Broken Bone and Fracture Claims

Have you experienced an accident or injury that resulted in a broken or fractured bone? If the injury wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to claim fracture compensation.

We understand that experiencing such a traumatic injury can not only be painful, but affect your day-to-day life. Whether you’re left needing rehabilitation or you need to adjust your home in order to cater to the injury, our team are always on-hand to help you claim compensation for broken bones.

Here at 1Solicitors, we have an expert team of personal injury solicitors that can fight for the compensation that you deserve after your accident. Not only do we offer a no-win, no-fee agreement, but we also provide 24/7 legal support when proceeding with fracture claims.

How are Broken Bone and Fracture Claims classified?

There are two types of damage that can happen to your bone which can lead to you be entitled to claim compensation. These are:

  • Fracture claims: Less severe than a broken bone, a fracture occurs when a small crack forms within the bone. This is often referred to as a “hairline break”.
  • Broken bone claims: This happens when your bone breaks or snaps and damages the tissue around the area.

The classification of your injury will need to be established in order to determine your rate of compensation as some injuries can be more painful and take longer to heal than others.

Because the severity of damage to your bones can vary significantly, we always advise that those who suffered with an accident take photographic evidence, wherever possible, to support their broken bone claims.

Bone accident complications

As you may expect, it’s possible to experience complications if you’ve suffered with a fracture or broken bone. This can happen when misaligned bones or fragments of bone cause damage to other areas of the body; mainly the internal organs.

A damaged bone rarely affects the area of the body where it happened. In serious cases, fractured and broken bones can result in long-term injuries such as necrosis, arthritis and difficulty walking.

What are the causes of broken bone claims?

Unfortunately, bones can be broken throughout any type of injury. Simply landing, falling or tripping the wrong way can result in you needing to make a fracture claim.

Our team specialise in handling broken bone claims for compensation and are always on-hand to answer any questions that you have. Whilst we work best with cases in which the accident wasn’t your fault, we may be able to investigate your case further and find a suitable outcome.

How likely am I to be awarded broken bone and fracture compensation?

The likelihood of making a successful fracture claim depends massively on the type of injury and liability of the accident. It’s best to discuss your case with a legal professional to explore your options.

Who can make a claim for fracture compensation?

If you’ve experienced a fracture or broken bone injury that wasn’t through any fault of your own, you may be entitled to claim fracture compensation.

You have three years from the date of the accident to make a broken bone claim, so it’s best to discuss your options with a legal professional as soon as possible.

Establishing liability for Broken Bone and Fracture Claims

In order to make a broken bone claim, you will need to establish liability for the accident. This means that you’ll have to clarify who was at fault and to-blame for the injury you experienced.

Our team of fracture claim solicitors will be able to advise on the best method for proceeding with an injury that happened as a result of the negligence of somebody else, and ensure that you’re awarded the fracture compensation that you deserve.

How much can you claim in compensation for broken bones?

When it comes to deciding how much you should receive when making a fracture claim, there are two branches of compensation that you may be awarded. These are:

  • General damages: This is awarded for the pain, suffering and time that you may have spent getting over your broken bone injury.
  • Special damages: Covering any additional expenses such as the loss of earning and travel expenses, you may also be entitled to special damages compensation for broken bones.
