The pain associated with breaking one bone in one place can be excruciating. Imagine then the agony associated with suffering a multiple fracture as a result of an accident that wasn’t even your fault. Even the definition of a multiple fracture as being a fracture break that extends several fracture lines in one bone or the fracture of several bones at one time or from the same injury, can induce an involuntary wince. It sounds extraordinarily painful and it is. Such injuries can, if the initial injury and its aftermath weren’t enough to cope with, give rise to arthritis or other joint disorders.
Depending on the location and severity of the fractures, your life will be disrupted to lesser or greater extent. At best, part of your body will be immobilised for a few weeks in such a way as to affect your overall mobility or ability to perform everyday tasks such as dressing yourself or driving. This could affect your ability to perform your job or carry out services for your dependants such as DIY or something as taken for granted as shopping and cooking. If you are unable to perform your job, you will have to take time off work, which, especially if you are self- employed, could dramatically affect your income. At the other end of the severity scale your fractures could be immediately life threatening and even after the most effective and on-going medical treatment available, result in severe life-long disability. The effects of such appallingly severe injuries make the inconveniences noted above for more ‘minor’ multiple fractures seem like a stroll in the park – and to top it all your multiple fracture accident wasn’t your fault.
