Injury solicitors in Hertfordshire


After an accident there is a high likelihood that some of the people involved may have sustained broken bones. If you are at the scene and want to help whilst you wait for the emergency services then knowing how to do first aid for broken bones can be useful. This can also be useful if you yourself are in an accident and need to do first aid on yourself whilst waiting for an ambulance.

Diagnose a break

Before you can start treating the patient, you need to know that you are dealing with a broken bone. Symptoms include:

  • Deformity to a limb or body part
  • Severe bleeding
  • Severe pain
  • Numbness and even certain areas of the body feeling cold

You should also get emergency help if:

  • The person has lost consciousness
  • There is injury to the head, back, neck, hip, pelvis or leg
  • There is a lot of blood
  • The person is in shock

Make a splint

It is helpful to immobilise the area which has been damaged to stop it moving whilst you wait for the emergency services. You can use rolled up newspaper, sticks, or anything which will create a solid backbone for your splint. You should put padding in between the stick and the broken bone to make it more comfortable, and then tightly wrap it up to stop it moving.

Maintain the wound

Use ice to bring down the swelling around the injury, and then keep checking to make sure that the blood is still circulating properly and there is not too much blood being lost. You should only have to do this until the emergency services arrive.

When to use injury solicitors in Hertfordshire

If your accident was caused by the negligence of someone else, then you may want to think about using injury solicitors to claim compensation against the other party. Compensation can help you to deal with the aftermath of your accident in a number of ways. First of all it helps you emotionally, by proving to you that you were in the right in your accident, and helping you to draw a line under the situation once and for all. It also provides you with financial help which can be very useful after an accident, to help you to cover lost wages, pay for medical treatments, and get help until you are up and about.
