If you are unlucky enough to be involved in a road accident in Reigate & Banstead or in another part in the country, and it was not your fault and as a result you end up breaking your arm, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim, using an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline.
If you break your arm in a road accident in Reigate & Banstead then this can be extremely painful and upsetting. It can also make your day to day jobs very difficult to achieve and make your life very awkward. Getting dressed and undressed, or taking a shower, can be very difficult with an arm in plaster.
Most broken arms happen in accidents and if the accident that caused yours was the fault of someone else, and it happened within the last 3 years, you may be able to make a personal injury claim.
The symptoms of a broken arm
Having an X-ray at the hospital is the only way to be certain that you have a broken arm, but there are other symptoms, which point towards the injury. For example:
- There may be skin damage from the bone
- Severe and instant pain
- Swelling or tenderness around the injured area
- In a clean break you may have heard a snap
The treatment for a broken arm after a road accident in Reigate & Banstead
In the majority of cases a plaster cast and sling are sufficient for treatment for a broken arm, but in the most severe cases surgery may be needed to realign bones or insert pins to hold them together.
It depends on how severe the break is in your arm as to how long the recovery will take, and how old you are, as a child’s bones will heal much quicker than that of an elderly person, although they are more likely to break in the first place.
