How are bones broken?
Bones may be broken in a number of ways, and it may be helpful for you to know the difference between the simpler and more complex breaks in terms of recovery time. If you are not sure of the recovery time you can ask a doctor, but if you need to know whether you can claim for those broken bones you should ask Accident Advice Helpline to contact an injury lawyer in Sidcup for you.
- Simple fractures – these occur when a break is relatively clean, i.e. when a bone is broken in just one place. A doctor can set this type of fracture and ensure that the limb does not move while the bone is healing. These can occur in almost any case, but usually in a fall.
- Complex fractures – these types of breaks are harder to fix, because they occur in multiple places in the same bone. Someone who breaks their arm, for example, may break both the radius and the ulna, resulting in a complex fracture. These painful injuries take some time to heal.
- Multiple fractures – if you are in a car accident, you will likely break more than one bone. The more common multiple fractures include the arms, legs, hips and clavicle, or collar bone, which are all painful. If you think recovering from one broken bone is painful, try recovering from many at the same time.
The most important thing you can remember in case of a break is the number for Accident Advice Helpline, so that you have a direct link to an injury lawyer in Sidcup.
