  • How To Treat Broken or Fractured Arm After Car Accidents

    August 1, 2018

    Broken or fractured arm after a car accident is not only painful, it results in a time out from work and may need lengthy treatments including surgery. It prevents you from carrying out your normal routine, it’s also uncomfortable, restricts mobility and makes it difficult to feed, groom and toilet yourself.

    Accidents are most often caused by someone else’s fault or negligence. You can file a personal injury claim for compensation against those who were responsible for your accident. Injured victims are also entitled to compensation under statutory benefits in Ontario regardless of fault.

    Symptoms include pain, swelling, and obvious deformity, inability to move the arm and/or decreased sensation. It’s important to get immediate medical attention, as there could be nerve damage, ligament or tendon tears, soft tissue injury etc. In very severe compound fractures, pieces of the broken bone may pierce through the tissues, resulting in open wounds. 

    What is the treatment of fractures?

    Treatments have to be carried out by a qualified physician or orthopedic specialist. In severe cases, where there are chances of nerve damage, severe lacerations or multiple fractures, hospitalization may be necessary. The arm must first be stabilized with a thick towel or cloth to prevent movement. An ice-bag helps to reduce swelling and pain for short periods. Split, full or partial cast will be put on by the treating doctor, and the arm must be put in a sling. Pain-management with painkillers like ibuprofen are usually prescribed.

    Broken/fractured arm treatments can be quite long-drawn-out and expensive. Personal injury lawyers help you get the compensation you deserve.
