    Broken a bone in a road traffic accident? Need advice to make your claim stand up?

    Road traffic accidents are one of the most unpredictable accidents that occur everyday. Regardless of whether you are driving on a motorway or country lane, a road traffic accident can literally stop you in your tracks.  If you, or someone close to you, has sustained a broken bone as the result of your Newcastle-under-Lyme road traffic accidents, then you may be legally entitled to claim personal injury compensation.

    Causes of road traffic accidents

    Accidents on the roads can occur without any warning and may involve more than one motorist. Typical causes of Newcastle-under-Lyme road traffic accidents may be linked to:

    • Poor weather conditions
    • Inexperienced drivers
    • Older drivers
    • Excessive speeds
    • Failure to follow road signs
    • Failure to obey road markings
    • Failure to stop at red traffic lights and stop junctions
    • Failure to give way at junctions
    • Failure to give way on roundabouts
    • Failure to indicate
    • Falling asleep at the wheel
    • Distractions in the vehicle
    • Mobile phones
    • Driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs

    Not all Newcastle-under-Lyme road traffic accidents are caused through driver error, sometimes other people may be to blame through negligence or through a fault of their own. In circumstances such as these, it may be possible to pursue personal injury compensation for an injury that was caused as a result of your Newcastle-under-Lyme road traffic accidents.

    Broken bones

    Bones make up our skeleton which ensure that our bodies are capable of movement, remain strong, protected and supported. If a bone becomes damaged as the result of an accident, then it may become fractured or break. If a joint is overstretched, then a dislocation may occur which involves the bone rotating out of its socket and becoming displaced.

    Broken or fractured bones need to be examined with an x-ray to illustrate the precise location of the damaged bone to the medical practitioner. Once an x-ray has been performed, the extent and degree of fracture or breakage can be established and treatment can be given.

    Many broken bones can be simply plastered to ensure that they remain immobile, whilst they heal in place. Sometimes, bones may need to be manipulated back into position to allow the bones to repair in the correct position. If a bone splinters or becomes maligned, then fragments of the bone may need to be held together with titanium wires, screws and plates to strengthen the bones.  Steel rods may need to be inserted into longer bones to ensure that they remain strong and resilient as they heal.
