Serious Foot Injury Due To Accident Legal Rights

Fighting for Injury Victims in Albany and all of Upstate NY

A serious foot injury affects everything you do, from walking to working to driving. Yet insurance companies often view injuries to the ankles and feet as nothing more than the medical bills. You need an experienced lawyer who can get across the full impact.

The law offices of Hacker Murphy is dedicated to helping you through the legal process and maximizing the amount of your compensation. Contact us today if your foot or ankle was damaged through the negligence of some other party.

Broken Foot, Heel Fracture, Broken Ankle, Complex Sprains

Our firm has represented personal injury victims in Albany, the Capital District and Upstate New York for more than 20 years. We routinely handle foot injuries resulting from motor vehicle collisions and from construction accidents or slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents. Our attorneys excel at establishing liability and holding the negligent parties and insurers accountable for full damages.

Having handled our share of foot and ankle injuries, we know how disabling they can be. We know that you may require invasive surgery, now or later, with stabilizing hardware. We know that your range of motion or ability to bear weight may never be the same, or that you might always live with pain in the injured joint or a limp in your gait.

We don’t mention these possible outcomes to alarm or depress you, but to assure you that we consider your case from all angles and carefully document your medical treatment and prognosis when seeking compensation for:

  • Fractures of the ankle bones
  • Shattered or fractured heel (calcaneus)
  • Fractures of the instep (and fallen arches as a result)
  • Sprained ankle
  • Ruptured tendons or torn ligaments
  • Severed toes or foot amputation

We stand up to insurance companies to cover your medical costs, lost income, lasting disability, and pain and suffering.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.
    Contact us now to discuss your case with one of our experienced attorneys.
  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    2. Unless your attorney says otherwise, do not discuss your case with law enforcement.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

    4. Remain calm and courteous. Allow your attorney to speak for you to ensure that your rights are protected and you are given all the benefits afforded to you under the law.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
