It’s not just sticks and stones that cause broken bones, and at Brian Barr Solicitors, we understand that broken bones and fractures caused by accidents that were not your fault can have serious implications on your life.
You may be entitled to compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial impact of your injuries. Our experienced team is here to help you navigate the legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Common types of bone fractures include:
If you have suffered a serious bone fracture due to an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, it is important to understand your rights. At Brian Barr Solicitors, we can help you to pursue a compensation claim to cover your medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and other associated damages from your accident.
What may begin as a seemingly small fracture could have life changing consequences.
As well as the circumstances surrounding your injury, the total compensation you can receive depends on factors such as the severity of the fracture and the impact on your life. Every case is different and at Brian Barr we will ensure that we build a strong case to enable you to receive fair and appropriate compensation for your injury.
Compensation often includes:
Serious fractures can occur due to various accidents and incidents, causing significant pain, functional limitations, and long-term consequences.
It is important to remember that serious fractures can have long-lasting effects on an individual’s physical and also emotional well-being. The individual may require multiple surgeries, extended periods of immobilisation, rehabilitation, and the injury may lead to chronic pain or disability. Therefore, it is important to establish the cause of the accident, and if it was due to someone else’s negligence then you may be entitled to compensation. Although nothing can take away an injury or disability, financial compensation can help when you face the associated hurdles from your injury now and later in life.
Most personal injury claims in the UK are subject to a time limit of 3 years. However, some broken bone claims can benefit from exceptions to this rule, such as those relating to children under 18, and claims involving individuals lacking mental capacity.

Broken bones have the ability to heal by fusing back together over time. Therefore, treatment is mainly aimed at ensuring the healed bone is as strong as it was before the accident. This usually includes medical procedures that are designed to align the bone correctly, allowing it to heal in the right position.
More complex fractures may require surgical procedures to ensure a perfect alignment.
Common treatments include:
Most simple fractures are simply treated with a plaster cast, applied on top of bandages. One exception is longer bones, such as the femur, as these are more challenging to keep aligned. These are often aligned using nails, pins, and plates, before being immobilised into a cast.
