A fall from height, a heavy impact in a fall or an impact caused in a car accident. These are just three examples of situations where you may end up with a broken arm bone. When this happens, you will likely suspect you have broken your arm. You will feel pain in the affected area, and it will swell and bruise quite quickly too.
Being in an accident of any sort is a shock to the system. When you realise you have a serious injury like a broken arm, it can take time to get over the pain and to come to terms with what has occurred. You might also feel emotional and angry if someone else was the cause of your accident and your arm injury.
How long does it take to recover from a broken arm bone?
This depends on how bad the break was. There are several different types of fractures you can suffer from, depending on how the accident occurred and the forces involved. The simplest fracture – and the quickest one to heal – is a hairline fracture. However, in the worst-case scenario, you may suffer a complex break that could involve breaks to more than one part of the bones in your arm.
This may require surgery to heal from, to make sure the ends of the bone are properly aligned and then fixed together with screws and other surgical-grade bolts to ensure they mend properly. This will also leave you with scars on your arm, which could be considered when assessing any amount of compensation that could potentially be awarded to you.
