    "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."

    Road accident in Sevenoaks


    In general people believe that a fracture is not as bad as a break, however they mean exactly the same. The medical profession refer to all breaks, crushes and cracks in bones as fractures.

    If you are injured in a road accident in Sevenoaks, and if your injury is a broken wrist, you should contact an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline to help you make a personal injury claim. Any type of injury, in any type of accident that was not your own fault entitles you to compensation from the guilty party, providing that it happened no more than three years ago.

    Fracturing your wrist can also be caused by a forceful twist or impact, and this quite often happens when people are involved in an accident that creates a fall or nasty bang to the area.

    The symptoms of a broken wrist when you have a road accident in Sevenoaks

    If you have a clean break then this can cause a snapping sound, but other than that the severe pain will leave you in no doubt that you have damaged your wrist.  It is also likely to swell and be very tender.  If the skin has been broken, there might be some bleeding.

    If someone else caused this to happen to you in a road accident in Sevenoaks, the law in the UK says that the guilty party should financially compensate you for the suffering they have caused.  This is when you will need the services of an injury solicitor.

    The treatment for a fractured wrist

    The treatment for a fractured wrist will depend on how severe the fracture is, but it could include:

    • Surgery may be needed to insert pins, rods, plates or screws
    • Painkillers
    • An X-ray, and complicated fractures may need an MRI, CT scan or bone scan
    • In the case of a minor fracture – a plaster cast to hold the bone ends together
    • A sling to secure the arm to the chest
    • Physiotherapy
