Severe fractures

Fracturing a bone is not uncommon if you’ve been involved in an accident. But sometimes fractured bones can lead to more complications and can cause you a significant amount of pain. If you've been involved in an accident that wasn't your fault, and sustained severe fractures as a result, then you may potentially suffer long-term damage, be unable to work, and struggle to continue with your daily life.

Common types and causes

Sadly, fractured bones are quite a common injury, especially if you’ve been involved in an accident.

The most common causes are:

  • Road traffic accident
  • Workplace accident
  • Slip, trip or fall
  • Fall from height

If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, and suffered severe fractures as a consequence then you’ll need plenty of advice and support with regards to rehabilitation and looking after yourself.


Severe fractures can have a devastating impact. One of the main issues is to control the pain. Secondly, the impact that this could have on your every day life will be quite significant; don’t underestimate the damage that a severe fracture can have.

You may require extra care and support whilst your severe fracture mends and you’ll probably need physiotherapy for a long time after your accident. This can mean time off work, extra help around the home, and the support of friends and family. This is not something you can do alone, and nor should you have to.

What could your claim be worth?

Following an accident that resulted in a severe fracture, you may be entitled to make a serious injury claim. It’s tough to say exactly how much you can receive as each case is unique, however our specialist advisors are able to help guide you to getting the compensation you deserve.

This can have a knock-on affect on your family and the financial burden can weigh heavy.
