Car accidents and falls can easily result in fractures or broken bones. These injuries sometimes heal without complication, but too often they have serious and even permanent consequences for people. More serious fractures can require surgery and rehabilitation. Some surgeries involve the use of “hardware” such as plates and screws to stabilize and strengthen the fractured bone. Serious fractures can require long term therapy and can lead to arthritis or chronic pain, and often result in psychological issues such as anxiety and depression if they affect a person’s mobility and ability to function at work or at home.
