When can I get compensation for a broken bone or fracture injury?
Anybody who has suffered a broken bone or a fracture injury (a small crack in the bone) is entitled to make a compensation claim if:
- A business or person owed you a legal duty of care, and they failed in that duty. Employers and health and social care workers have a duty of care.
- Your accident happened because another person acted negligently. For example, a car driver was speeding, or the local council did not repair a cracked pavement.
The types of injuries which can lead to such compensation are broken or fractured ankles, arms, elbows, feet and toes, fingers and thumbs, hips, jaw, knees, legs, ribs, shoulder bone, spine, skull, tail-bone and wrist.
Please note this list is not exhaustive as any break or fracture can lead to a broken bone compensation claim.
Broken bone injuries can be very serious and can lead to loss of income or loss of independence. You may have suffered multiple injuries from your accident.
Whatever the extent of your injuries, please talk to our solicitors, who will be able to advise you about claiming compensation.
