Minnesota Broken Foot Lawyer
The foot plays a very important role in your everyday life. It is responsible for support, balance and mobility. You need your foot to walk, to run and, in most instances, to work. If your foot is out of commission, then so are you. Unfortunately foot injuries are common, especially in work related accidents, slip and fall incidents and car and truck accidents. Often your foot will be crushed due to the sheer impact after a crash or a fall. If you have injured your foot due to the negligence of someone else, whether on the road, at work, or anywhere else, then contact McEwen & Kestner, PLLC to discuss your options.
Fractures and Broken Foot Injuries
Our lawyers are prepared to handle all foot related injuries you have sustained due to an accident caused by the negligence of someone else. We specialize in the following foot injuries:
- Fractures, including lisfranc fracture, metatarsal fracture and calcaneal fracture
- Broken foot or broken ankle bones
- Ankle fractures including trimalleolar fractures and talus fractures
Complications from a Foot Accident
In addition to the pain and suffering you will feel before, during and after the surgery, your foot may never be completely healed. It is not uncommon for foot injuries to result in lifelong complications including impaired foot function, loss of range of motion, chronic pain, bone collapse and arthritis. You may need to modify your daily activities or wear a foot brace anytime you want to go out for a run.
Foot Injury Treatment
If you have injured your foot you will most likely need to undergo surgery in order to correct the problem. Foot surgery involves several cat scans, x-rays and specialists meetings. Some of the surgeries you can expect include the following:
- Ankle fusion
- Joint fusion
- Ankle replacement surgery
- Mid foot fusion
- Bone grafting
You will most likely need to wear a cast for two months and will not be able to put weight on the foot for several weeks. This means you will most likely be off work and need to hire someone to help around the house, especially if you have children. All of this can add up to several unpaid bills as well as physical pain and emotional strain for your entire family. Why should you have to suffer financially as well as physically for someone else’s mistake?

Our lawyers will work tirelessly to ensure you are fully compensated for your accident.
