Connecticut Broken Wrist Lawyers

Statistics show that broken wrist injuries are the most common types of fractures in the United States for individuals under the age of 74, while accounting for one in six fractures treated in the emergency room.

Broken wrists are most common in athletes; however slip and fall accidents and auto accidents also contribute to a large percentage of these types of injuries. As the wrist is an extremely complex part of the body, they often require immediate medical attention when any damage is done. This will ensure the bone is properly healed and regains its regular strength and function to carry out normal activities of daily living.

At Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, our personal injury attorneys believe that when an individual has been injured as a result of another person’s negligent actions, that person may be eligible to receive compensation for their losses and damages including; pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage, and loss of wages.

Composition of the Wrist

As we know, the wrist is able to perform a variety of different tasks; thus there are many complexities of the wrist. The wrist essentially is a joint which connects the hand and the arm and allows the hand to bend, rotate and straighten to perform normal daily functions.

A few major parts of the wrist include:

Carpals

There are eight carpal bones in the wrist consisting of the scaphoid, lunate, triquetral, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate, and hamate. Additionally, the scaphoid is the most commonly injured bone in the wrist.

Metacarpals

The metacarpal bones form the intermediate part of the hand and extend from the carpals to the knuckles.

Radius and Ulna

The radius and ulna are long bones that make up the forearm and connect with the carpals. The radius is a common location for wrist fractures, as it runs along the medial side of the arm.

All of these bones are surrounded by muscles and ligaments to provide support and function to the wrist and hand. Understanding the composition of the hand will better help you understand the types of damages that may occur. These damage my hinder daily living activities preventing individual from performing even the simplest tasks.

Common Causes of a Broken Wrist

In most cases, fractures occur to men under the age of 45, and are the second most frequent injury to women over the age of 45, due to the loss of bone density during menopause. Women also have a higher rate of osteoporosis, which also deals with the weakening and decalcification of bones. As a result, several different types of accidents that can cause bone fractures in the wrists.

Some common causes of broken wrist injuries include:

Many broken wrists occur when an individual tires to catch themselves while falling. Although it is a natural reaction to catch one’s self, this is a known cause for many wrist injuries.

Common Symptoms of a Broken Wrist

Depending on the type of accident, a wrist injury may or may not be apparent. In some instances, minor fractures occur where the individual may not recognize that a bone has actually been broken. These injuries can be determined by visiting a doctor and having an x-ray taken of the wrist.

Symptoms of a broken wrist include:

  • Bruising
  • Deformity
  • Limited mobility
  • Numbness
  • Pain when squeezing or gripping
  • Tenderness
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling

If you believe you have broken your wrist for any reason, it is advised to seek medical attention immediately to avoid further complications.
