Can I claim for a broken leg?

A broken leg can be a debilitating injury, and if you have suffered through one you may be asking yourself the following question: can I claim for a broken leg? The answer is yes, under certain circumstances. The law allows for the recovery of some costs associated with the accident or injury if you were not at fault. That means if someone was negligent, if equipment or material was defective or if it malfunctioned, or if you did not have the training or proper supervision when you suffered your accident or injury, you may be entitled to compensation. There may also be other factors involved, which is why it is always a good idea to contact Accident Advice Helpline for a free assessment of your case.

The hours and days after an accident or injury may be painful and difficult. The recovery period for adults in particular may be slower than anticipated. We are all familiar with the time it takes for a child to recover from a broken leg, but an adult case can be completely different. Depending on the type of break, the age and general health condition of the person, as well as the severity of the injury, recovery can be weeks or even months long. Bones sometimes do not heal and require additional surgeries, or there is physical therapy to contend with to make the leg fully functional and weight-bearing again.
