    Accident In County Durham

    Have you experienced an accident in County Durham?

    If you’ve been hurt or experienced an accident in County Durham, you could be left with a variety of injuries.

    Unfortunately, some people still assume that you must have suffered specific types of injuries in order to be eligible to make a claim for compensation. In fact, this isn’t true at all.

    If you’ve been hurt or experienced an accident in County Durham that wasn’t your fault, you could make a claim for numerous types of injuries, including:

    Fractured bones

    Although a fracture doesn’t mean that your bone is actually broken, that doesn’t mean that it’s any less painful.

    Depending on the type of fracture you’ve experienced, you may suffer from pain for a significant amount of time.

    In most cases, sufferers will be advised to wear a cast until the fracture is healed so you could find that your mobility is affected whilst you recover from this type of injury.

    Internal bleeding

    This type of injury can be particularly dangerous as people sometimes don’t realise that they are suffering from it. Often, when a person can’t see any injuries, they assume that they haven’t been hurt or that they are simply suffering from shock. It isn’t until later that they become aware that the pain isn’t lessening or that they feel unwell.

    However, as this type of injury can be very serious, it is important to access medical help as quickly as possible. Often, medical professionals will be able to prevent internal bleeding but you may need to undergo surgery in order for them to do this.

    Sprains and strains

    Although a sprain may not be as serious as a broken bone or internal bleeding, it can be painful nonetheless. In some cases sufferers need to use crutches to get around if they have sprained an ankle or knee so you could find that you’re unable to drive or walk normally for some time after the incident has occurred.

    If you’ve experienced any type of injury as a result of an accident in County Durham, you may want to find out more about obtaining compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered. As long as you weren’t responsible for the accident in County Durham, it’s likely that you’ll be eligible to make a claim so you could have a good chance of obtaining compensation for your injuries.
