There are several ways that a bone can break, or fracture. Serious fractures, such as those that occur in car accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents, run the risk of dangerous complications. Blood vessels and nerves near the bone can be damaged. When bones break through the skin, the risk of deep infection in the bone and the surrounding tissue becomes greater.

Harm Caused By A Bone Break
When broken bones are part of the injuries sustained in an accident of any kind, the recovery times will vary. The age and health of the person or child injured will affect the amount of time it takes for a fracture to mend. In some cases, it can take months, and physical therapy may be necessary to restore full use of the body. Medical costs can add up quickly. The injured person may be losing income from missing work, which may continue during rehabilitation. Financial compensation from the person or persons responsible for the injuries can greatly assist in your recovery.
