Injuries to the feet are more common in Bucks County auto accidents than you might think, states Michael L. Saile, Jr., a Bucks County personal injury lawyer. This is unfortunate considering how much we rely on our feet and ankles for daily mobility. Sprains often require the use of crutches for a time as well as no weight bearing, while a fracture may require surgery for proper bone setting and return of range of motion.
These are some of the most frequently seen car accident foot injuries:
- Ankle Fractures
- (Talar) Fractures
- Lisfranc (Midfoot) Fractures
- Toe Injuries
If you have experienced a foot injury in a Bucks County or Philadelphia area auto accident, you should certainly seek medical help. If you were not transported to a hospital emergency room from the accident scene, see your family doctor as soon as possible. It is important that x-rays be taken or other diagnostic testing be performed as soon as possible so that the appropriate treatment can be administered.
