Have you broken your arm in an accident that was caused by somebody else? Perhaps you tripped on a broken kerb or fell from broken scaffolding whilst working on a construction site. You could find you are eligible to claim personal injury compensation within three years of your accident, and Accident Advice Helpline could help you. When it comes to making a claim, pictures of a broken arm can provide helpful evidence in support of your claim, so it’s a good idea to photograph your injuries, if you can.
Do I need pictures of a broken arm to claim compensation?
Pictures of a broken arm are not essential in order to make a personal injury claim. Whilst these can be very helpful during the claims process, you don’t need to take pictures of your injuries in order to be eligible to make a claim for compensation. When you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline, our lawyers will liaise with the medical professionals responsible for your treatment in order to get a copy of your medical report. This will serve as valuable evidence in support of your claim, however minor or serious your fracture.
The most important thing after an accident is to ensure that you get the medical treatment you need, and it’s often not until later that you stop to think about taking pictures of a broken arm. If you have photographic evidence of your injuries, that’s great, but if you don’t then a medical report and/or witness statements from anybody who witnessed your accident will usually suffice.
