The High Cost of Broken Bones
Suffering a bone fracture goes well beyond the temporary pain at the time of a break. The recovery process itself can be a major burden.
Broken bones come in many different forms, each with their own effects and routes to recovery. The various types of bone fractures include:
- Complete Fracture – Bone fragments separate completely.
- Incomplete Fracture – The bone is cracked but partially joined together.
- Impacted Fracture – The broken ends of the bone are driven into each other.
- Spiral Fracture – Part of the bone has been twisted during the break.
- Avulsion Fracture – A fragment of the bone is broken off and separated from the rest.
- Greenstick Fracture – The bone bends, but doesn’t break. Most common in children whose bones are still soft.
Any of these can be either a simple fracture, where the broken bones stay within the body, or a compound fracture, where broken bone breaks through the skin. Depending on the location of the break, many different injuries can arise and lead to a difficult recovery.
Broken bones need to be treated as soon as possible in order to heal as completely and normally as possible. By setting the bones and applying the right treatment, such as casts and slings, broken bones can be restored to their previous state.
However, there can be many complications even in the case of common bone fractures. And when it comes to more severe incidents, infections and various threats to your health can arise and require much more extensive treatment. Broken bones may puncture organs and harm soft tissues in serious incidents and compound fractures that break through the skin can easily lead to severe infections.
How Can You Recover?
Coping with broken bones can require extensive medical treatment, including hospital stays. While it may not seem like much, even a single night in the hospital can cost you thousands of dollars. Depending on what your injuries are, you may require rehabilitation in order to completely regain your strength and range of motion in the injured areas. Combine this with an inability to work while healing and you may find yourself in serious debt in a matter of days.
However, if you suffered broken bones in an accident caused by another person or group’s reckless actions, these financial losses can be sought in a legal case. By proving that a negligent party or parties caused your accident and injuries you are eligible to receive fair and full compensation that covers all related losses, both in the present and the future.
