Broken bones can be minor or serious injuries depending on whether you suffer a simple, complex or compound fracture. Age can also be a factor when it comes to recovering from broken bones – elderly people’s bones are more brittle which means not only are they more at risk of breaking bones, in a fall, for example, they’re also likely to take longer to recover from their injuries. It might be that you’ve broken your ankle or your wrist after slipping on an unmarked wet floor, or maybe you’ve suffered crush injuries at work that have led to broken bones.
Whatever has happened, if somebody else is at fault for your accident, you could get broken bones compensation advice from Accident Advice Helpline within three years of your accident.
What injuries have you suffered?
Over the past 15 years, Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of people to claim personal injury compensation, and here are some of the most common injuries we have dealt with claims for when it comes to broken bones:
- Broken wrists or ankles after a slip, trip or fall
- Broken hip
- Broken neck after a fall from height or accident at a leisure centre (such as on a trampoline)
- Broken arm or leg, often after a road traffic accident
- Fractured cheekbone
Whatever has happened, you could get confidential broken bones compensation advice from our team of expert advisors, which could help you decide whether or not to go ahead with a claim. Broken bones can take weeks or even months to heal, and you’ll almost certainly need to take time off work whilst you’re recovering, which can impact your finances. Financial struggles are one of the main reasons people make a claim for personal injury compensation, and we can help you get compensation for your loss of earnings as well as your injuries themselves.
