Broken Bones and making your compensation claim in Sanquhar
Breaking a bone is a fairly common occurrence. It is estimated that around 6.8 million people break a bone every year. The most common sites for bone fractures are the wrist and ankle.
Any bone in the body can break, and there are lots of different types of fractures with varying degrees of severity. For example, a broken arm or wrist usually takes about six to eight weeks to heal, but a broken leg could take between ten to twenty-four weeks to heal. A skull fracture, on the other hand, takes much longer and in some cases may be life-threatening.
