Claiming compensation for leg injuries
Although the majority of legal injuries can be treated successfully, it may take you quite some time to make a full recovery. If you suffer a fractured bone in your leg, for example, the area may need to be in plaster for months in order for the bone to heal properly.
A more complicated break may even require surgery. In some cases, metal rods or pins are used to help the fracture heal and, whilst this is effective, it could prolong your recovery.
In some cases, people can sustain muscle damage, rather than breaks or fractures. Whilst most muscle injuries aren’t too serious, a severely torn muscle may also require surgery and could take a lengthy time to heal.
Due to this, you may feel that it’s important to claim compensation after sustaining a leg injury, providing you’re eligible to do so.
Could you make an injury claim?
In order to be able to make a personal injury claim, you’ll need to show that you weren’t responsible for the incident which caused your injuries. If you’re able to do this, and you obtained medical treatment following the accident, you should be able to make an injury claim.
However, most claimants are only given 3 years’ in which to take legal action after an accident so you won’t be able to wait too long to take legal action.
