If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a broken arm because of an accident that was not your fault, then you may wish to make a personal injury compensation claim using solicitors in Kerridge to help you. A broken arm can stop you doing everyday normal things throughout your life. It can also be very painful and upsetting.
If your accident happened within the last three years and you needed medical attention for your injuries, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim, as UK law says the guilty party has to give you recompense for the suffering they have caused. Our solicitors in Kerridge can help you with this.
How you will know if your arm is broken
If you suspect you have a broken arm, then you should go straight to the hospital so they can X-ray it to make sure. There are other symptoms you could be suffering, including:
- In a clean break, you may have heard a snap;
- There may be skin damage from the bone;
- Severe and instant pain; and
- Swelling or tenderness around the injured area.
How to treat your broken arm
The treatment for your broken arm will depend on how bad the break is, although in general a plaster cast and sling would be the treatment used. If your fracture is severe, then you may need surgery so that pins, plates or screws can be inserted to hold the bones in place while they heal.
Your healing time will also depend on how bad your fracture is. Also, your age will be a factor, as a child’s bones will heal much quicker than those of an old person.
