Treating Fractured Bones After an Accident

Treatment of a fractured bone depends largely on the severity of the injury. Some broken bones can be healed by using a cast. Other fractures require surgery and the fixation of plates, screws, and rods.

Long-term, a bone fracture can cause arthritis in the affected area, especially if the fracture involves a joint like a wrist, shoulder or ankle. The victim may require physical therapy and chiropractic care. He or she may never regain full functionality of the affected area.

  • Transverse fracture
  • Simple fracture

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
