A compound fracture injury occurs when you have broken a bone which penetrates the skin and lacerates the soft tissue surrounding it. It is a terrible injury to sustain, as the psychological trauma can almost be as bad as the physical pain you sustain when the injury occurs, and the lacerations caused by the compound fracture can leave permanent scarring. All of these elements have to be taken into account when you are making a compound fracture injury compensation claim due to your injuries being caused by somebody else´s negligence.
As well as claiming for the psychological and physical trauma suffered in a compound fracture injury compensation claim, you should get expert opinion as to whether the costs of plastic surgery can be integrated into a claim for compound fracture injury compensation. You should also ensure that special damages to cover the costs of medical treatment and loss of earnings while you recover are also included, and this is why you should always speak with an experienced personal claims solicitor when making a compound fracture injury compensation claim.
Making a Compound Fracture Injury Compensation Claim
A claim for compound fracture injury compensation is always initially made to the Injuries Board Ireland. Because of the potential value of such a claim, it is essential that the application form is completed as comprehensively as possible and supported with as much relevant documentation as can be gathered. It is possible that – again due to the potential value of a compound fracture injury compensation claim – that the negligent party will deny their responsibility for your injury, or claim that you contributed to it by your own lack of care.
In both these events, the Injuries Board Ireland will decline to make an assessment of your injury and issue you with an authorisation to pursue your claim through the courts. Litigation might also be required if the Injuries Board Ireland makes an assessment of your compound fracture injury claim which is inappropriate for the trauma you have experienced, or insufficient to cover the support of your family. These are just a few of the reasons why you need expert advice from an experienced personal injury claims solicitor when making a compound fracture injury compensation claim.
