  • A Car Accident Can Cause Ankle Fracture: Do You Need Surgery?

    July 20, 2018

    Broken bones in the ankle result in the condition termed “ankle fracture.” This results when one or more of the bones that comprise the ankle-joint are broken. Different types of damage can occur, ranging from a simple break in a single bone that will not restrict your mobility, to multiple fractures that could result in the patient having to avoid putting weight on the ankle for a long time.

    Broken bones result in making the joint unstable and unable to bear weight. Usually, in ankle joint fractures, tendons, ligaments and surrounding muscles and soft tissues also suffer damage. This makes it a very painful condition. The victim is unable to move freely, continue their normal pattern or life, commute to work, play sports or enjoy life as before. It restricts them from moving freely and they may have to use crutches or walking sticks to help them move around the home and work-place. In many cases the pain is so severe that they have to take heavy doses of painkillers that make them drowsy and unable to work. Surgery may be needed to realign the bones properly and prevent further damage. You may also need bone grafting, implanting of plates, screws, pins etc. if the bone has been damaged beyond repair.

    During this time, accident victims and their families suffer enormous physical, financial and emotional trauma. Car-accident victims are entitled under Ontario laws to seek statutory benefits and also file personal injury suits against those who were responsible for the accident for compensation. Contact an experienced car accident lawyer immediately.
