Suffering a foot injury can not only be painful but also incredibly disruptive to your everyday life. You may be unable to get around, work, drive or enjoy your hobbies. At Irwin Mitchell, our solicitors understand how frustrating this can be, which is why we specialise in foot injury compensation claims.

How To Make A Foot Injury Claim

Start by calling us on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. We’ll go through how the injury happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has been affected.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

Our specialist teams can help you to claim for:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken foot
  • Bursitis
  • Non-freezing cold injury
  • Crush injuries
  • Amputation.

Foot injuries may result in temporary loss of income or inability to carry out daily activities, or they can be life-changing. We understand how helpless you may feel when your mobility is compromised, which is why we are here to fight for your compensation.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Foot Injury Claim?

In most cases, the cut-off point is three years after the date of the injury. There are some exceptions to these time limits however, for example criminal assault claims, where the time limit is two years. We always encourage you to make a claim as soon as possible, as this helps us gather the most accurate evidence to support your claim.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Foot Injury?

As every case is different, there are no standard compensation amounts for foot injuries. Along with the severity of the damage, we’ll assess your claim based on:

  • Your loss of earnings or need to retrain
  • Loss of mobility or function in the foot
  • Difficulty walking
  • Inability to carry out leisure activities
  • The impact on your loved ones
  • Whether or not you’ll need ongoing treatment.

Our serious injury team often deals with life-changing injuries such as amputation. If needed, we can team you up with our support and rehabilitation co-coordinators who can support you and help you access rehabilitation.

No Win No Fee Foot Injury Claims

Many of our foot injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay most of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your final compensation.

Why Choose Us?

From sprains and strains to more serious injuries such as a crushed foot, our leading lawyers up and down the country work on personal injury claims just like yours.

If needed, we’ll guide you through rehabilitation and help with interim compensation payments. Our compassionate team has decades of experience in supporting personal injury claims and we’ve secured billions of pounds in settlements. We understand that the effects of a foot injury extend far beyond physical pain, which is why we’ll fight to get you the best settlement possible.

Sheffield conveyancers are simply the best!

Fast friendly and efficient service from Sheffield team all dealt with electronically due to distance with buying on south coast... The price quoted was fair, fixed and compared favourably against other large firms. Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone.
