Obtaining Appropriate Treatment For A Bone Fracture
Some bone fractures are obvious and require immediate treatment. Others are more subtle and may not show up on an initial X-ray. You may need a second X-ray or a CT scan to diagnose the fracture.
After your trip to an emergency room, it’s important to schedule follow-up care with an orthopedic doctor to ensure that you receive the treatment you need. Simply putting a sore ankle or wrist in a split is not enough to ensure that you will recover full use of the affected limb. Not following up with your doctor could result in a bone healing out of alignment. This could lead to other health problems down the road.
What If I Can’t Afford To See A Doctor?
If the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, you are entitled to seek full compensation for everything you have lost from his or her insurance company. This includes past and future medical bills, as well as damages such as lost wages, and pain and suffering.
