Broken bones require immediate medical attention. Medical treatment is your first priority. Cracked and/or displaced bones can end up healing wrong and can then become permanently damaged. This is especially true when not tended to in a timely manner. To lower the long-term problems, seek care at a local emergency room or urgent care. A first response doctor should be able to set the bone into its proper place and apply a temporary cast to keep it in place.
A follow-up appointment with a specialist is always recommended in order to get a permanent cast and obtain further diagnostic studies to monitor proper healing. Failing to take the steps to get help can lead to more severe and permanent damage that may have otherwise been avoided. While corrective measures may still be available in the event of delayed treatment, quick attention usually leads to the highest probability of full recovery. So if you are wondering what to do, always get checked out immediately!
Common Accidents Leading To Broken Bones
Here are some common situations that could result in fractured bones:
- Slip/Trip & Fall. In this situation, the victim encounters an obstacle on the ground that either causes them to slip or trip. The unexpected fall causes the victim to land in an awkward manner. The break often happens to the part of the body that absorbs the impact. This might be the arm, legs, hip, ribs, neck or back, or a combination. Regardless the body party involved, be sure to take note of how the accident occurred and who may have created the obstacle.
- Vehicle Accidents. Severe crashes create major bodily trauma. The forces at play subject one to significant and unnatural forces, leading to broken bone injuries. Which bones are affected depend on the location of impact, the severity of impact and the types of cars, trucks or buses participating in the collision. Further investigation is always necessary to determine the at-fault driver and hold them accountable.
- Sports Injuries. When someone agrees to engage in a sport, they consent to the roughhousing that goes along with that sport. This means that when accidents happen, they have acknowledged the risk that they become hurt and voluntarily agreed to encounter it. Players of sports such as football, soccer and rugby commonly incur harm without recourse against the player who subjected them to the harm. One might say that the hurt player voluntarily subjected themselves to the harm. Nevertheless, malicious or intentional fouls could lead to the victim having rights in civil court for damages against the player committing the foul.
Significance Of Bone Breaks In Accident Cases
A broken bone is a significant injury that creates a lot of pain and suffering. It usually incapacitates the injured person from working and enjoying life for a period of time and sometimes permanently. Medical expenses add up over time. Emergency medical services are expensive. When a femur, arm, shin, foot or hand is severely damaged by a crush accident, amputation is often the only option. In addition, a permanent loss in earning capacity due to physical limitation is a real possibility. All of these possibilities are both real and significant.
