Bone injuries are caused by bending, fracturing and even breaking and can happen at home, work or on the roads, and it takes just a lapse of judgement or misunderstanding for this type of injury to happen. Most people suffer bone injuries as a result of road accidents, slips, trips and falls, accidents at the workplace or even during sporting events or workouts. Fortunately, bone injuries are classified as a personal injury and patients can seek compensation to help cover for the medical expenses of treatment as well as inconveniences caused. If you have been injured, the best option is to seek an experienced solicitor who can process your bone injury compensation claim.
The exact amount of compensation awarded to eligible claims varies depending on a number of factors. Compensation is calculated by the type and severity of the bone injury, including total medical expenses, lost wages during treatment, recuperation, inconveniences caused and recovery procedures. The compensation may range from £500 to £400,000 or more, again depending on the severity of the injury. Mild inflammation and pain may attract low compensation while injuries like complete/open fractures, complicated fractures and broken or fragmented bones attract more due to their severity. Since bone injuries are very delicate (which can lead to permanent disability, loss of working capacity or even death), they are highly compensated.
In order to make a bone injury compensation claim, the actual victim or their relatives needs to present a strong case to proceed. Claims are made using comprehensive documentation of the nature of the accident, injury, severity, medical expenses and lost wages. While most injuries have obvious symptoms, such as total fracture and dislocations, other bone injuries may take longer to fully understand. However, there are various signs and symptoms that can be used to diagnose a bone injury.
Painful sensations and inflammation of joints, bones and surrounding muscles should provide sufficient reason for visiting a professional licensed doctor. Other symptoms include pain after long walks or foot activity, recurring inflammation, loss of muscle strength, broken bones, dislocations, fractures and bending. Diagnosis should also be done by a professional medical practitioner and you should seek a medical check-up immediately if any of the above symptoms are evident. Diagnosis range from simple question and answer sessions to comprehensive procedures like x-rays and bone scans.
There are a number of types of bone injuries, with the more common ones known as a broken bone or a fractured bone, but there are also other names for types of fractures and breaks as follows:
Compensation is only awarded to victims whose cases have been won in court or as a compensation package agreed outside of court by those responsible for the injury. In order to make a compensation claim you will need to provide evidence of your bone injury and medical expenses, including exact receipts issued for treatments, evidence of lost wages and proof of irresponsibility to the injury. It is advisable to contract professional solicitors and attorneys for court representation and bargaining. Once all the evidence and documents have been provided, your solicitor will compile a case seeking your deserved compensation. Usually, diagnosis, treatment and recuperation process reports are required for the calculation of the compensation amount.
When looking for compensation for personal injuries, going for a no-win-no-fee solicitor is always the best option. These solicitors do not demand any payment prior to winning your case and will not charge fees for lost claims. However, they do take a small percentage of the awarded compensation. There are many personal injury solicitors in the market and choosing an experienced professional should be a top priority.
Compensation claims should be made as soon as the accident or diagnosis is made. However, claims can still be made 3 years after the initial injury, especially for cases that can take longer to show symptoms. Victims only need to present their evidence and documents to their chosen team of lawyers and the rest will be handled by the professionals in court proceedings, should it reach that far. More information on personal injuries and bone injury can be learnt from the UK legislation and national resource pages.
It is important to visit a professional doctor whenever bone injury symptoms appear and compensation claims should be made immediately after diagnosis. The amounts are awarded for all types of bone injuries including hip injury, collar-bone injuries, ankle, knee, wrist, elbow and leg-bone injuries. It is also important to choose experienced solicitors, such as Tylers Solicitors, who have no-win-no-fee provisions.
