Breaking a bone is incredibly painful – both for you and for your wallet. Simply calling the ambulance and getting x-rays can cost thousands of dollars. A broken bone injury will not just heal on its own. It requires a doctor’s expertise to set the bone, put a cast or a splint on it, and monitor the injury as it heals. Follow-up visits, surgery, pain medication, and physical therapy may also be needed.

While many broken bone injuries are relatively minor and will heal without causing much interference to your life, there are some that can be difficult to treat, incredibly costly, and have major repercussions for the victim.

Serious broken bones injuries can take months to heal.  The fracture can lead to further complications like edemas or muscle spasms for instance.  There may also be long-term health effects even after the bone heals like chronic arthritis.  In addition to the physical and emotional pain the individual will be put through, the psychological stress of not being able to perform daily activities can be very draining.  In more severe cases, the individual may not be able to perform their work duties anymore. Medical costs, loss of wages, and other expenses can balloon leaving the individual in dire straits.
