At Accident Advice Helpline, we see people making a personal injury claim in Bangor for many reasons. Despite the variety of types of accidents, sometimes the injuries can be similar. We have seen motorcyclists, cyclists, employees and pedestrians all making various claims that involve broken bones.
Broken bones are one of the easier things to quantify in a personal injury claim. Pain caused by whiplash or concussion can be hard to prove, as the damage isn’t always visible. Whereas with a fractured bone, it is possible to physically see the damage on an x-ray.
Severity of a fracture
The fact that two people have both broken one of the many bones in the human body is usually where the similarity ends. Two people could both be making a injury claim for a broken arm, but the breaks could be of completely different severities. One may have a single clean break, while the other could have a much more serious accident that caused multiple breaks. One might need a cast that will only be required for a couple of months, where the other might need operations and pins, along with months of rehabilitation.
These are just some of the things we take into account when making your personal injury claim. The pain and suffering caused, as well as the on-going impact to your daily life, are just two of the major contributors to the amount of compensation you might be entitled to.
Are you eligible to claim?
Anyone who wishes to make a personal injury claim in Bangor must ask themselves three questions:
- Was my accident within the last 3 years?
- Did my accident require medical attention?
- Was the accident caused by someone else
If you can answer ‘yes’ to all three of these questions, then there is a very good chance you can make a personal injury claim.
