    Do you need injury Solicitors in Colvend because of your fractured wrist?

    It is generally thought that a fracture is not as bad as a break, but in reality, they are exactly the same.  The medical profession refers to all breaks and cracks to bones as fractures.

    A broken wrist can be caused by a forceful twist or an impact, and this quite often happens when people are involved in an accident that creates a fall or nasty bang to the area. If this happens to you, and the accident was not your fault, you may want to make a personal injury claim and use the services of injury solicitors in Colvend.

    Symptoms of a broken wrist when you need the help of injury solicitors in Colvend

    A clean break can cause a snapping sound, but other than that the severe pain will leave you in no doubt that you have damaged your wrist.  It is also likely to swell and be very tender.  If the skin has been broken, there might be some bleeding.

    If someone else caused this to happen to you, UK law says that the guilty party should financially compensate you for the suffering they have caused.  This is when you will need the services of injury solicitors in Colvend.

    Treatment for a fractured wrist

    The severity of the injury will determine what treatment you receive, but it could include:

    • Painkillers
    • An X-ray and complicated fractures may need an MRI, CT scan or bone scan
    • In the case of a minor fracture – a plaster cast to hold the bone ends together
    • In more severe cases – surgery may be needed to insert pins, rods, plates or screws
    • A sling to secure the arm to the chest
    • Physiotherapy

    Making your fractured wrist personal injury claim

    Accident Advice Helpline was established in 2000 to give access to justice for faultless victims of accidents. In 1998, legal aid for personal injury compensation claims was abolished so we operate on a no-win, no-fee basis, so you will not have to find any money to start your claim, and if we do not win your case you will not have to pay us a penny.

    We are successful and thrive partly because of the ideals we adhere to – Integrity, Dependability, Reliability and Accountability, partly because of our solicitors and their expertise, partly because of our trained friendly advisors there to assist you at all times, and simply because all these factors combine to ensure we are the best.

    Dame Esther Rantzen, the UK consumer champion, thinks so too. She recommends our services and knows we will get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible while getting the fairest deal for you.

    On our website, you can complete our 30-second test.  This is designed to give you a rough estimate of the amount of compensation you may be awarded.

    Or you can phone our freephone number and speak to one of our advisors for assistance.  The helpline number is 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and it is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
