Fibula Fracture


The fibula is the smaller of the two main calf bones which runs from the knee to the ankle joints in parallel with the tibia, to which it is also connected at the top and the bottom. In relative terms, the fibula is the slenderest of the main long bones in the limbs of humans, and as such is more commonly broken than the others. A fibula fracture, therefore, is arguably less serious than that of the tibia or femur, but it still causes a great deal of pain and discomfort, and can in some cases require an operation to aid a full recovery.

If you suffer from a fibula fracture, you are likely to have to limit your mobility dramatically due to the requirement of a cast, crutches or in some drastic cases a wheelchair, in order to allow the bone to recover and heel. As such, this kind of fibula fracture can have a long term adverse effect on your work and social life, as you are simply less able to get around and cannot do as many activities as when you are fully fit.

Claiming Compensation for a Fibula Fracture That Wasn’t Your Fault

If it was the action or inaction of another individual or organisation that was directly responsible for your fibula fracture, you may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering that was inflicted on you. In the eyes of the law, anyone who suffers an accident or injury that was somebody else’s fault deserves to be compensated for the exact kinds of problems that were discussed above.
