Tell-tale signs and symptoms of a broken bone

Posted on April 7, 2015 9:08 am under Premises Liability

Fractures can result from any traumatic event – contact during sports, domestic violence, and even work-related injuries. In some instances, fractures can result from trips and falls caused by slippery floors and unsafe stairs.

Pain and tenderness in the affected area, especially when pressure is applied, are considered the primary symptoms of a broken bone. The area over the bone may also be swollen and bruised, and the affected body part could look deformed. The fractured body part may also lose its function. Wounds are also present in open fractures.

Unfortunately, some fracture-causing accidents could have been prevented if property owners had not been negligent in ensuring that their premises were safe from any hazard.
