Making a serious injuries claim in Cherwell
In the event of an accident, it can be a comfort to know that you have the legal right to make a serious injuries claim in Cherwell; especially if your injuries were or remain particularly painful.
Most people have their own definitions on what severe pain is for them. They may recall childbirth, sporting injuries, broken bones or treading on Lego. However, for many people, there is no worse pain than having a foreign object embedded in the skin. In the aftermath of a car accident, having glass fragments in cuts can be a common occurrence, and the treatment can be extremely painful and lengthy. With this in mind, it’s little wonder that many people seek out a serious injuries claim in Cherwell.
Treating a wound with glass fragments
In order for the body to totally heal, it must be free of all foreign bodies. If any glass shards were left in the body, it would not only be extremely painful for the victim but could also leave them susceptible to infection. Therefore, it is vital that all shards and fragments are removed. In order to do this, a doctor has to first manually remove all visible fragments. This can be a painstaking and often painful process using tweezers.
After this, the patient must be x-rayed to ensure that all smaller fragments which may not be visible to the naked eye but are still present have been seen. It may even be the case that a more detailed scan such as an MRI is necessary but this will be assessed on a case by case basis.
At this point, it may be that surgical procedures are necessary to remove even more shards or fragments.
