There are a number of types of fracture injuries that we frequently help people to claim compensation for. These include:
Beyond the immediate physical pain, the emotional aftermath of a fracture can affect your life. Feelings of anxiety, frustration or depression can emerge, especially if your injury affects your daily activities and work.
The financial implications can also be substantial. Medical bills for treatments, physiotherapy sessions, mental health appointments and lost wages due to time off work can be expensive.
Navigating the path to a fracture injury claim can feel overwhelming when you're already dealing with the physical and emotional aftermath of an injury. But with Switalskis’s support, the process becomes clearer and manageable. Here's a guide to help you grasp the steps involved in making a broken bone or fracture injury compensation claim:
Generally, personal injury claims must be started within three years from the date of the accident causing the injury. However, in cases where the severity or implications of your fracture weren’t immediately apparent, the time limit may be extended in certain circumstances.
In some cases, there are exceptions to the three-year timeframe:
Children: if the affected person is a child, a claim can be initiated anytime before their 18th birthday. Once they turn 18, they have until their 21st birthday to pursue the claim themselves.
Mental capacity: if you're representing someone who doesn't have the mental capacity to claim on their own, the typical time constraints may not apply.
It's always beneficial to start a claim early so we can make sure that every detail is addressed. We're here to guide and support you every step of the way. Please reach out at your earliest convenience and we'll help you to understand your options.
Compensation for fracture injuries is categorised into two main types:
The amount of compensation you might be able to claim will be unique to your personal circumstances. Consult with our solicitors and we’ll help you to understand how much you may be entitled to claim.
Claims may be funded on a no win, no fee basis. If you're concerned about managing potential costs, there are options available. If you have an insurance policy that provides coverage for specific accident scenarios, it might contribute towards your legal fees.
Speak to us as soon as possible and we’ll advise you on how best to fund your personal injury claim.
