    How a broken bone happens


    Are you wondering how a broken bone happens?

    If you are in an accident that was not your own fault you could easily suffer a broken bone. Many people wonder ‘How a broken bone happens?’ It only takes a heavy impact or excessive twist to break a bone. This could easily happen in a road traffic accident, an accident at work or maybe a slip, trip and fall accident.

    Someone it has happened to will not be wondering how a broken bone happens because they will feel the severe pain that usually accompanies it, and may have a deformed look about the bone that has broken. It may have even broken the skin, in which case keeping it clean is important, to avoid an infection.

    The only way to be certain that you have a broken bone is to have an x-ray. This will not only determine if your bone is broken, but will also let the doctors know what type of break you have. Then they can decide on the correct course of treatment for you.

    Most broken bones happen in accidents, and if the accident that caused yours was the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Claiming compensation for broken bones

    Claiming compensation for broken bones is the same as claiming compensation for any other type of personal injury, and the same basic rules apply:

    • You should have suffered your broken bones in an accident that was not your fault
