    "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."

    After whiplash, one of the most common injuries from accidents are broken bones. Most of us have 206 of them, so having a broken one sometimes is not unusual. Breaks to bones usually only happen in accidents, and if the accident your break happened in was not your own fault, you may be able to enlist the help of our personal injury lawyer in Wiltshire to claim compensation.

    Confirming your broken bone

    There are times the victim will hear the bone snap if it is a clean break, or if it is your knee bone, you may feel the break. But in most circumstances, the only way to be certain that your bone is broken is to attend hospital for an X-ray. 

    It is not just for confirmation of the break this should be done. There could be slivers of bone that can cause even more damage, and these will need dealing with by the hospital.

    Generally bones take 6 – 8 weeks to heal. This can be quicker in children because of the softness of their bones, and longer in the elderly because their bones are so brittle.

    Using our personal injury lawyer in Wiltshire

    When you are looking to find the best law firm to represent you with your personal injury claim you need look no further than Accident Advice Helpline.

    Open Claim Calculator

    Many claimants start the claim by completing our 30-second test as this lets you know if you have a valid claim, and gives you an estimate of how much your compensation could be. This can only ever be an estimate at the start of your claim though, as there are too many factors that can affect the final settlement figure.

    Other claimants prefer to call our freephone helpline, 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and speak to our friendly advisors. They will give you all the information you ask for so that you can decide if you want to proceed with a claim. This is done free of any charge or obligation, and they will respect your wishes if you decide that a claim is not the way forward for you.

    They will also explain our no win no fee agreement to you. We use this because it is the only way we can be certain that everyone can make a claim, no matter how good or bad their financial situation is. We will not ask you for any money to start your claim, and if it is lost, we will not ask you to pay any legal fees.

    Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline

    There is a time limit of three years from the date of the accident for your claim to be started, so you should get in touch with us now. Do not wait till it is too late, and lose out on the compensation you could be entitled to.
