Riverside Broken Bones Attorney
Motor vehicle accidents, falls or sports injuries frequently cause broken bones. The severity of the injury is usually proportional to the force exerted on the bone when it broke. Muscles, nerves, blood vessels, organs and skin are frequently injured when bones are broken. If you suffered broken bones in Riverside, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to make sure you are adequately compensated for your injuries, losses and pain and suffering. Some consequences of bone injuries do not appear for years after the fracture.
Although broken bones are not usually considered life threatening injuries, they can be. Diabetes, blood thinners and peripheral vascular disease complicate fractured bones.
Immediately following a fracture, the immune system tries to remove bone fragments, bacteria and tissue from the wound. Immune cells and blood flow increase to the painful area until the bone begins to generate new bone cells. New bone is soft, pliable, easily damaged and lacks calcium. Calcium is deposited on the new bone which makes it stronger. It takes months or sometimes even years to restore bones.
The most serious complications a healthy adult accident victim can suffer, as a result of broken bones are:
- Pulmonary embolisms
Osteomyelitis is an extremely difficult to cure infection in a bone, usually originating from an open fracture. Osteomyelitis can become chronic showing no symptoms for months or years. Chronic osteomyelitis appears as skin infections over the bone. Infections in the fluid and tissue of the joints are usually blood-born staphylococci or streptococci.
