Some fractures can be simple and heal with no long term consequences. Others can cause long standing complications such as a weakness or osteoarthritis.
If you settle your claim on a full and final basis on the assumption that the injury is a simple one but there turns out to be such a complication you will have no right of Redress to go back and get more compensation for the deterioration.
If you suffer a fracture you therefore must instruct the services of an expert lawyer who is alive to these issues and who will conduct your fracture compensation claim accordingly.
At Redress our will ensure that you are examined by an expert Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who will specifically address and consider the long term effects of your injury.
If there is a risk of future complications we will discuss this with you fully and ensure that the risk is accounted for by either negotiating a suitable uplift in your compensation or by seeking provisional compensation which specifically (and unusually) maintains your right to further compensation if there is a serious deterioration in your physical condition.
Our specialist lawyers will also ensure that you receive the best possible care and treatment in order that your injuries last for as short a time as possible and to ensure that the disruption to your life is kept to a minimum.
As well as arranging the services below we will ensure that the insurers for the party who caused the injury meet the cost of those services.
