Broken bone injury claims

How DAS Law can help you

Complicated bone breaks or fractures could have an impact on your long-term physical independence and mental wellbeing. Your injury may impact on your ability to work and support your family, your future career and participation in sports and hobbies. You may need medical treatment, rehabilitation, and require professional care and adaptions to your home life.

If you have suffered a broken bone injury from an accident that wasn’t your fault, our experienced team of specialist personal injury lawyers can provide you with practical legal advice and representation.

These are some of the outcomes we can achieve for you:

  • Obtaining compensation for your broken or fractured bone injury.
  • Recovery of lost income.
  • Arrange to get your car or motorcycle repaired and back on the road.
  • Obtaining an interim payment to pay for replacement motorcycling gear.
  • Obtaining compensation for treatment, rehabilitation, specialist equipment and care.
  • Important things to consider

    Here are some important things you should be aware of when making a claim for a fractured or broken bone injury.

    • Our lawyers are highly experienced in handling these types of claims in a wide range of scenarios, including slips & trips, falls from height, hit & run accidents, and car or motorcycling accidents.
    • You do not need to visit our offices. We can arrange meetings at your convenience at a time that is suitable for you.
    • In most cases, personal injury claims must be made within three years of the occurrence of the injury or the date on which you became aware of it.
    • It is important to instruct a lawyer who will know which medical experts to use, to understand all you can claim for and to achieve the best financial settlement for you.

    How much will it cost?

    Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)

    If you have a motor or home insurance policy which includes LEI cover, your legal costs may be covered by your policy (subject to the terms and conditions of the policy). If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.

    Conditional Fee Agreement (No win, no fee)

    If you do not have LEI cover, we can still deal with your injury claim through a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) – commonly known as ‘No Win, No Fee’. We also assist our clients in obtaining After The Event (ATE) insurance at no upfront cost.

    If you have legal expenses insurance, your legal costs may be covered by your policy

    By entering a CFA (subject to our terms of business) you will only have to pay a fee when we are successful in winning you compensation. You pay nothing if you lose your claim. This way you can ensure that your personal finances are not at risk when pursuing your personal injury claim. This option means that you won’t have to pay anything if your compensation claim isn’t successful.

    Our personal injury specialists will be happy to explain these options to you.

    It’s a common misconception that a fracture is different to a break. They are the same. Whatever the description, broken bones or fractures can lead to long term changes to your life.
