Contact a Plantation injury attorney from our firm if you have been involved in an accident that has left you suffering with broken bones.
Causes and Symptoms of Broken Bones
A bone can typically be broken when it is faced with a significant amount of pressure. If the force on it is enough then the bone can split or break completely in half. The break may occur from a taking a fall, from a blow, in a car accident or through repetitive stress such as what a runner can face. Symptoms can vary and may change over time. It may include severe pain, bleeding, swelling, reduced functioning of limb, a numb feeling, blurry vision and more. Even being proactive does not mean that you can avoid the possibility of an accident altogether. Treatment for these injuries can vary and a medical professional should assess it to determine the right plan of action. Sometimes a dislocated bone can appear as though it is a broken bone but medical attention will be needed in both situations.
A healthcare worker may need to reset the bone and put on a cast to allow for the bone to heal in the correct position. Some injuries can lead to the need for further medical attention. If an infection is suffered then this will only increase the time length for recovery and can lead to additional complications. While a broken bone should be looked at by a professional, some of them will need more immediate attention. It should be considered an emergency when there is substantial bleeding, the bone is sticking out of the skin, bones around the hip region are believed to be broken, the broken bone is in the head, neck or back or the area around the injury appears to not be getting any blood circulation.
