    "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."

    Femur injury


    The femur is the heaviest, longest and in most regards the strongest bone in the human body. It stretches from the pelvis to the knee joint in both legs. Due to its strength and its importance for simple movements such as walking or jumping, any femur injury can prove to be both very painful and very difficult to repair and recover from.

    Recovering from a femur injury

    A serious break to your femur almost always leaves you having to rest, recuperate and not put any weight on your leg for an extended period of time. In some cases, recovery may also require an operation to insert a pin into your leg, a full leg cast or even a spell in a wheelchair in severe cases. All of this means that you will suffer a fair degree of pain, which will be compounded by the problems which can result from multiple hospital visits and extended periods of immobility.

    Secondary effects

    Beyond the primary effects of pain, discomfort and immobility, there are also a number of damaging secondary effects of a femur injury. Being immobilised even for a short period of time can have a damaging effect by limiting your ability to get out and about, and this can cause distress and depression. What’s more is that it can also clearly impede someone’s ability to work, especially if your day job involves being on your feet all day, and as a knock-on effect this can mean that you lose earnings because of your femur injury.

    What if it wasnt your fault?

    As we have seen, a femur injury can have a massively negative effect on someone’s life, so what if the injury was somebody else’s fault? In this case, the law states that you deserve to be compensated for the problems and issues that result from your injury, and it is important that someone who did cause a serious injury to you is held to account.

    If you feel that you are due compensation for a femur injury that was not your fault, visit the Accident Advice Helpline website and use our 30-second test to assess your position.
