The fibula is the secondary bone between the knee and ankle. It is the bone to which all the muscles of the leg are attached (such as the calf muscle) and, as such, plays a very important role in a person´s mobility. When the fibula is broken, an extended period of rest is necessary and it could mean a lot of time away from work. If your broken fibula has been caused by somebody else´s negligence, you are entitled to claim for any loss of earnings or other expenses you incur as part of a broken fibula injury compensation claim.
The “basic” value of a broken fibula injury compensation claim is calculated by the Injuries Board Ireland after you undergo an independent examination. Their assessment is based on the “Book of Quantum”, which lists compensatory amounts of broken fibula injury compensation subject to the severity of your injury and damage to surrounding nerves, tendons and muscles. Any expenses you incur, or loss of income you suffer, as a result of your broken fibula injury need to be added to a broken fibula injury compensation claim to ensure that you receive the correct settlement.
Making a Broken Fibula Injury Compensation Claim
This is why it is always in your best interests to use the services of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor when making a broken fibula injury compensation claim. The area on the application form to the Injuries Board Ireland is particularly inadequate for an explanation of the expenses incurred due to your injury, and a solicitor will know how to claim your full entitlement. Sometimes the special damages you are entitled to claim can add up to more that the basic value of a broken fibula injury compensation claim, so it is worth ensuring that you claim everything you are due.
A solicitor will also be able to represent you in litigation, should the negligent party deny their liability for your injury or claim that you contributed to it by your own lack of care. A broken fibula injury compensation claim may also have to be settled in court if the assessment by the Injuries Board Ireland of your broken fibula injury claim is unacceptable to you or the negligent party, and all claims for broken fibula injury compensation which involve children have to be approved by court before payment of any settlement can be paid.
