If you have suffered a leg injury in an accident, you may be entitled to make a no win, no fee leg injury compensation claim. But you will need expert legal advice to be successful in making a claim.
When handling leg injury compensation claims, Blackwater Law have established a reputation for always aiming to achieve the maximum compensation payout possible for clients who have suffered a leg injury due to an accident that was not their fault.
Our personal injury solicitors understand that a leg injury can have a significant impact on your ability to go about your daily life and carry out normal activities, often affecting your ability to work and perhaps even care for your children. Compensation will not completely make up for the pain and suffering the injury has caused, but by ensuring that you receive the maximum amount of leg injury compensation that you are entitled to, we can help you to move on with your life and recover from your accident.
Blackwater Law is recognised as one of the leading firms of personal injury lawyers in the country, so you can be sure you will receive the best legal advice possible. We have extensive experience of handling compensation claims for a wide range of leg injuries, including muscle strains, ligament damage and broken bones. We also handle compensation claims for injuries to other parts of the body as well, such as head injuries, back injuries and knee injuries.
The term “broken leg” can encompass a wide range of possible leg injuries that vary in their severity and the amount of pain and distress they can cause the victim. A clean break or fracture of the femur bone in your upper leg tends to heal quickly with no ongoing medical complications, while a serious leg injury involving multiple fractures may lead to possible long-term disability, discomfort and pain.
Stress fractures are tiny cracks in the bone caused by over a period of time by repeated forces being applied to the bone, and although relatively minor compared to full breaks can still cause prolonged discomfort, difficulties at work and can lead to complications. Stress fractures are a common workplace injury and is also a common sporting injury caused by excessive training.
A displaced fracture is a broken bone where the bone is not aligned as it should be at the point of the fracture. Such a fracture will have to be manipulated by a medical expert in order to bring it back in line before a cast can be applied to the leg.
At the other end of the scale, leg injury compensation can also be claimed for “comminuted” and “compound” fractures in any or all of the leg bones. This is where the bones have been shattered into separate pieces and/or may be protruding through the skin. These leg injuries are typically much more serious, and generally lead to larger leg injury compensation claims. In the most severe cases, such as those caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents or serious criminal acts, some victims may have to have their entire leg amputated.
Other Types of Fracture
There are many other types of fracture that you could be entitled to receive compensation for, including compression fractures (normally affecting the spine), avulsion fractures (the result of a muscle working so hard that it pulls on your bone, causing it to break) and impacted fractures (when a fractured bone forces into another bone, causing it to break). Other types of fractures include greenstick fractures and buckle fractures – both of which are unique to children.
Most leg injuries require medical attention and treatment of some kind – often over protracted periods of time – and many are at risk of further medical complications. As such, anyone who has sustained an injury to their leg that was not their fault can make a “no win, no fee” leg injury compensation claim, with the amount of compensation you are likely to receive dependent on the severity of your leg injury, the long-term prognosis for recovery and the recommended course of treatment, as well as your personal circumstances.
