If you have a broken wrist, then this could have happened because of an impact or because of your twisting your wrist. One of the more common ways for it to happen is through a car accident or another type of accident in which something falls on it. Contact Accident Advice Helpline or local solicitors in Fionnphort if this accident was not your fault.
The symptoms of a fractured wrist
Sometimes with a fractured wrist you might hear a crack as it happens, if it is a clean break. Other symptoms can include:
- Bleeding, if the fracture wrist has damaged the skin or tissue surrounding it
- Soreness and tenderness
- Severe pain
The treatment for a fractured wrist and using solicitors in Fionnphort
This depends on how severe the break is, or how old you are, as a child’s bones will heal much quicker than an elderly person’s bones. Usually the treatment would be:
- A sling to secure the arm to the chest
- An x-ray, complicated fractures may need an MRI, CT scan or bone scan
- In the case of a minor fracture – a plaster cast to hold the bone ends together
- In more severe cases – surgery may be needed to insert pins, rods, plates or screws.
Go to solicitors in Fionnphort or to the experts at Accident Advice Helpline if your fractured wrist was the fault of someone else.
