There are 26 bones and 33 joints in the human foot, making it particularly vulnerable to injury. Fractures of the foot are not only painful, they drastically compromise your mobility. If your foot was broken as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to take legal action to ensure you are fully compensated for your medical expenses.
While most lawsuits over broken foot injuries stem from car accidents or workplace injuries, don’t assume a broken foot caused by a misstep is entirely your own fault. Often, there are liable parties you may not have even considered. Personal injury attorney Steve Caya, will look into the circumstances surrounding your accident to identify all those who may be partly responsible for your injury.

There’s no single value assigned to foot injury settlements – the final amount depends on the precise nature of your foot injuries, medical bills and projected medical costs, lost wages, and more than anything: the quality of your attorney.

How To Get The Best Settlement From Broken Foot Injuries
Record & preserve evidence of your broken foot
Evidence is the most important aspect of determining liability. The other party’s insurance and legal team will do whatever they can to prove your fault.
Seek medical attention
Get medical treatment, even if you're not sure of the extent of your broken foot.
Hire a personal injury lawyer
The other party’s insurance team is going to fight to pay as little as they can. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney like Steve Caya will help ensure no stone is left unturned to get you the settlement you deserve.
Document your expenses
Having a complete list of your financial losses due to your injury is the best way to help your attorney determine the settlement you deserve.
Do not talk to their insurance company
After your claim is filed, the other party’s insurance will begin an investigation to determine liability. It is in their best interest to put any percentage of fault they can on the victim. They will use everything they can from your conversations to do so. Leave any contact with them to your experienced attorney.
Negotiate a settlement
Though difficult in some cases, it is important to remain patient and allow your lawyer to negotiate the best possible settlement. Insurance companies will do what they can to get you to quickly accept their first offer, even more so if you are experiencing financial hardships and need that money quickly. Steve Caya and his experienced team will fight for every dollar you deserve.
Motorcycle foot injuries
Motorcycle accidents frequently cause injury to the lower extremities, especially the feet. The most common motorcycle foot injury is a broken metatarsal (foot bone). The toes and calcaneus (heel bone) can also be fractured or crushed, especially in crashes where the motorcycle winds up on top of your foot.
Though rarely fatal, a broken foot from a motorcycle accident often happens along with other, possibly more serious injuries. Any type of foot injury from a motorcycle crash requires prompt medical care in order to avoid long-term or permanent disability.
A particularly traumatic foot injury occurring in motorcycle accidents is a degloved or skinned foot, often happening to riders wearing flip flops or other inappropriate footwear. Motorcycle boots greatly reduce the odds of your feet suffering scrapes, lacerations and worse in the event of a crash.
No matter the type of motorcycle foot injury, if the accident was the result of another person’s negligence you may be entitled to significant compensation.
