Embleton is the name of three locations in the UK. There is a village of this name in Northumberland, and another small village in Cumbria also takes that name. Meanwhile, County Durham also has a small hamlet by this name, so you can see they are all very small places in terms of size and population. This would also mean anyone wanting to find a lawyer in Embleton would very likely need to go further afield to seek help, no matter what specialism they needed to benefit from.
For example, if you have injured yourself and you want to find out whether there is any chance of making a compensation claim, a personal injury lawyer would be the person to talk to. This refers to someone who makes personal injury claims on behalf of those who have been injured by someone else through negligence. Here, we’ll look at broken wrist injuries and how they might happen to you.
Broken wrist injuries
There are all kinds of ways you could break your wrist. This is a painful injury that normally means you’ve broken one of the bones in your forearm, close to where they end at your wrist. Sometimes, it’s possible to merely bruise the area or wrench it, so an x-ray will likely be required very quickly to ascertain whether there is a break. This will also determine the treatment to be given.
A fall can lead to this sort of injury, particularly if you either fall onto an outstretched hand, or you fall awkwardly and cannot break your fall quite enough to prevent the injury from occurring. Bruising, swelling, and a severe amount of pain will indicate the likelihood of a broken wrist. You might also notice your wrist looks odd compared to its usual appearance, depending on how badly the bones have broken. Some people even hear a distinct snap when the injury happens, but this can depend on the severity of the break and how noisy it is around you, too. Always get immediate medical help to see whether there has been a break, and to see what treatment you need.
