    Port Talbot road traffic accidents


    People all over the country are sustaining various injuries from road traffic accidents. Sadly accidents happen every day. The list of different types of injuries sustained is endless. One of those injuries sustained in Port Talbot road traffic accidents and accidents all over the U.K are injuries involving our arms.

    If you suffer from an arm injury then suddenly you could find your life is turned upside down. Simple daily routine tasks become impossible, simple things like using the toilet and combing your hair need assistance. Needing intimate care can make a person feel very low and depressed.

    The different types of arm injury you could sustain in Port Talbot road traffic accidents are:

    • Fractures- a fracture is when you crack or break a bone in your arm. A fracture happens when a physical force stronger than the arm is exerted onto the bone. Most fractures can be realigned and set into a cast to heal. If you suffer from an open fracture, this is when the skin is broken and the bone is visible, then you will also need antibiotics to avoid infection.
    • Sprains – This occurs when you tear or stretch the arms ligaments. Your ligaments are the tissue that connects a bone to the joint. If you damage this then you will experience swelling and pain. The treatment for a sprain is rest, pain relief and wearing a bandage to support the area.
    • Dislocations – In your arm this type of injury will usually occur in the elbow. A dislocation is when your bones are forced out of position, the area will be very swollen, often obviously out of shape and extremely painful. The treatment for a dislocation will vary depending on the severity of the dislocation. It can include re positioning the bone, pain relief and sometimes a splint or sling.

    If you are suffering from an arm injury or any other injury caused in a road traffic accident that was not your fault then you could be able to make a personal injury claim. An arm injury can lead to a lot of extra expenses such as personal care, household maintenance and loss of earning from time off work. By making a claim you could get reimbursement for all these costs.
