    If you break any bone in your body because of an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make an injury compensation claim using solicitors in Hexham to help.

    Solicitors in Hexham will help you with your broken bone claim

    People think that there is a difference between a fracture and a break, but this is not true: the medical profession call it a fracture whether it is broken, sprained or crushed.

    In the human body there are 206 bones. That means there is a lot of choice for fracturing. If one or more of your bones gets fractured because of the negligence of someone else, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim using solicitors in Hexham.

    There are lots of different types of fractures

    There are lots of different types of fractures that can happen, some of which are more likely to happen in different age groups. For instance, a bowing or greenstick fracture is more likely to happen to a child because of the softness of their bones. The bones of children are generally more likely to break than those of an adult, but they heal quicker as well. The bones of the elderly tend to be more brittle and snap more easily, and they are also more likely to take longer to heal.

    How your bones can get fractured

    Fracturing a bone can occur in lots of different ways through any type of accident, but most occur in situations like road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls, or accidents at work. Any sudden impact to your bones can cause a fracture, or if it gets twisted more than it should be.

    Treating a fractured bone

    Treating a fractured bone depends on how bad the break is, but could include:

    • Painkillers;
    • Support bandages;
    • Slings;
    • Surgery to insert pins, screws or plates;
    • Ice packs to ease the swelling;
    • Plaster cast; or
    • Crutches.

    When you tell people you have a broken bone, most would assume that it is a leg or arm. But if it should be your skull then you could sustain brain damage, or broken bones in your spine could mean that you may no longer be able to walk. Injuries like these change the life of the victim and the lives of those close to them, and this would be accounted for when our solicitors in Hexham make your personal injury claim.
