    One of the most common injuries that occurs from a personal injury accident that accident solicitors in Kingskerwell handle are fractures.

    Common causes of fractures

    There are many ways a fracture can happen, just a few examples being:

    • Slips, trips or falls
    • Car accidents
    • Sporting accidents
    • Violent attacks
    • Accidents in the workplace

    A fracture is a term used by the medical professional for broken bones, cracked bones, crushed bones and some other bone damages. It is a common misconception that a fractured bone and a broken bone are two different injuries. A fracture occurs when strong force, impact, pressure or stress is applied.

    Symptoms of a fracture

    The main symptom of a fracture is pain. It can often be very severe and can cause you to feel nauseous and light-headed. Pain will increase on trying to move the injured area. Other symptoms include swelling, bruising and the area looking deformed.

    Diagnosis

    Fractures can be diagnosed by an x-ray. A doctor upon a physical examination will use an x-ray to confirm their diagnosis.

    Occasionally a fracture may be difficult to detect on an x-ray and a MRI or CT scan may be needed.

    Treatment

    The treatment will depend on the type of fracture. Usually the bones need to be put back into their normal position. Often a cast or brace is used to keep the bones in position until they heal. Occasionally surgery is also required to insert plates or screws, to hold the bone in place.

    Pain relief will also be administered to make you feel more comfortable.

    In the long term physiotherapy may be needed to help you regain mobility and strength in the affected area.
