The femur is the strongest and thickest bone of the human body, and only breaks after a massive impact to the thigh. The femur connects the hip bone to the knee, and it is vital for a person´s mobility and to support the upper body. Where the upper part of the femur connects to the hip, a broken femur injury can cause permanent disability and has been known to be responsible for fatalities among elderly victims. Therefore, a broken femur injury compensation claim has to be managed with great skill to ensure it incorporates any expenses that a plaintiff will potentially face in the future.
Broken femur injuries usually occur in a road traffic accident or fall from great height. They often require extensive surgery, the insertion of a metal rod to support the broken leg and prolonged therapy to enable the injury to heal completely. The injury is likely to result in an extensive period of absence from work, and in many cases this can cause financial hardship to a family through the negligent act of another road user or employer. Ensuring that a broken femur injury compensation claim fully integrates any loss of earnings is one of the main reasons that 90% of people chose to use a solicitor when making a broken femur injury compensation claim.
