Bone fractures and breaks happen when an impact against a bone is too strong for the bone to tolerate, and it breaks. Negligent driving resulting in a traffic accident, poorly maintained premises or lack of safety procedures on a work site are among the most common causes of broken bones. Muscles, nerves, blood vessels, organs and skin are often also injured when bones are broken. If you suffered broken bones in Lancaster, you will have many questions and will need the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney to make sure you are adequately compensated for your pain and suffering, injuries and even lost wages. Some consequences of bone injuries do not appear for years after the fracture.
The most serious complications of broken bones are:
Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone. It can affect any bone in the body. But it most often involves the long bones (leg and arm), the spine, and foot bones. You can have a bacterial infection (usually from Staphylococcus) or, more rarely, a fungal infection.
Osteonecrosis is a disease caused by reduced bloodflow to bones in the joints. With too little blood, the bone begins to die and may break down. Osteonecrosis is most often found in the hips, knees, shoulders, and ankles. You may have osteonecrosis in one or more bones.
Most often, a pulmonary embolism is caused by blood clots that travel from the legs or, rarely, other parts of the body (deep vein thrombosis, or DVT).
