Every day, many people break their arms in accidents. This can be painful and disabling while it is healing, and can make everyday tasks difficult. If the accident was not the fault of the victim, they could be entitled to compensation from the guilty party and should speak with no win no fee* Carluke lawyers to see if they qualify to make a personal injury claim.
Being certain you have a broken arm
The symptoms of a break and a bad sprain are similar, so the only way one can be certain that they have a broken arm is to have an X-ray. The symptoms they may experience are:
- Severe and instant pain;
- Swelling or tenderness around the injured area;
- In a clean break, you may have heard a snap; and
- There may be skin damage from the bone.
The treatment will depend on the severity of the break, but usually a plaster cast and sling would be used. For severe breaks, surgery may be needed to insert pins, plates or screws.
The time it takes to heal depends on how bad the injury is and your age. A child’s bones will heal a lot more quickly than those of an elderly person, but are also more likely to break in the first place.
