Foot Injuries After A Florida Accident!

Posted by Guy DiMartino | Mar 01, 2013 | 0 Comments

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.
