Fractured & Broken Bone Claims

Broken or fractured bones can occur as a result of a variety of different accidents and can range from relatively minor injuries to the most serious. Severe injuries can even result in arthritis, compartment syndrome or a bone infection (osteomyelitis). These injuries can be life-changing for the victim, especially if it’s the dominant limb which is affected.

 

Not only do our bones support and protect the various organs of the human body but they also come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, serve multiple functions, produce both red and white blood cells … and yet can still very easily be broken! In essence, there are three different types of break which the bone might sustain namely:

  1. A greenstick fracture – where the bone becomes bent but doesn’t break completely,
  2. A simple fracture – where the bone breaks but stays inside the skin, and
  3. A compound fracture – where the broken ends of the bone sticking out through the skin.

 

With over 200 bones in the human body, it’s a commonly accepted fact that they’re more than capable of breaking at any time and can often lead to very serious consequences – for example, a break on the back can also damage the spinal cord and thus lead to permanent paralysis.

 

For this reason, broken bones should never be underestimated since the underlying effect of this can be quite significant. Fortunately, most broken bones (such as arms, fingers and even legs) can be very quickly mended given a little time and external interventions (such as physiotherapy) although they’re certainly well worth looking after!

Long-Term Impacts of Broken / Fractured Bones

There can be far-reaching and serious as a result of a broken bone or fracture, such as:

  • Necrosis caused to tissue around injury
  • Frequent or constant pain
  • Scarring as a result of surgery
  • Challenges in day-to-day life, walking, interacting with objects and surfaces
  • Increased chance of arthritis
  • Loss of mobility

 

Our personal injury specialists will ensure that you are checked and assessed for the risk of any of these long-term impacts. This assessment will result in a medical report being undertaken which will allow all of your injuries, any potential losses, and future needs to be taken into consideration when claiming compensation for a serious injury.
