In the event that a bone is broken due to someone else’s negligence, the injured person can make a claim to recover money to compensate for damages from the injury. The severity of the injury can vary from relatively minor to quite severe, but pain will be associated regardless of how bad the break is. Additional injury to nerves, muscles, blood vessels, organs and surrounding skin are frequent when bones are broken. If you suffered broken bones in Redlands, an experienced personal injury attorney can answer your questions and ensure that you are fairly compensated for your pain and suffering, injuries and lost time at work.
The most severe complications as a result of broken bones are:
Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone or bone marrow; inflammation in the bone due to infection. Osteomyelitis often occurs as a complication of injury or surgery. In some cases, the infection may get into bone tissue from the bloodstream. Patients with osteomyelitis typically experience deep pain and muscle spasms in the inflammation area, as well as fever.
Osteonecrosis is a disease resulting from reduced bloodflow 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.
Typically, 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).
