Compound Fracture Injury Claims

What Are Compound Fracture Injury Claims?

Compound fracture injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have fractured any bone in your body in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a compound fracture injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that your bone fracture has had on your quality of life and any financial consequences of the fracture injury.

Making Compound Fracture Injury Claims for Compensation

Compound fracture injury claims have to show that a bone fracture has been sustained and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a compound fracture can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the fracture through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.

Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your compound fracture injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from the fracture injury, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before regaining mobility after your accident.

Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making compound fracture injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a compound fracture injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your compound fracture injury claim and advise you whether you have a claim for compound fracture injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.

How Much Can I Claim for a Compound Fracture Injury?

How much compensation for a compound fracture injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your own personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your compound fracture injury claim by considering the severity of your fracture injury in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident which was responsible for the bone fracture.

As mentioned above, the effect that the damaged bone makes to your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for compound fracture injury compensation along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a compound injury. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your bone being fractured – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future due to the nature of your accident – will also be integrated into your compound fracture injury claim.

You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to the fracture injury when making a claim for compound fracture injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following your accident and fracture injury, to additional transport costs if you are unable to drive during your recovery. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for compound fracture injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.

How Much Does it Cost to Make Compound Fracture Injury Claims for Compensation?

Provided that your solicitor believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for compound fracture injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your compound fracture injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for compound fracture injury compensation, you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, when your compound fracture injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.

However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” compound fracture injury claims on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for compound fracture injury compensation be unsuccessful. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “No Win, No Fee” compound fracture injury claim prior to accepting your claim.
