Bone fractures have a variety of symptoms, from pain and swelling to bruising, potential deformities, and the inability to support weight with the affected limb. This latter symptom often results in the injured party being unable to work or go about their normal daily business.
In many cases, a bone fracture is the direct result of falling, tripping or slipping accidents in public places. From loss of earnings if the bread winner of a family is injured by tripping, to the cost of child care if a mother suffers an accidental injury by slipping, the result is the same. A simple incident like slipping on wet flooring in a supermarket, for instance, can create serious financial difficulties for the injured individual.
For this reason, it is wise to consider claiming for compensation. All too often, individuals suffering from the results of accidents in public places refrain from claiming compensation because they do not want to be seen as money-grabbing people trying to make money out of an unfortunate incident.
Why you should claim for compensation
The trouble is, while your income may be reduced during your recovery from your slipping or tripping injury, your bills do not stop. They may, as a matter of fact, be added to by medical bills for treatments, medications, and so forth. In other words, the gap of the funds you have coming in and those going out will grow, causing you ever more stress on top of the trauma you are already experiencing.
Another reason to claim personal injury compensation
In addition, if your accidental injury was the result of negligence by a supermarket, your employer, or someone else, another person may sooner or later be injured in the same manner. Making a compensation claim will result in an investigation that could ultimately lead to conditions being improved, thereby preventing others from getting hurt.
