Victim of Broken Bones and Scarring?
It is often of no great comfort to remember that human bodies, though beautiful, can be quite as fragile like parchment. If care is not exercised, the slightest fault could render someone immobile all the rest of their days. That is why it is of the utmost importance for people to exercise caution in order to not only protect themselves but also to protect others. Everyone has the power and potential to cause harm to someone else and in that given power, there is, as a great man once said, great responsibility.
Sometimes, this responsibility is not taken seriously – and it is cause for serious injury that one could possibly never recover from. According to the website of Spiros Law, some traumatic injuries can lead to broken bones and lacerations.
Bone fractures, though can often heal and leave no evidence eventually, can be potentially harmful. There are some instances wherein the bone can no longer grow in much the same way ever again, leaving the victim disfigured for the rest of his life. Imagine a basketball player who, after sustaining such an injury, can no longer jump due to a busted kneecap. That’s an entire career down the drain due to one injury!
Even if the bone were to mend and heal, there is still the issue of possible psychological trauma and backlash sustained due to how the injury was brought about, as well as the financial compensation for any medical bills and lost wages need to be accounted for. Sometimes, such as is the case of compound fractures (fractures that break open skin), bones can even become infected due to the open wound. It can be more than just inconvenient to have a broken bone as it has the potential to be hazardous to the point of being deadly.
Whether the injury was caused by negligence or with malicious intent, the offending party needs to be held accountable for the damage sustained. It is well within the victim’s right to demand compensation and justice.
If you or a loved one have sustained injury that have caused broken bones and/or scarring, it is advisable for you to contact legal support and assistance immediately.
