Bone Infections

No matter what part of the body is affected, an infection can be very serious and hazardous to an individual’s health. A bone infection is no different. Whenever someone breaks a bone from an accident or other injury, he or she typically gets a cast to encourage the bone to heal. Unfortunately, bones can get infected during the accident or healing process and can cause serious health problems.

If you or someone you know has suffered a broken bone and bone infection because of someone else’s negligent actions, you may be eligible for financial compensation for medical bills and pain and suffering.

Consequences of Bone Infections

A large portion of bone infections occur when bone fractures pierce the skin as the bacteria can enter the body through this cut. From here, the bacteria can spread into the bloodstream, damaging the bone as well as the rest of the body. When a bacterium enters your bone, it can cause many complications, such as:

  • Redness, pain, and swelling
  • Weakened bones that eventually break
  • Fluid exiting the skin around the infected bone
  • Heart inflammation

Bone infections can be very painful and sometimes require emergency medical operations to fix the problems. Because this treatment can be costly, it is essential that you fight for the financial compensation you deserve if your accident was caused by another person.
