If you or a loved one has sustained broken bones in a Pennsylvania trip and fall accident, you should explore your legal options with a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer. Broken bones may require surgery, casting or physical therapy. You may be forced to take extensive time off from work, and, therefore, be eligible to recover damages for lost earnings and medical expenses.

Common Symptoms of Broken Bones

The symptoms of a broken bone may include any of the following:
 

  • a deformed limb or joint;
  • pain caused by gentle pressure or any kind of movement;
  • bone protruding  through the skin -- a compound fracture;
  • bluish discoloration or numbness in the affected area; and
  • an abnormally positioned leg or arm. 


If you have broken a hip bone you most likely will have to undergo surgery and rehabilitation. Treatment for all other broken bones will depend on the severity of the injury and other factors, including: 

  • the affected body part;
  • the healing potential of the broken bone;
  • your overall health; and
  • your age. 


Whether your injury requires surgery or extensive physical therapy, you will need to follow your doctor's orders and keep all of your medical appointments to help your Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer prepare a strong case on your behalf.
