A broken bone can take anywhere from a few weeks to months to heal. The injury itself can be very painful, as can the healing process.
Healing and Treatment for Broken Bones
If there is more than one fracture the pain increases exponentially. Some breaks, such as a compound or shattered fracture, require extensive surgery to realign or to implant metal rods and pins to reinforce and hold the bone in place.
If you have broken a leg or an arm, or even a toe or a finger, will you be able to go back to work? If you have a physically demanding job, a broken leg can mean that you will be out of work for weeks or months. If your job requires you to type most of the day, a broken wrist might keep you away from work for quite a while. In the meantime, you will still have to pay bills and buy groceries. Where will that money come from?

Compensation for Medical Bills in NJ
Medical bills can reach unmanageable sums very quickly, especially if a bone fracture requires surgery or other complications arise. Bone fractures often require multiple visits for treatment. Different types of casts may be used, pins need to be implanted, and regular check-ins to make sure the bones are healing properly. There may also be a period of physical therapy to treat atrophied muscles after the bone heals. Even if you have health insurance, you may face substantial out-of-pocket expenses.
Typically, the person or entity that caused the break can be held liable for the damages in a number of ways. First there are the financial and physical expenses that accompany such accidents, such as property damage, hospital expenses and insurance bills. Beyond that there are non-economic damages that cover those items that can be harder to calculate - such as - pain and suffering, loss of wages and any potential therapy.
