Broken bones and fractures

There are many injuries that people can sustain that can result in broken bones or fractures.

Some breaks and fractures can heal within a matter of weeks however there can be some that are more serious.  Some breaks or fractures can result in time off work.

Recuperation from a break can be made more complicated if there are multiple injuries, possibly resulting in physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and follow up checks with a specialist.

Similarly fractures can vary in severity, with them being either a closed (simple) fracture where the skin remains intact, or an open (compound) fracture where the bone breaks the surface of the skin and causes a wound.

Compound fractures are more serious as they carry a higher risk of infection and more often than not will require surgery.

A comminuted fracture is where the bone splits into multiple pieces. This type of fracture can take much longer to heal and may result in prolonged time off work and long term disability.

In a compensation claim, the claimant needs to be able to prove that the fracture or broken bone was caused as a result of the other party’s fault or negligence. Claims can vary but generally speaking, you may be able to claim for pain, suffering, loss of earnings, care costs and other expenses incurred as a direct result of the injury.
