What sort of injury details will my accident claims solicitors in Ashby-de-la-zouch case need?
You will need to supply some details about your accident and how the injury occurred. For broken leg injuries the cause is often sporting accidents and so you will be supplying details about the faulty equipment, lack of training or supersion that caused the accident. In road traffic accidents all three bones in the leg can break at once as the legs are smashed up against the dash board. In this sort of injury you would be supplying details of the other vehicles involved, the speeds that they were travelling at and the road and weather conditions at the time. Other broken leg injuries are caused by falls and in these cases you would be supplying details about how you fell. For example, did you trip over something that should not have been there?
What about the medical details?
Your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury solicitor will be collecting details from the doctors that treated you for your broken leg. You will also supply some further details about how the injury is impacting your life. Then you will attend a local appointment with a medical expert who will prepare a medical assessment report on you injuries. At first your leg may have been very painful and this pain may have gotten worse when you have moved. There is also likely to be swelling and tenderness in the affected area. There may be an obvious deformity in the shape of the leg.
Most broken legs are treated by encasing them in plaster and recovery is achieved once the plaster is removed. However, there are some complications that can occur and they include poor or delayed healing – this can happen in severe fractures because there is a lack of blood flowing to the bone.
