A fracture, or broken bone, is frequently the result of a high force impact. There are many different types of fracture, which are broadly classified into ’closed ‘ or simple fractures and ’open ‘ or compound fractures, with motorcyclists often sustaining multiple fractures to the same limb.
Severe fractures may lead to limb shortening and surgery may be required. If you’ve suffered a fracture as a result of a motorcycle accident, it’s important that your legal representative obtains expert evidence from specialist orthopaedic surgeons as awards for fracture injuries vary depending upon the severity and duration of the symptoms.
At Motorcycle Law Scotland, we work closely with some of the best specialist orthopaedic surgeons in Scotland.
