Talus Fracture Compensation Claim Information
Talus fracture is a severe injury that can cause long term or even permanent consequences to your health. The talus is the bone that makes up the lower part of your lower ankle joint, whilst the fibula and tibia bones make up the upper part. The talus is located above the calcareous bone which together form the subtalar joint. The joint is essential for walking, particularly in uneven places and thus, injury to the talus can cause further difficulty when walking.
How Do Talus Fracture Accidents Happen?
A talus injury can occur in any part of the bone but in most instances, it breaks in the neck (mid-portion) and on the outside of the bone. When it breaks on the outside, it is called a lateral process, which occurs when you force your ankle out to the side. The injury is classified in terms of its severity based on how much the affected part has moved out of its ordinary position. We hear from many people who have sustained talus fractures at work, or even during their everyday activities. If the accident was not your fault, we’re here to get you the money you deserve.
