Gateshead accident at work claim


Most people have 206 bones in their body, all just waiting to be broken in an accident that was not their own fault. Sometimes, people have a couple more or a couple less for various reasons, but this does not make them immune to accidents or from making a Gateshead accident at work claim, if they sustained the injury in an accident at work.

The broken bones that can cause an accident at work claim for compensation

There are many different types of breaks that happen in bones, some of them being more common in children because their bones are so soft. Having said that, children’s bones heal quicker for the same reason. They are prone to have such things a greenstick fractures, which are a bend in the bone, rather than a break.

Then there are the elderly to consider whose bones can be very brittle. Brittle bones break very easily and can take a long time to heal.

For adults in the middle of these two other groups, most broken bones happen in accidents and take about 6 to 8 weeks to heal.

In anyone, sometimes they will hear the bone snap if they have what is known as a simple fracture, which is just a clean break to the bone that does not break the skin. Other than that, the initial pain of a broken bone is very intense, and wherever the bone is broken may looked deformed but at the very least will swell and probably bruise.

Any of these breaks will cause pain, suffering and inconvenience to the innocent victim, which is why if the accident it happened in was work related, they should consider making a Gateshead accident at work claim.

The more serious broken bones

Many of us will either have broken a bone ourselves or know someone else that has suffered this type of injury, so you will know that generally there are no long term ill effects. But what if the broken bone was your skull or in your back, this could be a totally different story.

A broken back at its worst can mean that the victim can no longer walk and has to use a wheelchair, if they are able to sit, sometimes they cannot even do that.

With a broken skull you have to wonder if any damage has been caused to the brain as well, because if it has, who knows what the outcome could be. Certainly a brain injury of any sort can change the life of the victim and their loved ones forever, and some of them need 24 hour care for the rest of their lives.
