Vancouver Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Offer Insights on Managing Life With a Limp
Our Vancouver pedestrian accident attorneys can help you (or someone you love) aggressively seek compensation, manage ICBC, and deal with life’s crazy logistics in the wake of what happened to you.
Unfortunately, we cannot fix everything.
For instance, whether a car hit you in a parking garage, or a bus struck you in an intersection, you may have developed a limp or other serious leg injury.
A limp is not the worst thing in the world, but it can impede your day-to-day activities—even if you are not a professional athlete or a person who needs to walk, run, or lift to make a living.
Also, having a limp can lead to unfortunate complications, because of how you compensate for the injury. For instance, perhaps you hurt your right foot. Now, you are favoring your left foot, whenever you walk. If you put too much awkward pressure and strain on your left foot, you can damage the soft tissues, ligaments, and bones in your left leg. Likewise, to get over the pain of the limp, you might take too much ibuprofen or other pain relievers. This can lead to medical complications, such as stomach trouble and possible overdose.
Obviously, this is not a medical blog, so we cannot help you with medical questions.
However, if you walked away from your Vancouver pedestrian accident with a limp, you should really consider talking to an attorney about your next steps.
