No Win No Fee Fracture Injury Solicitors  

Any and all kinds of fractured bones and broken bones can be extremely painful, and are normally accompanied with a substantial recovery time or prognosis for the injury. It can be difficult to get yourself back on track with your routine and work schedule after facing a fracture or breakage, and you could find yourself seeking some financial compensation for your burdening injury. 
 
If you have a bone fracture or breakage that was not your fault, and are seeking to pursue a claim for some financial compensation, contact MG Legal’s No Win No Fee injury solicitors. 

What is the difference between a fracture and a break? 

Medically speaking, a bone that has suffered from a crack of any kind, whether partial or all the way through is called a fracture. Here in the UK, we often use the phrase ‘broken bone’ for this kind of crack, or fracture, that goes all the way through the bone. Essentially, therefore, there is no real difference between the two terms.  
 
A broken bone that has suffered a crack all the way through, and has damaged the surrounding tissue at the same time, is much more complicated to heal than a smaller, more simple fracture. 

What are the different kinds of fractured bones? 

A simple fracture- this consists of a single, simple crack going through a bone that has caused no further damage to the surrounding tissue or the skin. 
 
Transverse fractures- this is a fracture of the bone in a single, straight line. 
 
Partial fracture- an incomplete crack or fracture in the bone.  
 
Spiral fracture- a spiral fracture is one that essentially spirals around the bone. It is commonly caused by a twisting, spiral force, from things such as machinery. 
 
Compression fracture- this kind of bone fracture occurs when a bone is crushed by a force, and creates a broken bone that is wider in appearance. These fractures can commonly occur to the spine, and even cause a collapsed vertebra. 
 
Stress fracture- often known also as hairline fractures, these bone fractures look like small cracks that only partially go through the bone. 
 
Oblique fracture- this is a fracture that is diagonal across the bone.  
 
Displaced fracture- many other kinds of fractures can also be displaced fractures. This is where, as part of the fracture, the bone has become misaligned. This requires medical attention to be brought, or popped, back into place. 

How much is my fracture compensation claim worth? 

Broken bones and fractures bones can vary hugely in severity, complexity, and prognosis time. The main factor determining this is which kind of fracture has happened and which bone has been injured. 
 
The expected compensation for the injury alone, known as general damages, can be estimated using the Judicial College guidelines. The amount for different fractures based on these guidelines can be seen below. 
 
However, you could achieve further compensation for fractures, known as special damages. These cover: 
 
Fracture rehabilitation and treatment 
 
Loss of any earnings during recovery 
 
Potential loss of earnings for any long-term or permanent damage 
 
Travel expenses 
 
Specialist equipment

Is there a time limit for my fracture compensation claim? 

You usually always have to make any fracture personal injury claims within three years of the accident or injury occurring. Still, this is not always the case. There is no time limit if you are pursuing a fracture injury claim for: 
 
Someone who does not themselves have the mental capacity to make their own claim 
 
A child who is under the age of eighteen. Minors will have three years from the date of their 18th birthday to do so.
