Foot, Ankle and Leg Injuries
Unfortunately, injuries to the feet, ankles and legs are some of the more commonly occurring damages suffered in construction accidents, car crashes, falls and various other accidents. Foot, ankle and leg injuries can be especially debilitating because mobility is greatly dependent on their normal functioning. An injury victim’s inability to place weight on body parts ordinarily responsible for supporting their body masses can make walking or even standing without assistance impossible. Moreover, foot, ankle and leg injuries can drastically limit a victim’s capacity to take part in most daily endeavors and physical activities. Victims often face long and painful roads to recovery and may be forced to take time off from work to concentrate on rehabilitation or physical therapy. These types of injuries can result in undue physical, emotional and financial strain on both victims and their families.

Some of the more common injuries to feet, ankles and legs that are suffered in accidents include:
- Broken bones and fractures: Fractures can result from twisting injuries, direct blows or falls. Often the nature and severity of the resulting injuries greatly depend on the type and strength of the force placed on the bones. Breaks and fractures can occur in the feet, ankles and legs.
- Achilles tendon rupture: The Achilles, located in the heal, is the largest tendon in the body. It connects the principal calf muscles to the bone. An Achilles tear can result from the sudden trauma of a fall or other accident.
- Ankle sprains: Ankle ligaments sustain the joint to prevent it from stretching too far to the left or right. A sprained ankle happens when one of those ligaments is overstretched or torn.
- Nerve damage: Severe nerve damage can result in neuropathic pain, a chronic complex pain. Nerve damage commonly occurs in combination with tissue injuries, fractures and amputations. Damaged nerve fibers may cause numbness and tingling. Additionally, damaged nerves may send burning or shooting pain sensations throughout the body.

In some cases, accident victims may be treated by a podiatrist, doctors who specialize in treating both foot and ankle injuries. In other instances, victims may be taken care of by an orthopedist, also known as an orthopedic surgeon. Orthopedic surgeons are certified to treat the entire musculoskeletal system, including legs. Your doctor will be able to diagnose the scope and nature of your injury by conducting an examination or performing an MRI scan or X-ray.
Depending on the severity, foot, ankle and leg injuries may require extensive, time-consuming and lengthy treatment. To recover, some victims may need to use costly medical equipment, take painkillers with undesirable side-effects, undergo multiple surgeries or participate in long-term physical therapy. While recovering, victims may be impaired or bedridden for extensive durations. If left untreated even minor injuries can weaken the feet, ankles and legs over time and cause other future injuries or arthritis.
Accident victims that suffer from foot, ankle or leg injuries may be eligible to pursue personal injury claims against any responsible parties for compensation relating to hospital bills and other medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering and other monetary losses.
