Bone fractures due to motor vehicle accidents, falls or sports injuries can be quite significant and often require medical attention for weeks, sometimes months or years. The severity of the injury depends on the force exerted on the bone when it was broken. Additional injuries to muscles, nerves, blood vessels, organs and skin can prolong the healing process. If you suffered broken bones in Long Beach, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to make sure you are adequately compensated for your bodily injuries, pain and suffering, as well as lost wages.
The most serious complications a healthy adult accident victim can suffer, as a result of broken bones are:
Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone, a rare but serious condition. Bones can become infected in a number of ways: Infection in one part of the body may spread through the bloodstream into the bone, or an open fracture or surgery may expose the bone to infection.
Osteonecrosis is a disease caused by reduced blood flow to bones in the joints. With too little blood, the bone starts 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 times, 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).
