Most of us have 206 bones in our bodies, all just waiting to be broken. The majority of the time when a bone is broken, it has happened in an accident. They really are quite strong, but a sudden direct blow, or excessive twist can cause a break. If you suffer a broken bone in an accident, and the accident was the fault of someone else, our accident lawyer in Byfleet can help you claim the compensation you are entitled to.
Effects of broken bones
The way a broken bone affects your life depends on what bone has been damaged. Most of us have either broken a limb, or know someone who has, and that a broken arm or leg usually heals with no ill effects. The same applies to much of our skeleton, but what if you break a bone in your spine, a chest bone or maybe part of your skull?
Then the breaks are not so straightforward and can cause other damage as well. Part of your skull being broken could cause a brain injury for instance, and that might change your life forever.
Most bones breaks will heal in 6-8 weeks, including the breaks that are more serious. But the other injuries those breaks could have caused could leave permanent damage to the innocent victim.
