Plantar Fasciitis refers to a condition where a person experiences heel pain whenever they stand or when they take a walk. It is mostly as a result of strains to the ligament that supports the arch, and it is mostly experienced by people in their middle ages or younger people who are mostly on their feet, like athletes and soldiers. If this condition occurs as a result of work which requires you to be on your feet most of the time, you may be eligible to file a compensation claim from your employers.
How much Compensation Can You Claim?
This type of injury will be compensated according to the extent of the damage and further consequences that result from the injuries. If the injuries limit or affect a person’s ability to walk or drive, then the compensation amount could be higher as it will have affected their lives in a huge way as they will not be able to work. The compensation amounts claimed for can vary and can start from as low as £10,000 up to around £30,000 depending on the severity of the injury.
How to tell the Symptoms and how to get diagnosed?
There are several symptoms associated with plantar fasciitis. People can experience a difficulty whenever they try to bend due to restriction. It is also possible for patients to experience knee pains when they suffer from this type of injury. The soles or heels of the patient’s feet have tender areas on them, and this causes the patients to experience pain, especially when they make their first steps of the day.
If a person experiences these symptoms, they should ensure that they get a proper diagnosis to establish whether they have a claim for compensation. A good doctor should take a look at the full medical history including any details concerning the pain they will have experienced in the past. This will help them look into any pre-existing conditions that may have led to the pain they will be experiencing in their foot. The doctor should then perform a physical examination of the feet to look for any swellings, tender areas, mobility issues and also rule out some other causes of the pain. If the doctor thinks you are suffering from this condition, he/she will order you to undergo an ultrasound scan. This scan will be able to show any thickening present in the heels which will indicate that plantar fasciitis is present.
