Pages On: Leg Injuries

Leg injuries can vary in severity, from broken toes to double leg amputations. However, because we use them so regularly, any injury to the legs can render us immobile — taking away our freedom to enjoy life, as well as our access to work.

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
