Broken Bones & Fractures

If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, suffering from a broken or fractured bone as a result, don’t worry – we’re here to help. At Smith Jones Solicitors we specialise in getting you the help, rehabilitation and injury compensation you deserve.

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.

If you have been affected by a fracture and wish to make a claim for a broken bone or fracture, we will always bear in mind how the accident has affected your everyday life, your ability to work and your dependence on others.

When seeking compensation, we will look to obtain a settlement which takes into account the following:

 

  • The physical injuries suffered and the lasting effects of these
  • Loss of earnings due to being unable to work, or work at a limited capacity
  • Unexpected expenses incurred as a result of the injuries
  • The costs for rehabilitation
  • Mobility aids and home modifications.

LONG TERM IMPACT OF BROKEN/FRACTURED BONES

There can be far-reaching and serious injuries 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 settling your claim.
