    Bone fracture symptoms: Severe pain

    Bone fracture symptoms: Severe pain

    Following slips, trips and falls, the damage that has been done isn’t always obvious straight away.

    Whether you have been injured at work or have experienced an accident in public, being aware of the symptoms of bone fracture and taking the time to check over your injury and monitoring its progress will help determine if you have a fracture.

    Knowing the signs of bone fractures which may or may not cause severe pain

    There many symptoms of bone fracture, however the symptoms will vary depending on how and where you have become injured.

    Those injured at work or in a public place should seek the advice of a first aider where available, however, it is possible to diagnose a fracture yourself.

    In addition to protruding bones, bruising and deformed limbs, one of the most common symptoms of bone fracture is severe pain.

    Although a small number of fractures do not cause severe pain, many do. It is this intolerable pain – and sometimes inability to use the inflicted body part – that is the telling sign of a bone fracture.

    The cause of your accident

    Slips, trips and falls are ridiculously common and most simply result in bumps, bruises and a blushed face. That being said, when you are involved in an incident that leaves you injured and with broken bones, the situation becomes a little more serious.

    It is relatively easy to move on from a self-inflicted injury, however, if you have suffered harm through no fault of your own you may want to take steps to claim personal injury compensation.

    How to claim for your accident

    First and foremost, the injury-related accident must have occurred in the last three years. In addition, you must be able to prove that you are not accountable for the bone fracture you have sustained.

    If you feel your employer or a company, for example, is to blame for your injury, then you may be able to claim compensation, in consideration of the fact that they have failed to meet their legal obligation to ensure your health and safety.

    Once this is established, law firm, Accident Advice Helpline, will look at the details of your claim and be able to advise if your case is likely to be successful.

    In the case that it is, working on a no win, no fee* basis, your case will be passed to one of their lawyers who will work through the legal process for you, with the primary aim of obtaining the compensation you deserve.
