Speaking to an expert solicitor in Ashby-de-la-Zouch when you have a fractured wrist
The main reason that a fractured wrist happens is because you have an impact or twisting to your wrist. This quite often happens when people are involved in a road traffic accident or some other sort of accident that creates a fall or nasty bang to the area. The pain will be severe and you wrist will swell and become very sore and tender. The discomfort may well make you want to make a personal injury claim using the services of an expert solicitor in Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
The treatment for a fractured wrist
The treatment can differ because of things like how severe the injury is, and the age of the patient – children’s bones heal much quicker than the bones of an elderly person. Generally treatment would include:
- In more severe cases surgery may be needed to insert pins, rods, plates or screws
- An x-ray – complicated fractures may need an MRI, CT scan or bone scan
- In the case of a minor fracture – a plaster cast to hold the bone ends together
- A sling to secure the arm to the chest
