Fracture Injuries

If you or a family member suffered a fracture injury, we realise that such injuries cause acute pain and suffering.

There are a range of different types of fracture injuries not alone because the human body has two hundred and six bones, including the bones in the skull, spine, ribs, arms and legs.

Every person is unique, and every person’s skeletal structure is unique in terms of how it fractures and how it recovers from those fractures.

An important feature when we consider acting for a client who has suffered a fracture injury is where that fracture is, what type of fracture is it, and what is the prognosis for the future potential arthritic consequences for that fracture.

In some cases, fracture injuries can be very serious for the injured person, for instance if it involves spinal fractures or fractures of the pelvis and lower limbs. In those situations, the injured party will likely be absent from work and may have concern about their ability to return to work. There may be a requirement to consider how the fracture injury affects the injured person’s ability to work to their full capacity or as they did before the accident. We at Downes solicitors have represented thousands of clients over the years with fracture injuries.

If you or a family member has suffered a fracture injury and wish to pursue a claim, please contact Downes solicitors for specialist claims and legal advice.

What Our Clients Say?

I can more than highly recommend Downes Solicitors – David Ryan was an absolute gentleman to deal with. In a time of great worry, his calming professionalism along with both strong knowledge and experience left me confident to leave all legal issues in his capable hands, while I focused on trying to recover as best I could from an accident. David consistently updated me on all matters even through covid 19 and was always at the other end of a phone to answer a query. I was glad for his good advice and will be eternally indebted to both David and his team Downes Solicitors.

    Personal Injury : Your Top Questions Answered

    How long can a personal injury claim take?
    AYour claim length will depend on a number of factors such as; your type of injuries, the insurance company your dealing with, your PIAB application, the assessment and then whether you move on to legal proceedings.
    How much compensation will I be entitled to?
    AThat figure is hard to immediately determine. The book of quantum can help to give you some indication but the other factors that will be taken into consideration are:

    • Liability: who was at fault for the accident.
    • Injuries: the severity of the injuries
    • Expenses: all of the bills that were paid.
    Will my claim go to court?
    A Every case is different. In the majority of personal injury cases, the person making the claim will not end up in a courtroom.

    It is possible that the person at fault will seek to settle outside of court and your case will be settled in a meeting attended by you, your solicitor, and barrister to negotiate your settlement.

    It is entirely up to you whether to accept the settlement offered. If you do not accept then it will move to a court hearing where a judge will decide how much your settlement will be.
