There are many different types of accident that can lead to the victim suffering a broken leg. At Watermans, we frequently see cases where our clients have broken a leg as a result of an accident that wasn't their fault.
In the workplace, slips, trips and falls frequently result in damage to the lower body - which can mean anything from minor injuries to major broken bones and even permanent disability.
Similarly, road traffic accidents can lead to leg injuries for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians and in many cases there is a clear case showing that someone else is to blame.
Leg breaks are also common sporting injuries, and can occur as a result of poor maintenance and bad design in public areas including falls due to broken pavements, defective buildings, playgrounds, parks and other public places.
If you've suffered a leg break as the result of an accident in Scotland that wasn't your fault, then Watermans has the experience to put together a case for compensation on your behalf.
