Orthopaedic Injury Compensation Claims
At some stage in your life, there is a likelihood that you may break a bone, whether it be a minor fracture from a fall, or a more serious injury sustained from a workplace incident or road traffic accident.
An orthopaedic injury can be long-lasting, affecting the joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, bones and nerves. Should you or a loved one experience a broken bone, you should expect to be treated within a hospital to ensure your procedure and recovery is as quick and problem-free as possible.

Orthopaedic Injury Claims
There’s absolutely no risk involved in inquiring about your position, or your claim, so it pays to speak with an expert. Ultimately, the only time you’ll end up paying for legal costs is if your case is successful – and even then you will only ever pay an agreed percentage of damages as a contribution to costs.
There is a time limit to make a claim, however, so it’s best to act as quickly as possible. Normally you have three years from the date of your treatment or from the date you realised your condition was a result of your treatment. If you were under the age of 18 when you received the treatment, you’ll have three years from your 18th birthday to make a claim.

How much will my claim cost?
All accident and emergency cases taken on by Hudgell Solicitors are handled on a no win no fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.
If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will be agreed before your case is carried out.
