Broken bones usually happen in accidents, caused either by a direct blow or excessive twist. Many of them are the fault of the victim themselves, but there are some that are caused by other people. If you suffer broken bones because of the actions of someone else, speak to our accident lawyer in Brymbo to claim the compensation you are legally entitled to.
How bones get broken and result in innocent victims chatting to our accident lawyer in Brymbo
Most of us have 206 bones in our body, a lot to choose from for breaks. The breaks happen quite easily, and could be because of:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Slip, trip or fall accidents
The bones of children are more likely to break because they are so soft, but they also heal quicker than the bones of an adult.
How can you be sure you have a broken bone?
The only way to be totally sure you have broken bones is by having an X-ray. Usually the fracture starts with an initial very severe pain, which soon starts to subside a little, and if it is your knee that is broken, because of the lack of muscle covering it, you can sometimes feel the break. If it is a clean break, a victim will sometimes hear the bone snap.
If there is any possibility that you have a broken bone, you need to go to your local A & E to get the proper medical care. Untreated, the bone can start to heal in the wrong position, and there could be slivers of bone lose, which can cause a lot of extra damage, and only a X-ray will show them.
Treatment for broken bones
The way broken bones are treated depends on which bone you have broken, but could include any of the following:
- Support bandages
- Plaster cast
- Painkillers and icepacks
- Surgery to realign bones
- Surgery to insert pins or plates
Once treated, most bones take 6 – 8 weeks to heal, and leave no ill effects.
