Broken Bone Claims
Many of us will have experienced a broken bone at some point, often during childhood. Back then, when your body was younger and your bones were still growing, the injury seemed minor with a full recovery usually being achieved within a couple of months.
Unfortunately, a broken bone injury, particularly when you are an adult, is not always that straightforward and there can be complications.
Whilst some simple fractures can be treated by wearing a splint or a plaster case until the bone heals, more complicated fractures will require surgery to fix the fracture. This may involve the use of metal screws, pins, rods or plates to hold the bone in place.
Can I make a claim for broken bones?
You may be eligible to submit a claim for broken bones, if you have suffered such an injury, as a result of somebody else’s negligence. Common accidents which lead to breaking a bone due as a result of another person’s actions or carelessness, include:
- Slips, trips or falls on wet or uneven ground, on public or private land/property.
- Involvement in a car accident
- Injuries from defective work machinery
- Being the victim of an assault
- Getting injured whilst playing sport
What kind of broken bone injuries are there?
There are many different types of fracture injuries some of which are more serious than others. The least severe type of fracture is an undisplaced closed fracture where the bones have not moved out of place, followed by a displaced open fracture where the bones have moved and have pierced the skin. The worst type of fracture is a comminuted fracture where the bone is in many pieces and may be very difficult to fix.
How much compensation will I receive for a broken bones claim?
