Any bone in the body can be broken and the severity can vary dramatically; it may be a case of allowing the bone to heal naturally or several complicated operations may be necessary. Fractures and broken bones can occur in a number of ways, such as a slip or fall, being struck by a falling object or an attack. This can happen in a number of places, such as work, home or a public place.
There are many far reaching effects of fracturing/breaking a bone, this can include:
- Further surgery
- Insertion of metal pins or plates
- Damage to the surrounding tissue/muscle
Where the injury resulted from medical negligence we will provide supportive advice and seek compensation for you.
