In the human body we have 206 bones all of which are susceptible to fractures. A fracture occurs when a physical force stronger then the bone is exerted onto the bone. If you are diagnosed with a fracture it means you have suffered from a break or crack to your bone or bones. In most cases a fracture can easily be realigned and put into a cast to heal.
However if you have suffered from something called an open fracture then you will have damaged the actual skin as well which means that the bone is visible through the skin. This will need to be treated with antibiotics to make sure there is no chance of infection and the skin itself will need stitches. All bone fractures can be very painful and you are most likely to need pain relief for anything from a few days to a few weeks.
Suffering from any fracture can suddenly make life very difficult, you may not be able to work, to drive, to cook, to clean, to shop for food, and maybe not even be able to walk or use the bathroom alone. In some cases this can also leave its victims with emotional trauma.
If you suffer from a fracture while you are at work in an accident that was not your fault you may be eligible to make a Sedgemoor accident at work claim for compensation and to reclaim any extra expenses caused by your injuries such as travel expenses, prescriptions, childcare and much more.
