Many of us will break or fracture a bone at some point in our lives and, while it’s very painful, we usually recover without long term problems. However, some breaks and fractures can be more serious and you may have to give up work or even lose the ability to live independently.
Medical professionals refer to any break of a bone as a fracture, no matter how serious your injury is. We’re aware that your situation can be complicated, especially if you’ve suffered multiple fractures, compound fractures or multi-limb fractures.
Can I Make A Broken Bone Or Fracture Compensation Claim?
If you’ve suffered a serious break or fracture that someone else was responsible for our lawyers could help you claim compensation.
This can help pay for things like:
Specialist equipment for your home and car
Rehabilitation to overcome your injuries
Loss of earnings
Expenses you’ve incurred.
We’ve helped people who've suffered fractures in a range of different accidents, including road traffic accidents, workplace accidents and falls from height.
Are There Time Limits For Making A Broken Bone Or Fracture Claim?
You usually need to make a claim within three years of your accident. There’s no time limit if you’re making a claim for:
Your child who is under 18 (once they’re 18 they’ll have three years to make a claim)
Someone who doesn’t have the mental capacity to handle their own claim.
If your injuries are from a
violent crime, you’ll have two years to make a claim. There are different time limits for accidents that happen abroad. These will be based on the specific country’s laws and it’s best to contact us as soon as possible. Can I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
Most of the broken bone claims we handle are on a
No Win No Fee basis. This means there's nothing for you to pay upfront and you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim isn’t successful*.
We can help you decide if a No Win No Fee claim is right for you,

The pain you’ve suffered
Any loss of earnings
