I have a character who has fallen approximately 15 feet (4.5 meters) from a building. The setting is modern day America. What types of injuries would be received from this? What treatments would be used for such injuries as well?
Also the setting is in a deserted area so the character would be driven to a hospital by someone else. How long of a drive could the injured character sustain before serious damage would occur?
I'd like the character to have a recovery time of approximately three months with a moderate to full recovery at the end of that time frame (at least enough that he can function on his own). Would 15 feet be too high for such a short recovery time?
ETA: Thanks to everyone for their helpful answers. This has really given me something to think about in how to write the scene properly now. Thank you!
