Bone Fracture Claims
Fractured bone claims occur due to the result of multiple fracture injuries, usually after a traumatic incident such as a car accident. The body has suffered a catastrophic event and as a result many broken bones have occurred.
There are many types of bone fractures depending on the type of trauma/impact and all take considerable time to heal; cause pain; and require rehabilitation.
If you have serious injuries caused by another party, you will be entitled to be compensated for the losses that you have suffered as a result of the accident by making a fractured bone claim.
For multiple fracture injuries, special damages the losses and expenses you have incurred that can be specifically quantified. This includes your loss of earnings, damage to property, medical expenses, taxi fares, etc.
It is important to keep a diary of events as well as receipts for all expenses incurred relating to multiple fracture injuries as they can be extensive and wide reaching.
What Do You Need To Prove To Make A Fractured Bone Claim?
One of the most important factors in any personal injury case is the availability and nature of medical evidence of the injuries. When someone suffers a broken or fractured bone (or multiple fractured bones), a radiologist will almost certainly take x-ray images that definitively speak to the extent of the fracture.
There’s no arguing with the black and white x-ray image of a fractured bone. Unlike soft-tissue injuries which are difficult to prove, “hard” injuries like bone fractures are nearly indisputable.
The assessment of compensation for severe multiple injuries is personal to the individual and the amount of compensation depends on the individual circumstances of the claimant. It involves looking at all aspects of the claimant’s life – in the home, at work, leisure and sporting activities – to build a picture of how their life would have progressed without the injuries compared to how it will progress with the consequences of their multiple fracture injuries.
