    Have you suffered from a dislocated joint?

    If you have ever dislocated a joint you will know precisely how painful an experience this can be. What you may not know however is that if your accident which resulted in the dislocation was not your fault then you may be able to make a claim for compensaton against the person who was legally responsible.

    To find out more about whether or not you can make a claim for compensation you can speak to an Accident Advice Helpline expert solicitor in Milnthorpe today for more information.

    Types of Joints

    In reality it is possible to dislocate any area of the body where two bones come together in a joint. However, the most common are:

    • Shoulders
    • Elbow
    • Ankle
    • Fingers and thumbs
    • Knee
    • Wrist (there are actually eight separate bones in the wrist, and any one of these can be dislocated)
    • Hip (including pelvic bones)
    • Toes
    • Discs in the spine (often referred to as being a slipped or herniated disc)
    • Jaw

    No matter what joint you have dislocated if the injury was not caused by any action you took, and you think someone else was responsible for your accident, then an expert solicitor in Milnthorpe can help you make a claim against the necessary third party.

    How dislocation occurs

    As well as being various joints that you can dislocate, there are various ways in which the accident can occur.

    If we look at the most common form of dislocated joint, the shoulder, we can see that this injury can easily occur as a result of a road traffic accident, or slip, trip or even a fall from height. These accidents can occur in a variety of locations, from on the road, in public, to accidents in the home, on holiday or at work.

    If your injury was caused by another road user who was perhaps not driving with due care or attention, then your expert solicitor in Milnthorpe will be able to help you make a claim for personal injury rather than specifically through your car insurer who will be predominantly concerned with repairing your vehicle if necessary.

    Equally, if your accident occurred at work then your expert solicitor in Milnthorpe will look at the events leading up to and determine whether your employer could be held to be accountable. Your employer may be liable if they have failed to provide you with a safe work environment (perhaps not maintaining a building properly), or by not giving you the necessary training to perform a particular task (a herniated disc could be caused as a result of a manual handling related accident).

    How much compensation?

    To find out how much compensation you might be entitled to you can take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test. Amounts will vary depending on where the injury has occurred and how long you have been affected by the after affects.
