Fracture & Broken Bone Compensation


Bone fractures are a serious injury and can have a detrimental effect on your day to day life. If you've suffered this type of injury due to an accident that wasn't your fault in a road, work or public place accident you should seek legal advice on if you can make a compensation claim.

Often broken bones require significant time off work for recovery as well as specialist treatment and rehabilitation. In the most serious of cases, such as spinal cord damage, the injured person may never fully recover and require healthcare for the rest of their life. Therefore the average amount of compensation awarded varies from case to case, depending on the injury type, the parts of the body affected and the severity of the damage.

To find out more about how much you would expect to receive, see our awards and settlements guide.

Types of Bone Fractures

Broken bones are commonly caused by falls, vehicle accidents or being struck/trapped by an object. If your injury is the result of another person's negligence; it's only right that they should be held accountable and you seek compensation for treatment, injury and any time off work. Some of the fracture injuries we have secured compensation for include:

  • Broken Toe or Finger
  • Broken Ankle or Foot such as the Talus or Heel
  • Broken Wrist
  • Broken Collarbone or Cheekbone
  • Broken Arm or Leg
  • Broken or Cracked Ribs
  • Fractured Skull
  • Spinal Cord Injury

Treatment for Broken Bones

As bone is living tissue often it heals over time if held in position with a plaster cast, metal rod or splint depending on the severity and location of the fracture. There can often be longer term effects such as scaring, deformity or restriction in mobility which may require further corrective treatments and therapy.

Surgery & Hospital Care for Bone Fractures

In some cases surgery is required to re-seat bones which have come out of alignment; or even to add metal support (pins) for breaks in multiple places or where the bone has been shattered or crushed. These types of treatment are known as Orthopaedic surgery and can require multiple procedures supported by a long term process of physiotherapy.

The whole course of treatment, recovery and ongoing support can be costly and have a dramatic effect on you and your family's life. Therefore the compensation you receive should reflect all these circumstances and our personal injury specialists will be able to provide all the advice and support you need to make a comprehensive claim.
