Florida trial lawyer and chiropractic physician, Guy S. DiMartino, discusses foot injuries after a Florida accident.
Foot pain can be unrelenting and impact a person's ability to function on a daily basis. Unless you've experienced sore feet, you probably cannot identify with way a foot condition can impact your life. Imagine feeling pain with every step you take or not being able to climb or go down stairs or a constant throbbing in your foot when you're trying to go to sleep. These are the types of complaints that I hear all the time from folks who have chronic foot problems.
In what ways is the foot injured in accidents?
- The foot gets caught under the brake or gas pedal in a car accident
- The foot is subject to direct trauma from another object
- The injured person lands on their foot the wrong way
Types of foot injuries!
Injuries to the foot can vary from minor injuries to severe, and can include:
- Fractures to any one of the bones in the foot
- Bone bruises/contusions
- Ligament tears
- Tendon injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
Each and every one of these injuries can impact a person's activites of daily living and their ability to function and work or at home. Many insurance adjusters take the position that foot injuries are minor; however, that is simply not true and they need to be educated on how foot injuries can impact an injured person's life on a daily basis.
