Compensation for a Transverse Fracture

When we think of a fractured bone, the most common idea that we get is of the bone split or broken into two or more parts right across the middle. Essentially this is what a transverse fracture is. One of the most common types of fractures in society, transverse fractures account for a large amount of fractures both at home and in the workplace and if you have sustained one through the negligence of another person then you should consider a compensation claim.

What are some common symptoms of a Transverse Fracture?

A transverse fracture is essentially a fracture which occurs at 90 degrees to the bone. This means that the bone has become fully separated or cracked in almost a straight line right across the middle. Transverse fractures can occur in more than one position down the bone and this could lead to the bone splitting into two or more parts depending on the severity of the fracture.

Due to the relatively straightforward nature of a transverse fracture they are often relatively easy to fix, especially compared to far more complicated fractures, but this isn’t a reason that you shouldn’t consider a compensation claim.

How could I find myself with a Transverse Fracture?

Transverse fractures are increasingly common right across society and there are a number of ways that you could sustain them. Some common examples of this include:

  • Injuries sustained during a trip or fall
  • Injuries sustained in a road traffic accident
  • Injuries sustained in a fall from height
  • Injuries sustained in a factory or on a construction site
  • Injuries sustained in the workplace.
