When you were a kid, you may have broken a bone while playing with friends and recovered relatively painlessly. However, breaking a bone as an adult is a much more serious injury that can have long-term consequences, especially if you’re in your senior years. Read on to learn more about fracture injuries. If you’ve received a broken bone in an accident, find out if you have a legal claim for the cost of your injuries by speaking with an experienced New York personal injury attorney.
Types of fractures
Recovering from a broken bone
It might seem like a simple process to heal from a broken bone. You wear a cast for a certain length of time, remove the cast, and you’re healed, right? Unfortunately, the process doesn’t always go this smoothly. Often, fracture victims may require rehabilitation to restore muscle tone to areas that were immobilized for extended periods. Where a fracture continued into a victim’s joint, they may suffer the effects of osteoarthritis in that joint years later. If a fracture required doctors to immobilize a joint, such as the elbow or shoulder, the victim may experience painful stiffness or a reduced range of motion in that joint. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine how extensive you can anticipate your future expenses to be based on your injury.
