Bringing a compensation claim for a fracture to the skull or jaw

A skull fracture occurs when a force that is strong enough to break bone impacts upon the skull. There are many different types of incidents that can cause this including being hit with an object, falling over and hitting the ground, the impact of a car accident, or a workplace accident involving falling from a height. Jaw fractures commonly occur as a consequence of assaults, slips, and falls.

When starting the process of bringing a claim for an injury relating to a skull fracture, it is important to keep in mind the following.

  • Preservation of evidence and inspection of the accident scene – in the case of serious accidents you should get a forensic engineer on the scene. They can attend at the scene of the accident and record what they have observed by taking measurements, sketches, notes, and photographs. You should also retain your own notes and photos where possible.
  • Enquire about the availability of other forms of evidence – for example, there may be CCTV footage in the public area where the accident occurred. Or you may need to take down the details of witnesses who saw the accident happen. If your accident happens at work, you will need to take statements from your colleagues and ensure that your employer preserves the accident scene until a forensic specialist can assess it.
  • Keep written records of your appointments with doctors and specialists – ask them to provide copies of their records and keep a note of all the medications you have taken.
