There is a very old song that tells how each bone in the skeleton is connected to the next. It is these connections that can cause unexpected problems if you experience a broken bone. Breaking a metatarsal in your foot for example, can affect your heel until you have recovered. Breaking your thighbone can affect your hip joint, and so it goes on throughout your body.
Bones are usually broken in accidents rather than in any other way. If someone else caused an accident in which you sustained broken bones, you could be entitled to make a Sutton accident claim against them.
The other affects of broken bones
Our skeleton cannot stand on its own, it needs what are known as our soft tissues to support it and give it the ability to move. These tissues are made up of muscles, ligaments and tendons. A broken bone can easily affect these as well, and cause even more pain and suffering.
If your injury is just a broken bone and nothing else has been affected, you should expect it to heal in 6 – 8 weeks. But if your soft tissues or one of your joints is damaged by the break, your injury could take much longer to recover from.
Why making a Sutton accident claim helps
If someone else was to blame for the accident in which you sustained a broken bone, you have a legal right to claim compensation. This is not just for the pain and suffering, or even the anxiety and stress an accident can cause. The way your life is affected has to be taken into consideration, as do any extra expenses, or loss of income, that had been created by the accident that was not your own fault.
The closer you look at making a Sutton accident claim, the more you realise how many elements are involved in getting it right.
