Your trip and fall injury claim in Carew
Are you nursing some broken bones from a nasty fall? Did you trip and fall due to someone else’s negligence? If so you might be looking for a lawyer to take your injury claim in Carew.
Falls often occur when we don’t look where we’re going or when we’re distracted by something. It can be a classic comedy moment in a film but in reality it’s at least embarrassing and at worst life threatening.
If you’ve fallen from a height then you may have been taken to hospital with serious injuries. You might be facing a long period of rehabilitation. Even minor trips and falls at ground level can have unpleasant consequences.
Unless you’re a trained stuntman, when you take a fall you will automatically put out your hands to save yourself. This often results in a scaphoid fracture. The scaphoid is a small bone in your wrist underneath your thumb and can be a difficult injury to diagnose.
Initially your hand will swell and be quite painful but an x-ray may not show any sign of a fracture. The standard treatment is to immobilise the hand in a cast or splint for a couple of weeks after which time it might be easier to spot the damage. An mri scan is often required to accurately diagnose what’s happened.
If you have indeed fractured this little bone in your hand you will spend more time than you think in a cast. It can take up to 6 months to heal and this can seriously affect your normal life. We rely on our hands for nearly everything and to be out of action in this way can be very frustrating.
