    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Hampstead

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have many specialist legal teams, such as the one headed by lawyer, who help customers to make all manner of compensation claims for all different types of injury.

    How did you get your fractured wrist?

    The first thing that depends on how much you can claim compensation is the situation in which you suffered your injury.

    The most important factor in determining how much compensation you can claim with the help of our expert lawyer is the fact that the circumstances or accident must not have been your fault.

    For example, if you ignored warning signs not to take the route due to uneven surface and then fell, fracturing your wrist then the appeal for compensation may not be as successful as what you may think.

    However, if it is clear that the accident could have been avoided – and thus your injury avoided – your specialist lawyer may well be able to claim the compensation you deserve.

    How severe is your injury?

    Another aspect that you lawyer will want to consider in your case is the severity and impact of your fractured wrist on you.

    Some fractured wrists, although a nuisance, the treatment is fairly straightforward. X-rays are needed to confirm the fracture, then a cast is usually applied and will stay on for anything between 4 and 6 weeks.

    However, other customers find that their fractured wrist is more complicated, sometimes requiring surgery and other interventions. Clearly, the more severe your fracture, the more compensation you could be entitled to.

    Additional costs

    Many people find a fractured wrist and the accompanying cast a nuisance and nightmare to live with. It can make life more difficult with the addition of an inflexible dressing, designed to keep the bones straight whilst they knit and heal back together.

    If you are a car driver, you should not drive with your cast on as you could be seen as not being in control of your vehicle if you cannot hold the steering wheel correctly with both hands.

    Getting about to run errands, as well as work being affected could all have an impact on your pocket, draining cash from it! Our lawyer believes that if you have been injured as a result of someone else’s actions of negligence, you should not be out of pocket.
