RI Accident | The Additional Effects of Broken Bones

(This is an informative Personal Injury Law Article  By David S Caldwell. This article is approved by Rhode Island Personal Injury Attorney, David Slepkow)

When individuals suffer broken bones, most people think that they will have to have their limbs set in casts and wait for six weeks for the bone to heal. In reality, this is not always the case. Broken bones can have much more profound and significant impacts on those who suffer them.

Broken bones refer to any bone that is fractured or not completely intact. While many fractures are not severe and do not require treatment beyond a cast, some are more severe and may require surgery. Unfortunately, individuals still may suffer additional effects stemming from the fracture.

When an individual breaks a bone, he or she may also:

  • Have a crushed joint
  • Suffer ligament or tendon damage
  • Contract a bone infection
  • Experience nerve damage
  • Lose use of the affected body part

In even more serious cases, individuals may require amputations. These cases can seriously disfigure an individual as well as limit his or her available range of motion. As such, the individual may not be able to return to his or her job, and the individual may have to rely on friends and family members for care and support.

In many cases, individuals suffer broken bones in accidents that result from another person’s negligence. Individuals who suffer injuries in this manner may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries.

These individuals will need to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to pursue compensation. This requires individuals to hire experienced personal injury lawyers to assist them with their legal cases.

If you suffered serious side effects from a broken bone that you sustained in an accident that another person caused, discuss your legal rights and options with the Springfield injury attorneys of Strong-Garner-Bauer, P.C.
