A Lawyer Who Will Help You Understand Your Injuries — And Your Legal Case
The foot is a rather amazing part of the body in that it has:
- 26 bones
- Ankle bones, a complex union of long bones of the leg and smaller bones of the forefoot
- More than 100 muscles, ligaments and tendons
- 33 joints
This leaves a lot of room for injuries to occur and it is because of the complexity of the foot that medical treatment is administered by specialists. In many instances, surgical intervention is required to repair the broken bones in the foot and ankle. This is done to protect the shape of the bones to maintain the complex joint structures of the ankle and foot. Unfortunately, the limited blood flow to the foot and ankle and the high likelihood that these small bones will suffer complex, comminuted fractures frequently leads to arthritic degeneration.
An Ankle Or Foot Injury Results In:
- Decreased foot mobility
- Inability to bear weight
- Difficulty wearing shoes
No Matter What Type Of Foot Injury You Suffered, We Are Ready
You will work with a Minnesota personal injury attorney who has extensive experience dealing with ankle and foot injuries that include:
- Broken ankle bones
- Severe sprained ankle
- Multiple compound fractures and crush injuries
- Talus fractures
- Lisfranc fractures
- Metatarsal fractures
- Calcaneal fractures

Let Us Deal With The Insurance Company For Compensation
If the insurance company is refusing to pay benefits, Gabrielson Law Offices, Ltd. can fight for you, negotiating with the insurance company for a settlement or taking your case as far as trial so that you can get the compensation that you need. The insurance companies are concerned with their bottom lines rather than compensating the injured after they are involved in an accident. With the help of your attorney, you can find yourself in a situation where you worry less about costs and concentrate more on your recovery.
