Bone Injuries & Fractures – What You Need to Know
It is a common misconception that a broken bone is a minor injury, however, this is not always the case. In medical terms, a broken bone can be any type of cracked, broken or crushed bone, regardless of its severity. Any bone in the body can be broken but some of the more common broken bones include legs, wrists, arms, fingers, toes or a broken nose. A more serious break could be a fractured skull, which could lead to brain injuries, or a broken back which can cause spinal cord injury.
If you have been in an accident, which was caused by a negligent person, and have broken a bone you may have the right to make a personal injury claim in Fort Worth. Some bone breaks can be severe, and call for surgical operations to gain access to the fractured area. In some cases you may need pins, plates and/or wires to be inserted to stabilize the fracture to allow for natural union and healing. Further surgery may be needed later on to remove the inserted screws or plates. This can lead to a significant amount of pain, discomfort and/or ugly scarring.
Surgery and Complications from Serious Injuries
Sometimes, bones may be so badly broken that surgery is needed to smooth the jagged ends of the bones to allow the fractured ends to mend. This is a complicated procedure and the risk of infection is high. In more severe cases, amputation may be needed, which you can file for amputation damages. If a surgery involves a joint such as: wrists, knees, elbows, hips, thumbs or fingers, you may be at risk of arthritis in later years.
Bone breaks can be serious and cases in which a negligent person or injury caused the break should be treated just as seriously. Finding an experienced attorney who has worked in personal injury cases involving broken bones is a good first step in recovering the compensation that you need and deserve.
