What Are Broken Coccyx Claims?

Broken coccyx claims enable you to recover compensation when you have broken your coccyx in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a broken coccyx you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that the broken coccyx has had on your quality of life and the financial consequences of an injured tailbone.

Making Broken Coccyx Claims for Compensation

Broken coccyx claims have to show that a tailbone injury has been sustained and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a broken coccyx can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party caused your coccyx injury through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.

Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your broken coccyx claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from your coccyx injury, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do or should not be made a priority ahead of recovering from your coccyx injury.

Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making broken coccyx claims for compensation with a lawyer as soon as practically possible. A lawyer will assess your claim for a broken coccyx, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your broken tailbone claim and advise you whether you have a claim for broken coccyx compensation which is worth your while to pursue.

How Much Compensation for a Broken Tailbone Will I Receive?

How much compensation for a broken coccyx you will be entitled to receive will depend on your own personal circumstances. A lawyer will calculate the value of your broken tailbone claim by considering the severity of your coccyx injury in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident which was responsible for breaking your coccyx.

As mentioned above, the effect that a broken coccyx makes to your quality of life will also be taken into account along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a coccyx injury. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of your coccyx injury accident – for example any confidence issues you may suffer due to the nature of your accident – will also be integrated into your broken tailbone claim.

You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your coccyx injury when making a claim for broken coccyx compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention for your broken coccyx to additional transport costs because you are unable to drive while recovering from your tailbone injury. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for broken coccyx compensation including overtime and pension contributions.

How much do Broken Coccyx Claims Cost?

Provided your lawyer considers that there is a strong likelihood of your claim for broken coccyx compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your broken tailbone claim on a “Contingency Fee” basis. This usually means that should you lose your broken tailbone claim you will not owe your lawyer for their legal fees and, if you win your broken tailbone claim, you will receive 100 percent of your compensation settlement.

However, not all lawyers offer “Contingency Fee” broken coccyx claims on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for broken coccyx compensation be unsuccessful. Your lawyer should explain the exact terms and conditions to you prior to accepting your claim for broken coccyx compensation.
