Minnesota Lisfranc Fracture Attorney

Often initially mistaken for a sprain, a Lisfranc fracture occurs in the arch of your foot (also known as the mid-foot) where metatarsals extend to the toes.  Ligaments hold most of the bones in the mid-foot in place, extending across and down the foot.  The only exception is between the first and second metatarsal which is an area more susceptible to a dislocation or fracture.

The three types of Lisfranc fractures are:

  • Divergent – metatarsal fractures are spread in various directions within the foot;
  • Homolateral – all five metatarsals are fractured in the same direction;
  • Isolated – only one or two metatarsals are fractured.

X-rays, and in some cases CT scans or MRI’s, can be taken to diagnose a Lisfranc fracture.  It is important to receive medical assistance immediately, as with any injury, because a Lisfranc fracture that goes undiagnosed can result in damage to your joints, nerve cells and blood vessels.

If you have a Lisfranc fracture, chances are you will require surgery where screws are inserted into the bones across the joints.  If screws are inserted through the skin then doctors may use an external fixator.

Recovery means the foot will be in a cast for approximately 6-8 weeks and will be unable to support any kind of weight.  Once the cast is removed, doctors may recommend using a rigid arch support or walking brace, in addition to doing foot exercises to build strength so you can walk again.

If you are suffering from a Lisfranc fracture because of someone else’s negligence, contact Tarshish Cody, PLC today and speak to one of our highly experienced personal injury attorneys.  We pride ourselves on putting our clients first and we are dedicated to fighting every angle so you receive the compensation you deserve.  Call us today at 612-808-8999 or fill out the free case evaluation form.
