Arm Fractures After a Car Wreck
Having an arm fractured is a very common injury after a car accident or other type of personal injury. An injury to the arm may involve the three bones inside your arm – the ulna, radius and humerus. For some extreme types of injuries surgery will be needed to stabilize the injury and for the best chance of full recovery. Surgery may be needed to fully address the problem and stop future issues that might arise after such an accident. In the case of surgery, we will either get money set aside for any future medical costs or we should hold off on the settlement until the necessary surgery or surgeries has taken place. In children, fractures can disturb the growth plate and lead to numerous other issues down the road. Fractures that extend right into a joint could later result in joint disease or other injuries. A good personal injury lawyer will identify these issues and make sure they are accounted for in the settlement procedures or fully addressed at trial. A fracture diagnosis can be confirmed by an x-ray examinations. After a car accident this is usually done at the emergency room or hospital. Although emergency rooms do not really or are not really set up to treat all injuries, they want to make sure you go are healthy enough to go to a doctor at another time. Remember, this is the emergency room. But, one thing the emergency room will check for after a car accident is for broken bones and fractures.
