What happens when a bone is broken?

If you have sustained a broken bone through a Bristol car accident or any other serious accident, you will already know a little bit about what happens when a bone breaks because you have experienced it. However, it can be helpful during your recovery process to learn a little more about what has happened to you, to help you to understand the healing process, and how to avoid being injured again.

Dealing with the aftermath of a Bristol car accident can be difficult enough, but dealing with these feelings alongside a serious injury can be even more of a struggle, so it can help to know a little more about what you are dealing with.

If your Bristol car accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, then you may feel that you want vindication for what you have suffered. The best and healthiest way for you to go about this is through claiming compensation.

Accident Advice Helpline is the perfect place to go to help you to deal with the feelings you are experiencing after your Bristol car accident, as the team can offer you advice and support, as well as experienced personal injury lawyers to walk you through the process. You can call the helpline to talk about your Bristol car accident and the claims process, and our team will always be happy to help.

What you will experience

The first thing to know about breaking a bone is that the experience will be different for everyone. It depends on the circumstance in which you have broken the bone, how quickly it happens and which bone you break. However there are some more typical feelings, such as:

  • A deep ache in the area that the bone has been broken in. Some breaks may feel a little sharper, but for the most part it will feel more like an ache than a stabbing pain.
  • Pain. Pain comes next and will continue until you are treated. It will get worse if you panic, so try to remain calm.
  • Shock. Many people go into shock after breaking a bone as it is a big thing to deal with. This can include feeling cold, dizzy, nauseous or confused.

What you should do

If you think that you have broken a bone, there are a few things you should do right away, in order to deal with the situation as simply as you can.

  • Tell someone. If you think your bone is broken, tell the people you are with as quickly as you can so that they can be alerted to the situation and work with you to get you help.
  • Call the emergency services
  • Stay awake and stay calm. Talk to the people around you, think back over the day you have had, do whatever you can to avoid thinking about your current situation.
  • After receiving the medical attention you need, you may want to consider seeking compensation if you believe the accident was somebody else’s fault. Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline for advice and to make a claim. Just call 0800 689 0500 to get started.
