    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Have you had a broken arm and leg at the same time?


    What would be worse than a broken arm, do you think? Some people would say a broken leg would be worse, as you couldn’t walk around very easily without crutches. But there is one thing worse than each of these, and that is to suffer a broken arm and leg at the same time.

    For instance, you couldn’t use crutches as one of your arms would be broken and in plaster. Just imagine how that would be. You may not get around very easily, or at all, for some weeks. It would be difficult to find ways to live your daily life while in this situation, and receiving help would be essential.

    Suffering from both a broken arm and leg at the same time?

    This combination of injuries could potentially occur if you experience a nasty fall, perhaps from height. It might also happen if you are involved in a road accident, whether you are in a car or other vehicle, or if you are hit while crossing the road. A cyclist who is struck by another vehicle might also suffer multiple injuries like these.

    Obviously, experiencing these injuries together is more problematic than simply having one of them. You cannot move around very easily and in fact some people might be confined to a wheelchair for a time. A lot depends on whether you can wear a boot for your broken leg, which could mean you could put some weight on it to walk around a bit.

    See if you could claim a compensation award

    So, if you have suffered a broken arm and leg at the same time in the past three years, you could still make a claim for compensation. If a third party caused the accident that left you with those injuries, it is not too late to find out more.
