How bones get broken and result in innocent victims making a personal injury claim in Brymbo
Generally it is a direct blow or excessive twisting that breaks a bone, and this can occur in any type of accident, such as:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Slip, trip or fall accidents
- Accidents at school
Sometimes rather than break, the bone can crack, but whichever has happened, the medical profession refer to them all as fractures – there is no difference between the two.
Can you avoid a broken bone?
Put simply, the answer is no. If you could avoid an accident that was not your fault you could, but no one purposely puts himself or herself in this situation, so broken bones will happen.
How do you know you have a broken bone?
You need an X-ray to be certain you have broken a bone, but sometimes you can hear the snap of a clean break. Usually the fracture starts with an initial very severe pain, which soon starts to subside a little, and if it is your knee that is broken, because of the lack of muscle covering it, you can sometimes feel the break.
If you have any inkling a break is possible, you need to go to your local A & E department to get the proper medical care. There could be slivers of bone lose, which can cause a lot of extra damage and only an X-ray will show these.
Treating a broken bone
This will depend on which bone/s you have broken, but could include any of the following:
- Support bandages
- Plaster casts
- Painkillers and icepacks
- Surgery to realign bones
- Surgery to insert pins or plates
Once treated, most bones take 6 – 8 weeks to heal and leave no ill effects.
