Have you broken your hand before?
If you have ever broken your hand, then you know just how painful it can be afterward and not just when it first happens. Almost every movement causes the small bones to grind against each other, and the pain can be extremely intense.
If the affected hand is the one that you use most often then things are even more difficult, as you have to adapt to having to rely on the other one for day to day tasks.
Personal injury compensation
Pain and suffering aside, if the accident leading to you having a broken hand was not your fault, then it can ‘feel’ even worse – as though insult were just being added to injury. What can you do though, if the accident was not your fault?
There are law firms, such as Accident Advice Helpline, whose sole intention is to provide legal representation to those who have been hurt in accidents that were the fault of a third party. Since the dawn of the ‘no win, no fee’ era (which was introduced to ensure that those that could not normally afford a lawyer, received the legal representation that they deserved).
There are certain criteria to being able to make use of this kind of legal service though, and they are set out here…
- The accident that caused your injury must not have been your fault
- No more than three years may have passed between accident and claim
- Medical attention must have been sought following the accident
If you are not certain if you do, or do not, meet this criteria then just give us a call free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no obligation advice about making a claim for compensation. Alternatively, we have a quick claim form here on the site that you can use. Upon receipt of the completed form, we will get back to just as soon as we can.
There is also the now famous thirty second test. This test will check your elegibility, and also give an estimate of how much your could be awarded.
Being awarded compensation because you have broken your hand may seem a little strange, but you should think about how much you have been inconvenienced by this. Even after your hand is ‘healed’, you still need to take care for a while as the bones will still be fragile.
