If you have broken your arm, it will be painful, bruised and swollen. The first thing you must do is go to your local Accident and Emergency Department. There, your arm will be X-rayed and placed into a cast. Perhaps you may require pain relief and antibiotics. Depending on the particular features of your fracture, you may require regular review in a fracture clinic.
Sometimes a broken arm will need surgery.
Whether or not you will need surgery depends on many factors including: your age, location of the fracture, displacement of the broken bones and whether previous attempts at realignments were successful. In addition, if you have a condition like osteoporosis which affects the condition of your bones, this may well have an influence on the extent of the fracture and how best to treat it.
Following removal of the cast you may require support from a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist to help you regain as much function as possible and to strengthen your arm.
Once you have had the appropriate treatment you may now be wondering: How much will I get for a broken arm?
Accident Advice Helpline has been working hard since 2000 to get victims of accidents the compensation they deserve. So, if your arm was broken in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
How much will I get for a broken arm?
