Common Foot Injuries Sustained During Car Crashes
People who have been in car crashes are likely to experience injuries to
the lower extremities, especially the legs, feet, and ankles. This is
true regardless of the degree of damage done to your vehicle or the nature
of your accident. Even a minor rear-end collision could leave you with
a severe foot or ankle injury.
If you have been in a car accident, keep an eye out for signs of any of
these common foot and ankle injuries, which have been known to affect
people involved in auto collisions:
- Broken bones and multiple foot fractures
- Sprains, strains, and bruising of cartilage or tissues
- Evidence of a damaged meniscus
- Signs of tearing in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the ankle and
back of the leg
- Signs of tearing in the medial collateral ligament (MCL) in the knee and the shin
You may also experience severe injuries, such as amputation, major burns,
punctures, etc. However, even if your foot or ankle injuries or not relatively
serious, seeking treatment is imperative to preserving mobility and pain-free motion.
