    "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."

    Solicitor in Dalston


    It is certain that you were not planning on getting injured during your visit to Dalston. You are probably outraged that the accident was not even your own fault. The problems are mounting up right now – you are in pain and discomfort and finding it difficult to carry on as normal. Perhaps, your finances are taking a big hit as well – perhaps you cannot work or do some of the other things that you usually do like care for young children.

    This is an unfair situation and you are probably quite rightly feeling aggrieved. Thankfully, the United Kingdom’s legal system recognises this and allows you to do something about it through a legal process known as personal injury claims. You get help with this by consulting a personal injury solicitor in Dalston and you can find a personal injury solicitor by calling Accident Advice Helpline.

    Many people make the first steps towards finding a personal injury solicitor in Dalston by entering the details of their accident into the unique 30 second test operated by Accident Advice Helpline on their website and via their 24/7 hotline. You will get an indication of whether your case will be successful and of how much money you could get.

    Every year hundreds of people do this because they have broken their arm in a fall in a shop. This can happen if the floor is worn, damaged or slippery and if the area is badly lit it just makes matters worse.

    Personal injury solicitors in Dalston  – the accident

    Some people know that they have broken their arm the minute they hit the floor! It may immediately start to swell or the pain may be excruciating. Other people may actually hear or feel it snap making you feel dizzy and sick! When we slip, trip or fall we instinctively put out our arms to save ourselves and so they take the full force of the body’s weight. In some really severe cases the forces are strong enough to break the bone so badly that it pierces the skin – this is called a compound fracture.

    Personal injury solicitors in Dalston – at the hospital

    Once you have found someone to drive you to the hospital you should try and secure the injured arm in a sling – it will reduce the pain and stop the bones from moving even further apart. An ice pack will help too – although if you haven’t got one just use a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel!

    The only way to really tell how bad the break is will be an X-ray. The doctor will look at this carefully and decide if you need an operation to put the bones back in place before they put the arm in plaster.
