When most people think of fractures, they imagine a temporary inconvenience that will not result in any long-term consequences. While this may be true for some injuries, it is unfortunately not true for all fractures. Depending on the severity of the injuries and other factors such as age and health, fractures can have significant long-term impacts on injury victims.
Car accidents and falls are two of the most common causes of broken bones and fractures. If you have suffered a fracture in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated.

Fractures can affect both your mobility and comfort. Your ability to participate in regular activities such as driving, childcare, and household duties may be limited. You may also be limited in your ability to work while you recover. While these injury consequences may be troublesome in the short-term, they can be much more significant when your accident injuries result in long-term consequences.
More serious injuries may be the result of multiple and complex fractures that require surgeries and rehabilitation. Facial fractures may lead to corrective and cosmetic procedures. Fractures in the spine and hips can have severe consequences when your ability to walk and move is impaired.
Fractures can lead to additional complications in some cases. When bones do not heal properly, further medical intervention is usually necessary. Some injury victims suffer nerve damage and chronic pain related to their injuries. It is also common for people to develop traumatic arthritis as a result of fractures.
