How injury solicitors in Dalry can help if you have broken bones
There is a common misconception that there is a difference between a broken bone and a fracture. In reality it does not matter what damage has been done to your bones, the medical profession always refer to it as a fracture. Some of the more common ones are:
- Bowing fracture – this is where the bone bends rather than breaks
- Complete fracture – a clean break into two
- Compound fracture – the bone breaks through the skin
- Greenstick fracture – the bone only breaks on one side
- Spiral fracture – a break winding round the bone
- Comminuted fracture – the bone is broken into pieces or shattered
- Simple fracture – where there is no break in the skin
Bowing fractures and greenstick fractures tend to be common in children because of the softness of their bones. Any fracture, if it has been caused in the last three years through the fault of someone else may mean you can use injury solicitors in Dalry to make a personal injury compensation claim.
How they happen
Broken bones can happen in any sort of accident but most occur in situations like road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls or accidents at work. It does not matter how it happens; all accidents fall within the scope of personal injury claims.
How they are treated
The treatment depends on which bones are broken and the severity of the break, but could include:
- Plaster cast
- Sling to support the arm
- Support bandages
- Surgery to insert pins, screws or plates
- Ice packs
If the bones that are broken are in the skull or chest the consequences can be dire. They protect internal organs, which can also be damaged in the accident. Bones broken in your back could take away your ability to walk. These sorts of breaks would have life changing effects for the victim and those close to them.
