Multiple Orthopaedic Injuries
Dealing with serious injury cases for over 30 years, and with a particular specialism in serious motorcycle accidents, we’ve seen virtually every kind of permutation of injury there is, and every combination too. Breaking one bone is painful and debilitating. Breaking two or more bones at the same time will likely seriously impact on your day to day life in the short term. For example, breaking both wrists may leave you unable to wash, dress or cook. A fracture to both an arm and a leg may render you immobile and unable to use crutches. While long term prognosis is often positive in these cases, it is all about the here and now and getting the help and treatment necessary to allow you to focus on the road to recovery.
No one is better equipped or has more expertise at knowing how to get you the best help to metaphorically – and sometimes literally – get you back on your feet, whilst also ensuring that you receive a compensation package that will meet all your present and future needs.

What should I do if I have a Multiple Orthopaedic Injury claim:
The first step in any claim is to contact our expert team who will discuss your case with you and start the process of getting the justice you deserve.
We know that serious multiple injury claims can often be very complicated to co-ordinate. Fortunately, our solicitors are all dedicated professionals who’ve all had plenty of experience in dealing with such things.
One of our main priorities is making sure that you have easy access to all the additional support and advice you need for issues like employment, benefits and welfare rights. If we think an interim payment of your compensation is necessary to help you keep going – whether it’s to help you move to a new home better suited to your changed needs, or to help pay for continued treatment – we will fight for it. Any claim will have a financial settlement, that is a given, but in cases involving multiple serious injuries, it is more about ensuring you get the proper care, treatment and living arrangements necessary to allow you to rebuild your life after injury and get back to being the very best you can be. It is also important to factor in care and treatment that you may need in the future. We have access to some of the leading housing and rehabilitation specialists, as well as medical experts, all of whom can assess your injuries fully and work with you and us to ensure that you are fully compensated to be able to recovery quickly and fully.
Our wealth of experience and expertise in dealing with multiple injuries means we can draw from a deep well of medical experts to not only help with your recovery but also to back up your claim. Some of the experts that we frequently use include:
- ENT Consultant
- General Surgeon
- Maxillofacial Surgeon
- Orthopaedic (Upper limb)
- Orthopaedic (Lower limb)
Is there a time limit for Multiple Orthopaedic Injury claims:
It is important to remember that a claim for any serious injury must be made within three years of the event. If the injured person is a child, then they have three years from the date of their 18th birthday. Fatal cases and cases in which the injured person lacks mental capacity (either before or as a result of the accident) can differ and you should contact our legal team for advice.
If you have suffered multiple serious injuries in an accident, then we recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can start your fight for justice and ensure you get the right level of compensation to help you rebuild your life after serious injury.
