Compensation in the Case of Foot Injuries   

        Foot injuries in an accident are more common than we think they are. In fact, sustaining a foot injury can be a real handicap as most of us need to be mobile to do all our work, personal or official. And a permanent injury could leave the person with the prospect of using a walking stick or wheelchair for the rest of his life.

        This would explain why compensations for cases of foot injuries are always high. However, there are different types of injuries that a foot can sustain and the compensation is always based on the type of injury.

        A toe injury is considered a minor injury as it does not have a drastic effect on the person's life. Therefore, the compensation for this type of injury is not too high and one can expect something like $2,000 or so. However, as the injury gets severe, the compensation that the person is entitled to also increases in value. For example, you can expect the highest compensation for an injury that results in an amputation of the toes.

        If you entire foot is injured, like a fracture, then you can expect a nice compensation for it. Usually injuries related to the metatarsal are quite common among dancers and sportspersons. This type of fracture takes a long time to heal and invariably, hundred percent recovery is not possible.  In this case, the victim faces a long healing and rehabilitation process, and therefore, the compensation grows in size.

        The maximum compensation, however, is awarded when the foot needs to be amputated. Since is this an irreparable loss, the court will ensure that the person is compensated not just for medical expenses but also for emotional mental trauma the person would suffer and undergo.
