How a broken arm can affect you
If you have ever broken a bone in your body you will already be aware just how painful an experience it is. Asides from the pain it can also make various aspects of your life harder to cope with. Take a broken arm for example, there are many things you rely on your arms for, and without the full use of them, you may not be able to carry on with your life as normal.

Consider a broken arm – what would you find it difficult to do if this injury happened to you?
You wouldn’t be able to drive. This means that you might not be able to take your children to school in the morning. Would someone have to take them for you or would you have to pay for a taxi? You wouldn’t be able to drive to work. You could rely on public transport, depending on where you worked, but this will be another expense that you have to meet.
Maybe you work in factory or on a production line, perhaps you are a typist or a dance teacher. If you need to have full use of your arms for work you may even find that you have to take time off whilst you recover. If this is the case then there is a good chance that your income is going to suffer significantly during this recovery period.
