Do you need to contact Leven accident claim solicitors after suffering a broken arm?
Although any type of broken bone in the arm or shoulder area can be painful, some injuries are worse than others. If, for example, you suffer a clean break to one bone, it may be extremely painful but it may be relatively easy for medical professionals to treat. Although it could take weeks or months until you’re fully recovered, these types of breaks often heal fairly well so your treatment plan could be straightforward.
However, if the bone is broken in more than one place, it may be more complicated for medics to treat. Whilst a plaster cast may help to keep the area still and allow the bones to heal, you may require more intensive treatment in order to ensure that the bones re-set in the correct way.
If you were to suffer from a shattered bone or joint in the arm, you may need a considerable amount of treatment. In some cases, surgeons are able to place metal pins near the bone to ensure that it heals properly but in other cases, the joint or bone needs to be reconstructed completely. This severity of the injury will obviously impact upon what type of treatment you require and how long it will take for you to recover.
Regardless of what type of break or fracture you’ve sustained, it’s likely that your arm will be in a sling or a plaster cast for some time. During the recovery process you may, therefore, be unable to drive or to play any kind of sports. Whilst this can be inconvenient, following the advice of your doctors can help to ensure that you recover as fully as possible and that you don’t suffer any subsequent injuries.
If you’ve suffered this type of injury and it wasn’t your fault, you may be eager to contact Leven accident claim solicitors so that you can make a claim for compensation.
