A pilon fracture occurs in the ankle region and affects the bottom of the tibia (shinbone). In some cases, both the bottom of the tibia and the fibula are fractured near the ankle. The “pilon” is derived from the French language. It means “pestle”. A pestle is combined with a mortar in order to pound and crush substance such as leaves and nuts. In this case, the pilon refers to process of the bone that was crushed. Pilon fractures usually occur after a heavy impact injury such as during a fall or a car accident.
Pilon fractures can also occur from the results of medical negligence pertaining to the monitoring of adverse pharmaceutical side effects that can negatively alter a victim’s bone density. Which can thus increase a victim’s chances of receiving a pilon fracture. If you are a victim of a pilon fracture due to medical negligence or circumstances that were not of your instigation, you may be eligible to seek financial compensation for your claims.
How much compensation can you claim?
Victims of a pilon fracture due to medical negligence or circumstances that were not of their instigation can obtain in many cases five hundred thousand euros. Depending on how severe your injury was, how much financial loss resulted from your injury, and who committed the injury will affect the results of your compensation. An example of a successful claim for financial compensation would be a man named William (not his real name).
William was driving down a highway when suddenly a driver from a truck company crashed into him. He suffered a sever pilon fracture that resulted in him having to be airlifted to a hospital. The painful victim suffered a left pilon fraction in their fibula and a compound fraction in their tibia. The surgery cost about two hundred and thirty thousand euros.
However, William worked as a cook and he would not be able to work for at least ten weeks. The case settled before trail for eight hundred thousand euros.
