Compensation for a Bowing Fracture

Although there are a number of different injuries that you could consider making a compensation claim for, fractures are perhaps one of the most painful and often hardest to identify. There are many different fractures that you could sustain as the result of different types of accidents, but one of the most common, especially among children is a bowing fracture and this generally occurs in the lower arm or forearm area.

Although fractures are something that can often be sustained through the clumsiness of an individual, in some cases they could be caused by the negligence of another person and if you find yourself sustaining a fracture as a result of this, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover your costs. 

What type of fracture is a bowing fracture?

A bowing fracture generally occurs when the bone bends or curves as the result of either an impact or through development, particularly as a child. If you have been involved in an accident then your bone could have sustained an impact which might have caused it to simply bend rather than break altogether, in some situations this can be far worse than a traditional break as the bone may have to be bent to be put back into place and this can often be rather painful for the individual involved.

Where might I sustain a bowing fracture?

You could be subjected to a bowing fracture in a number of different circumstances and some of these include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents 
  • Problems during growth and development
  • Falls in the playground
  • Falls from a height 
  • Trips and slips which result in a significant impact.
