When can you make a claim for a broken toe?

    To make a valid claim for compensation for your broken toe injury, you must be able to prove that the injury sustained was caused by another’s negligence. In accidents at work however, the company which you work for remains liable even if your injury was sustained by a negligent co-worker. Therefore, following medical assessment and confirmation of your broken toe, it is therefore advisable that you consult a personal injury specialist who can better recommend you on your claim. A personal injury specialist will have extensive knowledge of similar cases and the likely compensation owed given the circumstances of your own case. Furthermore, a personal injury specialist will be able to arrange an independent medical assessment that will detail both your injury and the extent of the damage suffered as this will have an impact on the level of compensation offered.

    What is a toe claim?

    A toe injury can include broken phalanges which is essentially a broken toe digit else tendon or ligament damage. Toe injuries can be extremely painful and cause great difficulty to a sufferer yet are not uncommon. The greatest number of compensation claims for toe injuries results from accidents at work where an employee has sustained an injury through operation of dangerous machinery, handling heavy loads or mishandling dangerous tools. However, where an accident occurs and an individual sustains a toe injury that was not one of their own doing then that individual may have a claim for compensation against the negligent party.

    Types of toe injury:

    • Toe breaks and fractures: This type of injury can be extremely painful and can affect one’s ability to walk. In some circumstances, toe breaks or fractures can render someone incapacitated until the toe is fully healed.
    • Crushed toe injury: This type of injury can cause tendon, ligament, and soft tissue damage alongside a broken or fractured bone. A person may suffer from excruciating pain throughout their entire foot following a crushed toe injury.
    • Amputation of toe: This type of injury is the most severe and can often lead to necrosis of surrounding tissue resulting in the development of gangrene and thus eventual amputation. Greater compensation is often awarded to the amputation of a big toe digit due to its necessitation for balance when walking or standing.
