    Is someone else’s negligence responsible for your broken wrist? Do you need help from our personal injury lawyer in Caithness?

    Experiencing a broken wrist at the best of times can be a very distressing and frustrating time. However, when someone else is negligent for the injury, you may be left feeling even worse and feel that you are entitled to be compensated for your experience.

    First steps in dealing with a broken wrist

    Try not to rush things; the pain that you are experiencing will be a good indicator that you shouldn’t be doing certain things with your wrist. If you are unsure of certain activities, make sure that you clarify it with your doctor first, or if you can’t get an appointment straight away, look up information on the web. Always remember to be patient. Coping with a wrist injury can be very hard, especially if you are an active person, but you can do more damage by rushing things as the wrist may not recover properly. In very severe cases, recovery from a broken wrist can take up to two years.

    Common medical statements relating to broken wrists

    The following are some common medical statements used when doctors treat your broken wrist. It may also be beneficial to know these in case any of the following are required in your broken wrist claim with a personal injury lawyer in Caithness:

    • The humerus is the bone found between the shoulder and elbow
    • The radius is the bone found between the elbow and wrist
    • The ulna bone is between the elbow and wrist
    • A simple or closed fracture is  an easily treated break which causes little damage to the surrounding tissue
    • A compound or open fracture can be a very complicated break with damage to the surrounding skin
    • A hairline fracture is a very common accident. This involves a minor crack to the bone, which only shows up faintly on X-ray.

    Nerve damage is quite likely as well, and some wrist fractures result in carpel tunnel syndrome. If you have any concerns, remember to raise them with your doctor.
