What Are Broken Shin Bone Injury Claims?
Broken shin bone injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have broken your shin bone 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 shin bone injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that the broken shin bone injury has had on your quality of life and any financial consequences of a broken leg.
Making Broken Shin Bone Injury Claims for Compensation
Broken shin bone injury claims have to show that a broken tibia has been sustained and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a broken tibia can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party caused your shin bone 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 shin bone injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from your broken tibia, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority ahead of recovering from your shin bone injury.
Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making broken shin bone injury claims for compensation with a lawyer as soon as practically possible. A lawyer will assess your claim for a broken shin bone injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your broken shin bone injury claim and advise you whether you have a claim for broken shin bone injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.
How Much Can I Claim for a Broken Shin Bone Injury?
How much compensation for a broken shin bone injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your own personal circumstances. A lawyer will calculate the value of your broken shin bone injury claim by considering the severity of your damaged tibia in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident which was responsible for the injury to your shin bone.
As mentioned above, the effect that a tibia injury makes to your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for broken shin bone injury compensation along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a broken shin bone. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your shin bone injury being sustained – for example any confidence issues you may suffer in the future due to the nature of your accident – will also be integrated into your broken shin bone injury claim.
You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your damaged tibia when making a claim for broken shin bone injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following your accident and broken shin bone injury, to additional transport costs while you are unable to drive during your recovery. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for broken shin bone injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.
How Much Does it Cost to Make Broken Shin Bone Injury Claims for Compensation?
Provided that your lawyer believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for broken shin bone injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your broken shin bone injury claim on a “Contingency Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for broken shin bone injury compensation, you will not owe your lawyer for their legal fees and, when your broken shin bone injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.
However, not all lawyers offer “Contingency Fee” broken shin bone injury 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 shin bone injury compensation be unsuccessful. Your lawyer should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “Contingency Fee” broken shin bone injury claim prior to accepting your claim.
