Bone Fractures Attorney
The term “fracture” refers to a broken bone. The damage to the bone can range from a hairline crack in the outer structure to a complete break whereby two or more parts of the bone no longer align correctly. A fracture which occurs during accidents can often be accompanied by a sprain, strain or dislocation due to the relative severity of the impact upon the bone.
Accidents may cause fracture injuries that prevent the victim from working and living their everyday life. when a fracture injury is suffered as a result of another person’s negligence, a Bettendorf Personal Injury Attorney can assist the victim in recovering damages from the at-fault party to the fullest extent of the law.
Indicators of a Fracture Injury
Several distinct indicators accompany a fracture injury. These include: an audible pop or snap, pain which increases with movement or pressure on the injury site, swelling and bruising, the bending of a limb where there is no joint, or a bone visible protruding through the limb.
In treating a fracture injury, a healthcare professional may set, cast, or splint a broken bone to help it heal. In the case of a severe fracture, surgery may be required. Weeks and sometimes months are required for a fracture to fully heal. Often the duration of recovery is determined by the person’s health, the severity of the injury, and whether other injuries accompany the fracture.
