Atlanta Broken Bone Attorneys
Any time an accident occurs, victims risk suffering serious injury, such as brain damage or spinal damage. Additionally, millions of Americans suffer broken bones in accidents every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While broken bones are often believed to be relatively minor injuries, several complications may arise that can have a serious impact on a victim’s life and that can require expensive and lengthy medical treatment. If an accident is caused because another person was negligent, that person should be held responsible from any resulting injuries, including broken bones.
Broken bones can result from many different types of accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Sports accidents
- And more
Can Broken Bones Cause Lifelong Health Issues?
Though many broken bones heal without incident and require only a short period of immobilization, some victims suffer serious complications.
These complications may include the following:
- Growth disturbance in children, leading to later deformity of a limb
- Crooked healing of the bone, often requiring a re-break and possible surgery
- Infections in the bone or bone marrow, requiring antibiotics and careful supervision
- Death of a bone from loss of blood supply due to the break
Some of the above complications often can require hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, long-term medications, or even bone replacement. These treatments may be ongoing for a long period of time and prevent a victim from returning to their usual life and work.
