Broken Fibulas and Personal Injury* Claims

If you have had the misfortune to break your fibula in an accident for which you were not entirely at fault, you may have the right to make broken fibula personal injury* claims for compensation. This page explains the most frequently used procedures for making personal injury* claims for broken fibula compensation in Ireland; however, at a time when you may still be in a significant amount of pain from your fibula injury, it is often more beneficial to you to have these procedures completed on your behalf by an experienced personal injury* claims solicitor to ensure you receive a fair and adequate settlement of broken fibula personal injury* compensation.

Qualifying for Broken Fibula Personal Injury* Compensation

In order to qualify for broken fibula personal injury* compensation, it has to be shown that you sustained a broken fibula due to somebody else´s carelessness. This carelessness might manifest as a negligent action – such as when a car driver pulls out in front of you without looking and you break your fibula in the subsequent collision – or from a negligent inaction, such as when your employer fails to adhere to health and safety regulations at work and you have a fall at work which results in a broken fibula personal injury*. As long as the accident in which your fibula was broken was the direct result of somebody else´s negligence, you should be qualified to make broken fibula personal injury* claims for compensation.

Your Health Comes Before Broken Fibula Personal Injury* Claims

Irrespective of the circumstances in which you sustained your fibula injury, it is vital that you make your health your priority. No amount of broken fibula personal injury* compensation will make up for a prolonged health issue which could have been avoided with immediate professional medical attention; and furthermore, if you exacerbated your fibula injury by your own lack of care, the settlement of your broken fibula personal injury* claim may be reduced to reflect your own contribution to your injury. This comment applies equally to keeping broken fibula follow-up appointments after your discharge from hospital or if you made your fibula injury worse by trying to collect evidence of negligence at the scene of your accident.

Claiming Broken Fibula Compensation in Ireland

All broken fibula personal injury* claims have to be submitted to the Injuries Board Ireland for assessment within two years of the accident in which your fibula was broken. Although this may seem like plenty of time in which to collect evidence in support of personal injury* claims for a broken fibula, it is often better to submit your application for assessment sooner rather than later, as the Injuries Board Ireland´s remit is to assess the value of compensation awards for broken fibula injuries rather than allocate blame for your fibula injury.

Should the negligent party deny their liability for your fibula injury, or the Injuries Board Ireland´s assessment of your broken fibula personal injury* claim be less than your solicitor calculates you are entitled to, you will be able to obtain an Authorisation from the Injuries Board Ireland to pursue your claim for broken fibula personal injury* compensation through the courts. To delay submitting an assessment for broken fibula personal injury* compensation to the Injuries Board Ireland, could extend how long it takes to resolve your broken fibula personal injury* claim.

Broken Fibula Compensation Settlements in Ireland

The reason why so many compensation awards for broken fibula injuries assessed by the Injuries Board Ireland are rejected by claimants and their solicitors is that the application form for assessment (both online and paper copy) allows little room for claimants to elaborate on the effect that a broken fibula personal injury* has made to their quality of life. Although fair and adequate broken fibula compensation settlements in Ireland can be resolved in court after the Injuries Board Ireland´s assessment, it is often much more effective to have a solicitor negotiate broken fibula personal injury* claims with the negligent party´s insurers as soon as it is known how much compensation for a broken fibula personal injury* you are entitled to.

Broken fibula compensation settlements in Ireland should not only account for the pain and suffering you experienced during your accident, but also for the physical and emotional consequences throughout your recovery from a broken fibula personal injury*. Therefore, if you are unable to complete everyday tasks, drive or engage in leisure and social pursuits because you have a broken fibula, these factors should be included in broken fibula personal injury* claims. Any psychological trauma you have experienced due to the nature of the accident in which you broke your fibula or due to your immobility can also be incorporated into a claim for broken fibula compensation, and broken fibula compensation settlements in Ireland should also account for any financial costs you have incurred which are directly attributable to your broken fibula personal injury* to ensure that you are no worse off financially than if the accident in which your fibula was broken had never happened.
