Claims for Fractured Bones
We specialise in helping victims of injury claim the compensation they deserve
Claims for Fractured Bones
More than 600,000 fractured bones are diagnosed every year in the UK. Some of these are inevitable accidents, while others may be due to debilitating conditions like osteoporosis. A significant proportion, however, result from avoidable accidents that have nothing to do with the victim. The victim has simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and has been injured through no fault of their own. If that sounds familiar, you need to talk to The Compensation Experts as our advisors can help.
What is a Fractured Bone Claim?
If you have suffered a fractured or broken bone due to another party’s error or negligence, you could be entitled to compensation. Broken bones can occur in many ways including:
- Road traffic accident
- Slip, trip, or fall
- Being moved incorrectly in hospital or a nursing home
- At school or work
Fractures are often far from straightforward breaks. They may require surgery in order to set and correct the bone’s placement. They may also need bone grafts, leave scarring if the bone punctures the skin, or require additional treatments such as physiotherapy. Children, whose bones are softer, may suffer a bowing fracture, where the bone bends painfully but does not break. Older patients, or those with more fragile bones, may suffer from a comminute fracture where the bone is crushed. So to give your claim the best chance of success, it is important you engage a personal injury lawyer who understands the variety and implications of different breaks. And who also understands how the law around them works.
Claiming Compensation for a Broken Bone
We work with lawyers who have extensive experience handling compensation claims for broken bones and will actively pursue the best possible outcome for your claim. Calculating compensation for fractures and personal injury varies according to the severity of your injury and also the impact it has had on your daily life. For example, a driver who fractures their elbow and is unable to work for twelve weeks is likely to receive a higher payment than a child who has a clean break on their non-dominant arm. The circumstances around every claim are unique, so your personal injury solicitor will treat you as an individual.
Upfront Payment, or No Win No Fee?
At The Compensation Experts, we offer our clients a No Win No Fee* scheme to take the financial risk out of compensation claims. Rather than pay your legal fees upfront, you and your lawyer will agree on a percentage to be deducted from the compensation they obtain on your behalf. If your claim is unsuccessful, you do not have to pay any legal fees. Compensation claims can be lengthy and expensive however choosing a No Win No Fee agreement will ensure you are not penalised financially for claiming the compensation to which you are entitled.
