A broken ankle is an extremely painful injury. It requires immediate emergency treatment in an urgent care center or emergency room facility. While there are many reasons that a negligent act might lead to a broken ankle, among the most common acts of negligence that lead to a broken ankle is reckless driving. Negligent drivers cover our roads on an annual basis with a blatant lack of regard for other human life. Some drivers drive drunk and end up killing other drivers. Others feel that it’s more important to post on Facebook than it is to drive safely, so they post pictures online while driving and end up killing or gravely injuring another person. If you or a loved one suffered and injury because of the negligence of another party, contact our broken ankle attorneys in Los Angeles.
A broken ankle is an injury that can lead to a lifetime of consequences. Like any other orthopedic injury, it’s going to require months or even years of care, and it’s likely that a broken ankle will result in ongoing medical treatment for the problem, even after it’s healed. If the broken ankle is bad enough, it will cause chronic pain, even after the initial injury has been treated. That’s why personal injury lawyers are so aggressive when they pursue damages from orthopedic injuries. They often have features of ongoing pain and suffering that make them held to a higher dollar amount of compensation.
If you’ve had your ankle broken in a car accident or other form of personal injury that someone else is responsible for, you will experience a lot of consequences, such as:
– Throbbing pain
– Swelling to the ankle
– Inability to move the ankle the way a healthy person can
– Emotional trauma due to suffering from pain
– High medical bills to treat the ankle pain and lack of mobility
