Boston Fractured & Broken Wrist Accident Attorney
Fractured or broken wrists are common injuries resulting from accidents. Broken Wrists can occur from car accidents, pedestrian accidents, cyclist accidents, crosswalk accidents, slip and fall injuries, workplace injuries, and more. Because we depend on our hands so much in daily life, an injury to the wrist can be debilitating. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons represents that the radius is the most frequently broken bone in the arm. Just behind the radius, a scaphoid fracture is next common. Each of these injuries brings their own set of complications.
The attorneys at Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers are experienced in broken bones and fracture injuries. In the event you have suffered a broken bone as a result of another’s negligence, you will want to seek medical attention immediately.
Symptoms of a Broken Wrist
Broken wrist injuries are painful. In the event you have suffered a broken wrist, the pain may be obvious and immediate. The most frequently reported symptoms of fractured or broken wrist injuries are:
- Severe pain exacerbated by gripping or squeezing
- Swelling around the injured area
- Tingling or tenderness
- Bruising or burning
- Visual deformity, such as a bend
- Stiffness while trying to move the hand or fingers
In addition to fractured or broken wrists, an injured person may experience dislocations, torn ligaments, bruising, or swelling. Treatment can be extremely costly for wrist injuries because the healing process can be complicated. The wrist will likely require immobilization by cast, brace, or other structure, a period of rest, and a period of rehabilitation. For a simple broken wrist injury, most victims require a minimum of three to six months to rehabilitate.
A wrist injury is most frequently diagnosed with an X-ray. Our lawyers generally suggest a victim of a broken wrist consult an orthopedist to facilitate proper healing and rule out the possibility of surgery. An orthopedic surgeon might suggest implementation of rods or pins to stabilize the area and promote healing, if needed. We also advises a period of physical therapy after the wrist has healed to ensure full recovery. A brief period of physical therapy can go a long way in maintaining a full range of motion and eliminating pain.
