All fractures take time to heal. The same applies to a fractured skull. The length of your own fractured skull recovery time will depend on how serious the fracture was, and whether you incurred any brain injuries because of that fracture.
Many fractures heal in their own time and without interference by medical staff. This is the case with simple fractures, where no surgery is required to fix the broken pieces of skull back in place. However, even then, it can take months before the skull is properly healed.
Will you need further treatment?
This depends on what happened to you and whether you have any other symptoms. For example, if you suffered brain damage, you may need speech therapy or other forms of therapy to help you walk again, or perform other tasks. Sometimes, you may need to see a neurologist for a while after your injury, to make sure you are on the road to recovery.
As you can imagine, suffering a fractured skull is a serious injury and one that could affect your daily life in various ways. You may be unable to work for a time, and in rare cases, some people with this injury find they can never go back to work.
Is there a chance to claim compensation when you go through your fractured skull recovery time?
The answer to that question depends on how your accident happened. Were you injured because a third party was negligent? This is the crucial question, because the answer will determine whether any compensation claim made could result in a payment being issued to you. It is also the reason why contacting a personal injury solicitor is such a good idea.
Accident Advice Helpline will help clarify the whole situation for you. We can provide no-obligation advice when you call 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. We will ensure you get the help you need, and if you can proceed with a no-win, no-fee* claim, you’ll have a chance to see whether compensation may be calculated for you. There is no clear sum that may potentially be paid in cases of head injuries, as it is dependent on what happened and how serious your injury was. The outcome of the injury will also be considered, as well as your likely fractured skull recovery time.
