Broken bones injury claim in Lyneal
The human body has 206 bones — plenty of choices to have a few breaks and create a broken bone injury claim in Lyneal. The medical profession refers to all breaks, cracks and crushes of the bones as fractures, no matter how minor or severe they may be.
Accidents that can lead to a broken bone injury claim in Lyneal
Breaking a bone can happen in countless ways. If it is an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make an injury claim in Lyneal. Some of the accidental ways are:
- Car crashes;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Work-related accidents;
- Motorbike accidents;
- Falling off your bicycle or horse; and
- Playing contact sports such as boxing or rugby.
The recovery time for a broken bone
The recovery time of the fracture depends on which bones are broken, the severity of the break and your age. A child’s bones will heal quicker than those of an elderly person, although children are more likely to break bones because theirs are so soft in comparison. Any break caused due to someone else’s negligence can cause an injury claim in Lyneal.
The different types of breaks
There are numerous different types of breaks in the bones, but some of the more common ones are:
- Bowing fracture – the bone bends rather than breaks; tends to happen in children;
- Comminuted fracture – the bone is shattered or crushed;
- Complete fracture – a clean break into two pieces;
- Compound fracture – where the bone breaks the skin;
- Oblique – the break slants across the bone;
- Spiral fracture – the break winds round the bone; and
- Simple fracture – where the bone has not broken the skin.
The treatment of broken bones
The main treatments are:
- Support bandages;
- Plaster cast;
- Ice packs to reduce swelling;
