It does not matter if you have a cracked bone, a broken bone or a crushed bone, doctors call them all fractures and it is a common misconception that there is a difference between them. This type of injury is generally caused in an accident. If you have this problem from an accident, that was not your own fault, you should be talking to Accident Advice Helpline about making a Wandsworth, no win no fee* accident claim for compensation.
A Wandsworth no win no fee* accident claim is a common result of fractures
Our bones can be very easily damaged by a direct blow to them or by excessive twisting or pressure. Most people have 206 of them, so that is a lot of choice when it comes to fracturing a bone.
Depending on which bones are damaged and how severe the damage is, the victim can suffer pain and discomfort and could be immobilised until the bone has healed. When someone else has caused this situation for you, it is your legal right to claim compensation, which is why a Wandsworth, no win no fee* accident claim is often because of fractures.
Treating your fractures
This depends on which bones have been damaged and how severe the damage is, but it can include:
- Support bandages
- Plaster casts
- Surgery to insert pins or plates, or to realign bones
This sort of treatment would deal with most fractures in our body, but if the problem is with our skull, our spine or bones in our chest, this could require much more specialist and longer treatment.
Whichever bone is fractured though, you should not delay seeking medical attention for it. If you do, the bones could start to repair themselves in the wrong places, or if there are slivers of bone lose in your body these could cause more damage.
Do not delay with your Wandsworth, no win no fee* accident claim
You should not delay in making your no win no fee* accident claim either, as for no particular reason, the earlier claims are made, the more successful they appear to be.
