Sternum Injury Compensation Claims Information
Provided that the sustained injury was due to the negligence of another party then you should be in a position to claim compensation for a sternum injury, such as a fractured or broken sternum. There are certain circumstances that could reduce the amount of compensation that you are entitled to, such as if you was partially responsible for the accident or waited for a substantial period of time before seeking medical attention, or if you have already consented to an unsolicited offer of compensation from the insurance of the negligent party. However, with the help of a professional solicitors, such as Tylers Solicitors, we can evaluate your case and recommend whether you have a claim. If we feel that your case is worth pursuing then we will proceed to work hard so you will be fully compensated for your sternum injury at the highest possible amount. For more information on our claiming compensation for your sternum injury, call Tylers Solicitors today.
When is it Possible to Claim Compensation for a Sternum Injury?
Many sternum fractures occur during car accidents when the driver is thrust against the steering wheel or when the passengers of the vehicle are violently thrust forward but are restrained by a seat-belt. If the cause of the injury was not your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation for a broken sternum.
Self-inflicted injuries from weightlifting or exercising at the gym, from using too much weight, would not qualify for compensation unless the gym equipment was faulty in some way that directly impacted and caused the sternum fracture or injury. If you’re unsure whether you can claim for sternum injury, speak to a member of our team.
Can I Claim for Sternum Injuries at Work?
If you’ve suffered an injured sternum or sternum fracture whilst at work that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation. If the sternum injury occurred from doing your job or on your employer’s private property, you may be able to make a claim. It is up to your employer to ensure that your workplace is a safe, working environment. So, if you’ve experienced blunt force trauma at work that’s caused your sternum injury, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Do I Have to Begin My Sternum Injury Compensation Claim?
Any physical injury, like a broken sternum, require that the claim process is initiated within three years of the injury taking place to be eligible for compensation. Since any delay in medical treatment can probably see your compensation value lowered by up to 25%, it is very important that you seek treatment from a professional medical practitioner as quickly as possible. This is because there could be an accusation that you may have aggravated your injury through your own lack of care. It would also be to your advantage if you traded insurance and individual details with those included in the accident and gathered the points of interest of any witnesses and that you report the accident to the police in the event that they didn’t go to the scene.
In the event that you are approached with an early offer of compensation, before you even have the sufficient energy to consider your claim, we encourage you to pass your compensation claim to us and we can figure out whether or not it is a reasonable and exact representation of compensation for your injuries. Alongside the suffering that has been brought on by your injuries, different variables, such as your loss of earnings, should be included within the insurance company’s settlement offer to you.
In case of an unsolicited offer, an accomplished solicitor, such as ourselves, has the knowledge to answer any questions that you may have on the circumstances of your compensation amount and can suggest whether or not it is a feasible offer.
If My Sternum Injury Claim Isn't Successful, Do I Still Need To Pay?
Tylers Solicitors operate a no-win, no-fee policy so you can rest assured that no fees are due unless your claim for compensation for your sternum fracture is successful.
