The number can vary slightly up or down for differing reasons, but usually the human body has 206 bones, all just waiting to be cracked, broken or crushed. Whichever it is, the medical profession refer to them all as fractures.
Fractured bones are one of the most common injuries, and more often than not are caused by the person they belong to. However, if someone else causes you to have fractured bones, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
The solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you do this when you have fractures in Kirkwhelpington.
Fractures in Kirkwhelpington
Fractures can happen in any type of accident at all, such as:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Slips trips or falls
Most accidents fit into one of the above sectors, but it does not matter how it happened, if it was the fault of someone else it will come with the scope of personal injury claims.
Our solicitors in Kirkwhelpington point out that any type of injury, from any type of accident that was not your fault, comes under the UK law that says the guilty party should pay you compensation for the suffering they have caused.
They should also repay you any extra costs that are inevitable after an accident. Extra medicines, travelling costs, getting help around the house, or anything else you have had to pay because of the accident. It is important though that you keep proof of these expenses, as without that repayment may be refused.
Loss of earnings
The same applies to loss of earnings if you are a worker and had to lose time to recover. Your wages slips are the best proof that your income has reduced, but if you have not kept these, your employer can confirm the reduction. If you work for yourself, you will need confirmation of the reduced income from your accountant.
All of these things will be accounted for by the solicitors in Kirkwhelpington when they are helping you to make your personal injury claim.
The treatment of fractures
The treatment can depend on how bad your fracture is, but also which bones are broken. It could be:
- Ice packs
- Plaster cast
- Support bandages
- Surgery to insert pins, screws or plates
