How much could your Metatarsal Injury Claim be worth?

If you've suffered a metatarsal break or injury in an accident that wasn't your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. Here at PSR Personal Injury Solicitors, we have helped thousands of clients throughout the UK claim compensation for metatarsal injuries caused by other people's negligence.

Injuries to the metatarsal bones, which are five bones located in the feet, can cause serious pain. Given their location, they can also be extremely debilitating; pain in the feet can prevent patients from walking, carrying out daily tasks, or even going to work.

While we understand that no amount of money will ever undo the pain and discomfort that your injury will have caused you to suffer, we know first-hand how a financial sum can help victims to contend with some of the financial costs that are associated with suffering metatarsal injuries.

For example, payments can be given to cover wages lost due to absence from work, or to fund rehabilitative treatments. If you've suffered a metatarsal injury in an accident that wasn't your fault, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

Beginning a claim can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. At PSR Solicitors, we strive to provide our clients with an honest and open no-win, no-fee service. To find out more about whether you have a case, contact a member of our team today for a free, no-obligation discussion.

Our friendly solicitors will speak openly and honestly about your situation and the options that you have available to you. We'll tell you plainly and simply if we think you have a claim and provide you with a dedicated legal professional who'll work with you throughout your case.

So, whether you're looking for a confidential chat about your personal circumstances and how you could go about claiming compensation, or you want to begin a claim right away, we're here for you.

Metatarsal Injury Compensation Claim Values

If you’re considering making a claim for a metatarsal break or fracture, you’ll likely be wondering how much compensation you could expect to receive. Unfortunately, predicting with accuracy how much money you could be awarded is difficult because every compensation case is judged uniquely on its own circumstances.

As such, it’s possible that individuals with seemingly very similar situations could be awarded differing amounts of compensation. To help you estimate how much you could be given, our experienced solicitors have collated the below compensation calculator.

However, if you’re looking for a more tailored estimation, contact us today to discuss your case and be advised by one of our dedicated team members.

Compensation Guide

Metatarsal Injuries

Moderate Metatarsal Fracture

Even moderate metatarsal fractures can be incredibly painful, disrupting a victim’s ability to move freely, carry out every-day tasks and go to work. Symptoms usually only persist for a relatively short period of time, with a full recovery eventually being achieved.

Up to £8,500

Serious Metatarsal Fractures 

Serious metatarsal breaks and fractures are usually defined as those which involve more than one of the metatarsal bones. Unlike moderate injuries, which tend to heal fully over time, serious fractures can have long-term implications, such as chronic discomfort or pain, or a persistent loss of balance.

£7,500 - £12,500

Severe Metatarsal Fractures

A severe metatarsal injury is likely to be one which results in persistent injury. Symptoms such as immobility, pain, and loss of balance are likely to persist in the long-term, even after treatment to fix the fracture. While most severe cases do ease after time, they may cause chronic pain for an extended period, and perhaps some permanent discomfort in the future.

£10,960 - £18,480

Amputations due to Metatarsal Fractures

Tragically, there are cases where the injuries sustained by the victim are too severe to be treated effectively and amputation - of either the entire foot or some/all of the toes - is the only option available to doctors. These types of injuries are extreme, and often occur as a result of road traffic accidents, accidents at work (such as feet being crushed by machinery), or foot impalements.

£23,000 (per toe) - £96,150 (foot) 

*The above are guidelines from the Judicial Review College and as such should only be seen as estimates. Your specific compensation amount may differ based on your circumstances.

If you have suffered a metatarsal injury, we are here for you. Whether your injury is severe or moderate, our solicitors are here to listen to your case and offer bespoke help and advice.

Metatarsal Anatomy

The metatarsal bones, or metatarsus, are a group of five bones in the foot. They are located between the middle of the foot and the toes and can be seen stretching beneath the skin. In medical texts, the bones are often designated by Roman numerals, with the bone closest to the big toe being considered the first. As the bones move from first, to second, to third, to fourth and then, finally, to fifth, they decrease in size. Interestingly, these bones are almost identical in style and function to the metacarpal bones of the hands that stretch from the edge of the wrist to the fingers.

Although the metatarsal bones are some of the smallest in the human body, they are immensely important, supporting our body weight when we stand. Any damage sustained to those bones can thus result in a loss of mobility, which can be psychologically as well as physically taxing for the affected individual. Additionally, damage caused to these bones can lead to chronic pain, which can sadly persist even after the injury has been dealt with.

Road Traffic Accidents

Road traffic accidents occur commonly in the UK and are a frequent cause of moderate to severe metatarsal breaks and fractures. If you have suffered a broken metatarsus in a road traffic accident that wasn't your fault, contact our team today to learn how we could support you in making a claim for compensation. Sadly, injuries sustained in road traffic accidents are often serious, and most people experience more than one injury. Every year, around 11,000 people are seriously injured in car accidents in the UK, and a further 44,000 are moderately or slightly injured. Whichever category you fall into, we want to hear from you. Our dedicated personal injury solicitors are on-hand now to fight for your compensation.

Metatarsal injuries can occur as a result of the feet being trapped during a collision, or, in the case of pedestrians, being crushed by oncoming cars. Over the years, our tenacious and diligent solicitors have gained a formidable reputation in their personal injury work for their successful representation of hundreds of road traffic accident victims. In the worst case, the injuries you have sustained in your accident could affect you for life, and a compensation payout could help you to re-build your life after your terrible experience.

Whatever type of injuries you suffered in a road traffic accident, contact our friendly team of solicitors today.

Metatarsal Injuries in the Workplace

Every year, thousands of people are tragically injured in work-place accidents, many of which are a direct result of an employer's negligence. Metatarsal injuries sustained in the work-place often occur because of accidents involving machinery, such as fork-lift trucks or other machinery, or when heavy materials are dropped on the feet.

Depending on how you have been injured in the workplace, your metatarsal injury may range in severity from moderate to serious. It may involve more than one bone or have caused such serious damage that surgery has been required and long-term complications are expected to occur. Alternatively, suffering may be relatively short-term, and you may have suffered pain or lost earnings that compensation could help you to recuperate. No matter how you've been injured, our team at PSR Solicitors want to hear from you. Everyone has the right to go to work and be as safe as possible, and we'll support you to claim compensation if your right to a safe working life has been undermined by another person's negligence.

We know that bringing a case against an employer can be emotionally difficult, particularly if you're still working for them, which is why we'll be with you every step of the way to guide you through the process with honest and transparent information. We'll work on your behalf throughout the proceedings, saving you from as much additional stress as possible. It's important to remember that your employer has a legal duty to protect you from harm, and insurance in place to cover any court costs that may arise because of an accident.

Over the years, we have successfully represented thousands of clients who have been injured in workplace accidents, helping them through the daunting process of making a claim and securing the compensation that they deserve. To find out more about how we could help you, contact us today.

Metatarsal Injuries caused by Slips, Trips and Falls

Slips, trips and falls can occur in a variety of settings, and can cause metatarsal breaks and injuries. If you have slipped, tripped, or fallen in the street, in a hospital, or in a shopping centre or similar public place, you may be able to claim compensation if it can be shown that your slip, trip or fall was the direct result of someone else's failure to properly maintain a specific area. For example, someone who suffered a metatarsal fracture whilst tripping over a curb that has not been trimmed to a proper height could claim compensation from the council.

Alternatively, someone who suffered an injury after falling down a public flight of stairs that were poorly lit, were not properly maintained, or lacked a functioning banister or hand-rail could make a claim for compensation against the person or persons responsible for maintaining the staircase.

Slips occur frequently when individuals slip on wet surfaces or surfaces on which a liquid has been spilled and not cleaned up. In places such as supermarkets, the onus is on the supermarket's workers to ensure that any wet floors are adequately signposted, and any spills are quickly cleaned up to minimise the risk of injury to other people. If you have slipped on a floor that has not been signposted or properly cleaned, you could make a claim for compensation.

Over the years, our expert legal professionals have helped thousands of clients claim compensation for slips, trips, and falls. The injuries caused by these types of accidents can be extremely serious, and metatarsal injuries can occur frequently if the foot is twisted or banged.
