What is the likely recovery time?
The recovery time of the fracture depends on which bones are broken, the severity of the break and your age. The bones of children will heal quicker than that of an elderly person, although children are more likely to break a bone because they are so soft in comparison. Any break, if it was in an accident that was the fault of or caused through the negligence of someone else, can be the reason for a personal injury compensation claim.
What is the treatment?
The treatment of the broken bone(s) will depend on the severity and which bone is broken, but it could include:
- Pain killers
- Surgery to insert pins, screws or plates
- Support bandages
- Plaster cast
- Ice packs to reduce swelling
