According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, bone fractures can take several weeks or months to heal. Depending on the nature of the injury, medical treatment can include surgery, casts and traction. Even after the bone heals, the recovery process can involve extensive physical rehabilitation. A fracture that fails to heal properly can lead to chronic pain and permanently reduced mobility.

The Severity of Bone Fractures
Due to the uncertainty of prognosis for some bone fractures, it is important to consult with a lawyer before finalizing any settlement with ICBC. Compensation for bone fracture injuries may include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, out-of-pocket expenses (including medical expenses), the cost of future care, past and future wage loss, and loss of earning capacity.
