When the ligaments holding bones in place around joints are damaged, the bone can move out of alignment. The injury is called a dislocation, and it can be incredibly painful, particularly for larger joints like hips, knees and shoulders. Any joint can be dislocated, and it is not uncommon for a dislocation to happen at the same time as a fracture.
What is a Dislocation Injury?
Any joint has the potential to be dislocated. The bone can move out of place as the result of an awkward landing after a fall, or from being wrenched too hard in a wrong direction. Once a joint has been dislocated, it has a higher chance of it doing so in future, with children and seniors being particularly susceptible.
A dislocation injury may not be immediately apparent. Symptoms include:
- Bruising and swelling
- An inability to move that limb or bone
- Loss of feeling, or a tingling sensation
Dislocated joints may need an x-ray or MRI to be diagnosed, so it is best to obtain medical treatment as quickly as possible after being injured. In less severe instances the bone may naturally fall back into place. More often, it will need some manipulation, with extremely serious cases requiring surgery. After being put back into place, the limb or joint is immobilised with a cast or splint for several weeks in a similar manner to the way a fracture is set.
Claiming Compensation for a Dislocated Bone
Your personal injury lawyer will need to meet two criteria for your application for compensation to be successful. The first is that you were injured. This is generally proven from your medical notes, which is another reason it is important you see a doctor as soon as possible. The second criteria is that your injury occurred due to another person’s mistake or negligence. For example, if you dislocated your knee slipping over on a wet floor in a shopping centre, or if you injured yourself at work doing something for which you had not received the correct training.
Get in touch with The Compensation Experts even if you are not sure whether you have grounds to make a claim.
