees, legs and toes and usually occur as a result of overuse. Common risk factors at work include:
- Repetitive kneeling or squatting actions;
- Fixed postures such as standing in a certain position for more than two hours without a break;
- Frequently jumping from a height.
Research suggests that there are many recognised diseases of the lower limbs that are associated with working conditions such as:
- Hip osteoarthritis;
- Knee bursitis;
- Knee osteoarthritis;
- Meniscal lesions and tears;
- Stress fractures;
- Varicose veins.
Achilles tendon injuries
An injury to the Achilles tendon can require surgery and take many months, and even years, to make a full recovery from. A person can require lots of help from family and friends, and if they are unable to work, that can have an impact on their income.
If you, a family member or a friend has suffered an injury to an Achilles tendon through someone else’s negligence, and would like to talk to one of our personal injury solicitors, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today.
Injuries to the foot may be as the result of a fall, slip or trip, car accident, cycling accident, motorcycling accident or an accident sustained in the workplace. It is also possible for an injury to be caused or worsened as a result of medical negligence.
No matter how your injury happened, the impact of a foot injury can be big. That’s why we encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as possible for a free chat, to discuss how we may be able to help you.
Toes may only be small, but due to their location on the body they are exposed to hazards. Most medical treatments for toe injuries are of a non-surgical nature but may involve the wearing of a splint or plaster cast. Whatever the injury, toes can be slow to heal and will cause almost constant discomfort during the recovery period, having an impact on your ability to perform your daily activities.
