Bone Infections

When an individual breaks a bone, he or she may have to wear a cast for six weeks or undergo surgery to reconnect the broken pieces of bone. Unfortunately, recovering from a broken bone is not always as easy as waiting for it to heal.

Some individuals may suffer bone infections after breaking a bone. If you or someone you love suffered a broken bone in an accident that someone else caused and, as a result, you suffered a bone infection, we may be able to help.

Effects of Bone Infections

A bone infection usually occurs following a fracture. Bacteria typically cannot infect a bone unless it can get inside of it. A fracture gives bacteria the perfect opportunity for this.

When bacteria infect a broken bone, the sufferer may be at risk for:

  • Heart inflammation (endocarditis)
  • Whole body inflammation (sepsis)
  • Abnormal protein production (amyloidosis)

Bone infections are usually painful, but when they evolve into these more serious conditions, patients’ lives may be in danger.
