Peterborough accident injury


When someone breaks their arm or wrist, it is commonly done through falling while their arm is outstretched. Usually, it can take between six to eight weeks to heal in adults. If you are experiencing a great deal of pain after a trip, slip or fall, or road traffic accident, or any other accidents for that matter, you should consider making a Peterborough accident injury claim through Accident Advice Helpline.

Do you need to make a Peterborough accident injury claim for compensation?

If the accident you were involved in has caused a clean break of the wrist, there is a high chance that you may have heard a snap, crack or grinding noise during the accident. The bone can break straight across, diagonally, or in a spiral pattern depending on the accidents and how you land on your arm. In severe cases, the bone may break into many pieces, stick out at an angle or poke through the skin.

It’s important that you go straight to the hospital if you feel that you have broken your arm. This means that you will have sought medical attention which will help you in your injury claim for compensation as our lawyers like to gather as much evidence as possible.

Some common injuries

The following are some common medical statements used when doctors treating broken arms and wrists. It may also be beneficial to know these in case they are required details in your Peterborough accident injury claim:

  • Humerus – bone between the shoulder and elbow
  • Radius – bone between the elbow and wrist (thumb side of the arm)
  • Ulna – bone between the elbow and wrist (little-finger side of the arm)
  • Simple or closed fracture – an easily treated break with little damage to the surrounding tissue
  • Compound or open fracture – a complicated break with damage to the surrounding skin
  • Comminuted fracture – the bone has broken into several pieces
  • hairline fracture – a minor crack to the bone, which only shows up faintly on X-ray
