When a bone is broken due to an accident or someone else’s negligence, the injured party has the legal right to seek compensation for damages from the injury. The severity of the injury can vary from somewhat minor to quite serious, but pain will be present regardless of the severity of the break. Additional injury to surrounding nerves, blood vessels, muscles, organs and skin are common when bones are broken. If you have suffered broken bones, an experienced personal injury lawyer can answer your questions and ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries, pain and suffering and lost wages at work.
The most serious complications arising as a result of broken bones are:
Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone or bone marrow; inflammation of the bone results due to infection. Osteomyelitis often occurs as a complication of injury or surgery. In some cases, the infection may penetrate bone tissue from the bloodstream. Patients with osteomyelitis generally experience deep pain and muscle spasms in the affected area, as well as fever.
Osteonecrosis is a disease caused by reduced blood flow to bones in the joints. With weakened blood flow, the bone starts to die and may break down. Osteonecrosis is most typically found in the shoulders, knees, hips and ankles. You may have osteonecrosis in one or more bones.
Oftentimes, 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).
