We don’t think about the important role our ankles serve until something happens that we can’t use them anymore. A broken ankle can be debilitating and very painful for quite some time because such an injury takes a long time to heal. Even after it heals, it may not be the same as it was, so extensive therapy may be needed to restore as much function as possible.
If your broken ankle is the result of someone else’s negligence, then you need the representation of an experienced Mankato personal injury lawyer to pursue that party for the compensation you deserve. The compensation can cover present and future medical expenses, present and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
We Will Aggressively Pursue Those Responsible
When you come to Farrish Johnson Law Office, CHTD to help you pursue the responsible party, you will receive the aggressive advocacy that you deserve.
Common accident types that lead to broken ankles are:
- Automobile crashes
- Slips and falls
- Falling objects that crush the ankle
- Pinning accidents where the ankle becomes pinned between objects
These accidents can lead to two different types of fractures. They are the trimalleolar fracture and the talus fracture. The ankle is so complex that surgery may be needed more than once in order to restore the ankle’s functionality. Unfortunately, surgery doesn’t always completely fix the ankle.
In addition to the break, there may be soft tissue injury, such as torn ligaments, which can make the healing process take even longer. No matter the type of break or how extensive the injury, prompt care is needed to ensure the ankle heals correctly rather than out of alignment.
