    Compensation claim in Sanquhar


    Have you suffered a broken bone injury? Was someone else responsible for the accident that caused your injury? If so, and the accident happened within the last 3 years, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Sanquhar.

    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.

    Common accidents that cause broken bones

    Accidents at work, Road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls, sports injuries -and even physical assault – are all common causes of broken bone injuries. However, Accident Advice Helpline deals with compensation claims for all types of accidents that have caused a broken bone injury.

    What can you claim compensation for?

    General damages

    This is compensation paid for the physical and psychological pain you’ve suffered and will continue to suffer as a result of the accident.

    Special Damages

    This is compensation to reimburse you for lost wages, including overtime and future loss of earnings, as well as all other expenses associated with your injury.

    What do all other expenses associated with an injury mean?

    Depending on the severity of your injury, you could end up with a whole host of other out-of-pocket expenses. It is vital that you keep proof of these other expenses because you can claim them back. Expenses such as:

    • Prescription medication
    • Cost of travel to medical visits
    • Hiring home help/home care
