Broken bones injury claim in Sarre
The human body has 206 bones in it — that’s a lot of bones that could break, and they frequently do. Usually they fracture in an accident of some sort, and if that accident was not the fault of the victim then they may be able to make an injury claim in Sarre for compensation. Doctors refer to all breaks and cracks in bones as fractures — it is a common misconception that there is a difference between a break and a fracture.
The victim may get their fracture in various different ways, but there is only one way to make an injury claim in Sarre
Breaks to bones can happen in lots of different accidents. Some of the more common ones are:
- Road traffic accidents;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Accidents at work; and
- Sporting injuries.
If the victim sustains a fracture in these, or any other type of accident that was not their fault, they may be able to make an injury claim in Sarre.
A broken bone can be more hassle than you think, until you realise that we can make your injury claim in Sarre
The recovery period of broken bones depends partly on the severity of the break. It also depends on the age of the victim. Children’s bones are soft — they break easily, but also mend quite quickly and usually will repair in four to six weeks. An older person’s bones are tougher, but will take longer to heal. If you break a leg and have difficulty getting around for a while, you could be off work and lose your income, as well as being in pain and needing to make an injury claim in Sarre to cover your additional expenses.
How the broken bone should be cared for
When you sustain a fracture, probably the first thing you will be aware of is pain, unless of course it is a complete fracture. This is where the bone breaks cleanly into two and it is not unusual to hear the snap as it breaks. For the pain, you should take painkillers and put on ice pack on the area that hurts to relieve the pain and any swelling.
Once you have visited the hospital, you will know what further treatment if any is needed. In most cases it would be either support bandages or plaster cast to keep the bones in place while they heal. In really severe cases though, surgery might be involved to insert pins, screws or plates to hold the break together.
