    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Suffering a broken leg is an extremely painful thing for anyone to experience. The leg is made up of three main bones and the lower leg consists of the tibia and fibular bones. While both bones are important it is the fibular that is the main weight bearing bone and this is the one that will cause the most distress when injured.

    If you have an accident and experience a sharp pain in this, combined with swelling, or bruising then don’t try and walk on it, wait for medical help to arrive. If you have not called an ambulance then get someone to take you to the A & E department of your local hospital straight away.

    If the accident that caused your injury was not your fault then you should contact expert injury solicitors in Torphins to discuss your chances of claiming compensation for your injury.

    Expert injury solicitors in Torphins – How do bones break?

    Bones break when they are subject to sudden impact or trauma such as that caused by a motoring accident or fall from a bike or horse. Broken bones are quite common injuries amongst sports people and an awkward fall can cause a bone to crack or break. Anything that causes stress to the bone may result in a fracture and if your fracture was caused by someone else’s negligence then you should contact expert injury solicitors in Torphins straight away.

    Recovering from a broken bone

    The initial pain from this type of injury can be quite traumatic but will quickly subside into a dull throb; the use of painkillers and ice packs can help greatly in the first twenty four to forty eight hours. Recovery times vary depending on the nature of the break and the body of the person themselves. Complementary therapies have become more and more popular in treating breaks and treatment is now proactive rather than reactive.
