    "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."

    Solicitors in Elderslie

    In the old days, if you broke one of your bones, because there was not any proper medical treatment the bones often healed deformed, as they did not know they had to repair the break before it heals. It is a different situation these days and as well as getting proper treatment, if your bones are broken because of someone else, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

    With 206 bones in our bodies, there are a lot of them that can be broken in an accident that was not your fault, and if this happens to you, you should be contacting solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to make your compensation claim.

    Broken bones

    Breaking bones can occur in lots of different ways, but if it is an accident that you were a blameless victim of, you may be entitled to make an injury claim.

    Some of the accidental ways are:

    • Falling off your bicycle or horse
    • Playing contact sports such as boxing or rugby
    • Car collisions
    • Slips on wet floors that have no warning signs
    • Falling over an obstacle that shouldn’t be there
    • Tripping up some steps
    • Work related accidents
    • Motorbike accidents

    Here in this list are just a few of the different types of accidents that can happen, break bones and why you may want to use personal injury solicitors.

    The recovery

    The timescale of the recovery time of the fracture will depend on which bones are broken, the severity of the break, and your age. The bones of children will heal quicker than those of an elderly person, although children are more likely to break bones because their bones are so soft in comparison.

    Any break, if it was in an accident that was the fault or caused through the recklessness of somebody else, can be the reason for using solicitors to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    The treatment of broken bones

    The treatment of the broken bones will depend on how severe it is and which bone is broken, but it could include:

    • Pain killers
    • Surgery to insert pins, screws or plates
    • Support bandages
    • Plaster cast
    • Ice packs to reduce swelling
    • Crutches
