Breaking a bone as a result of Oldbury road traffic accidents is a common occurrence. Some people have been involved in a collision with another vehicle, pedestrian or even stationary object. As a result, they have suffered the pain and distress of breaking a bone and requiring hospitalisation.

You might have suffered a broken bone as the result of your Oldbury road traffic accidents. If this was caused through no fault of your own, within the last 3 years, you may wish to research up-to-date and relevant information. This will help you to find out about your legal right to pursue personal injury compensation.

Causes of Oldbury road traffic accidents

Road traffic accidents may be caused through no fault of the person who has been injured, and they may include:

  1. Poor visibility
  2. Poor weather conditions
  3. Lack of experience of drivers
  4. Failing to stop at junctions when requested
  5. Failing to give way at junctions and roundabouts
  6. Driving too fast
  7. Driving too close to other vehicles
  8. Insufficient stopping distances
  9. Failing to allow adequate space for other road users
  10. Driving dangerously
  11. Driving whilst unfit – through tiredness, illness or injury
  12. Driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs


Injuries can vary in seriousness, and they may take many weeks and even months to overcome. Sustaining a broken, fractured or dislocated bone can require surgical intervention, in order to repair and stabilise the bones in place.

  • Broken limb such as arm or leg
  • Broken ribs through impact with a steering wheel
  • Broken pelvis 
  • Broken neck through impact of collision
  • Dislocated shoulder blade
  • Dislocated knee

Repairing the break

Surgery may be required to ensure that the bones are correctly aligned. This allows them to be stabilised, preventing further damage to the soft tissues of the body.

The casualty may require a CT scan to diagnose the exact location of the displaced or broken bones. This will ensure that surgery is undertaken effectively. Surgery may involve metal rods, wires or pins and plates being used. This is done to realign the fragments of bones.

If the break is stable, then the damaged limb may be plastered. This ensures that it stays in position whilst it heals.

Physiotherapy may be required to ensure that flexibility, strength and movement are restored as soon as possible.
