    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Broken arm?

    Breaking a limb is unpleasant. There is the 6 weeks or so in plaster, the appointments at the orthopaedic clinic and then hopefully, once the plaster is off, all is well and you are none-the-worse for wear.

    But there are difficulties with broken bones. Breaking an arm for example, can have lifelong implications especially if the break is not straightforward. As an injury lawyer in Bishampton will tell you, when the break is bad, there may be operations, pins and casts for many weeks for you to endure.

    What can make the whole situation feel a lot worse is the fact that you may not have been responsible for the accident in which you have your arm broken. All that pain and inconvenience which could have been avoided if the ‘wet floor’ sign had been apparent or some other warning that told you the area was not safe.

    Or maybe there were items left on stairs causing you to trip and fall heavily. Possibly you tripped over or maybe slipped as a result of a loose paving stone?

    An injury lawyer in Bishampton will tell you that there are several ways that people have badly broken their arm and if this sounds like you, then you may be eligible for compensation.
