    Non fault lawyers in Regents Park

    Regents Park is one of the Royal Parks of London. On 15 January 1867, 40 people died when the ice cover on the boating lake collapsed and over 200 people plunged into the lake. The lake was subsequently drained and its depth reduced to four feet, before being reopened to the public.

    As well as the very sad deaths, there were probably a few broken bones as well. After all, with 206 of them in our bodies, an awful accident like that is bound to produce a few cracks and breaks, or fractures as the doctors call them.

    That accident was not really the fault of anyone, but if you sustain fractures in an accident that is someone else’s fault then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using non fault lawyers in Regents Park.

    The different types of fractures

    There are many different types of fracture, but some of the more common ones are:

    • Spiral fracture – a break winding round the bone;
    • Comminuted fracture – the bone is broken into pieces or shattered;
    • Simple fracture – where there is no break in the skin;
    • Bowing fracture – this is where the bones bends rather than breaks and usually occurs in children, as their bones are softer;
    • Complete fracture – a clean break into two;
    • Compound fracture – the bone breaks through the skin; and
    • Greenstick fracture – the bones only breaks and one side.

    If you sustain any of these, or any of the other numerous fractures, in an accident for which you were not to blame, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim using non fault lawyers in Regents Park.

    How fractures happen

    Most fractures happen in an accident of some sort. Road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls, and accidents at work are examples, but they can happen anywhere any time — they are usually very sudden and unexpected.

    How to treat fractures

    This depends on the severity of the fracture, but also which bones are affected. It could include:

    • Support bandages;
    • A sling;
    • Surgery to insert pins, screws or plates;
    • Ice packs;
    • Plaster cast;
    • Crutches; and
    • Painkillers.

    These treatments will be used for most fractures, but if the fracture is in your skull or spine that’s a different matter altogether. The treatment could then well be to limit the damage rather than repair the damage, and injuries like these could change your life forever.
