Both serious and minor incidents can result in broken bones. Simple trips or falls can cause you to break a bone if you fall awkwardly. You may be able to claim compensation for an accident which results in a broken bone. Straightforward breaks where the bone does not break the skin are known as simple or closed breaks. The more serious fractures where the bone breaks through the skin are known as compound or open fractures, which can leave the bone open to infection. Serious fractures and symptoms
Serious fractures can also lead to osteoarthritis, which is the most common type of arthiritis in the UK.
Symptoms of a fracture normally include:
A grating or grinding sound or sensation in the bone. The fractured bone will need to be stabilised and kept still for several weeks. Depending on the severity of the break, you may need physiotherapy to build up the strength and mobility in the limb.
