Foot and toe injuries can be severely debilitating. If your foot or feet have been injured through no fault of your own, our personal injury solicitors may be able to help you claim.
Although foot and toe injuries are less common than, say, leg injuries, they can affect your mobility and lifestyle just as much. The law takes this into consideration; after all, foot amputation can affect your life just as much as leg amputation.
Your foot or toe can be injured through a trip or fall over something that shouldn't be there – for example, an unmarked spill in a supermarket. You could also sustain an injury at work, as the result of something falling on your feet or a fall from height.
Compensation is usually in relation to the degree or permanency of damage, immobility, disfigurement or pain.
Please be aware that the information below is for your guidance only. The level of compensation you obtain will largely be determined by the quality and experience of the firm you decide to instruct. Don't leave this to chance - contact Lawford Kidd for independently acrredited personal injury advice.
