    Broken bones and compensation solicitors in Epping Forest

    Broken bones usually happen in an accident of some sort. For example, if someone falls from height, they may break a few of their bones.  Or the victims of car crashes often have a few broken bones, as do the victims of work related incidents.  If the accidents were not the fault of the victims, they may want to use the services of the solicitors in Epping Forest to make a personal injury claim.

    The different types of breaks to the bones that can occur

    In the human body, there are 206 bones, all waiting to get broken at some point. There are lots of different types of breaks that could happen in those bones, and just some of them are:

    • Complete fracture – This is where the bone breaks completely into two pieces
    • Compound fracture – If the skin is broken as well
    • Oblique fracture – Slanted breaks
    • Spiral fracture – A winding break
    • Simple fracture – No broken skin
    • Bowing fracture – A bend in the bone rather than a break. Often happens in children because their bones are soft
    • Comminuted fracture – Crushed or shattered bones

    The treatment of broken bones

    In the medical profession, they call any breaks, cracks and crushes of bones fractures.  The way they treat your fractures depends on the severity of the break but can include:

    • Ice packs to reduce swelling
    • Painkillers
    • Slings
    • Crutches
    • Surgery to repair bones
    • Plaster cast
    • Support bandages

    The recovery time depends on how bad your fracture is and your age.  The bones of children heal a lot quicker than those of the elderly, but are more likely to break in the first place.
