    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Solicitor in Burton on Trent


    The most distressing moments of an accident in which you break one of the bones in your leg is often the period immediately after the accident. This is magnified if the accident was not your fault – it may have been a car accident, a workplace accident or a slip, trip or fall in a public place. It may even have been a sporting injury.

    The first people to give you some support and help will probably be the ambulance crew who attend the accident scene and transport you in an ambulance to the local Accident and Emergency Department. Prior to the journey it is normal practice to stabilise the injured leg with a splint – this is done to reduce the pain and minimise the risk of the bones moving further out of place. You will probably be offered some pain relief as well.

    This is hardly an occasion when you are going to be able to collect details about the accident at the scene so try and ask a responsible person to do it on your behalf.

    Later on, when you contact Accident Advice Helpline to find a personal injury lawyer in Burton on Trent, this information will be very useful.
