Broken Bones Claims at Work
It’s not always a serious accident that can cause a broken bone. Even a simple fall or an awkward turn or landing following a trip or a slip can result in a broken or fractured bone.
Regardless how serious the incident - if the accident you suffered resulted in broken bones following an incident that was not your fault - then you may well be entitled to claim financial compensation.
Types of broken bones
Cracked or broken bone
This is what is generally termed as a fracture. A fracture can happen anywhere in the skeleton.
These are where the skin surrounding the break has remained intact and are frequently referred to as ‘closed’ or ‘simple’ fractures.
This is the most serious of fractures as the bone breaks through the skin and is open to infection and the outside world.
When a serious fracture occurs, particularly breaks that have an effect on a joint, this can often lead to osteoarthritis, which is regarded as one of the common types of arthritis in the United Kingdom.
Typical symptoms of a broken bone:
- Pain and swelling
- Bruising in the area and discolouring around the bone or joint
- A grinding or grating sensation or sound in the joint or bone
- Inability to move around or put weight or move the injured limb
- The injured limb or body part appears bent at an unnatural angle
- Bleeding, if it is an open fracture
