Some accidents can cause broken bones. If you’ve broken a bone because someone else caused an accident, speak to Accident Advice Helpline about a fall injury compensation claim in Three Rivers.
If your body receives enough of an impact, you could break a bone. Trips and falls can cause a broken hand or wrist if you land awkwardly, or even a broken arm. Car accidents, too, can cause broken bones.
Treatment for broken bones
- You will need to be treated at hospital. They will first x-ray you to see the extent of the break.
- Some bones can then be set in a cast, while others may require an operation.
- You will usually be allowed home, but you will have to wear a cast for a few weeks until the bones have healed.
- You will probably be prescribed painkillers while you need them.
- When the cast is removed, you may need physiotherapy or exercises to make sure the muscles surrounding the bone can support it.
