Supposing you already had a broken hand in a cast & you fell very hard on that hand, could you get a broken wrist too?

In brief: Unlikely to break

It would be highly unlikely (and very unlucky) to break a wrist that is already in a cast.
It could happen, but it would be highly unusual.

As Dr. Meyer noted this would be highly unlikely . If you have increasing pain in your cast or 'broke' your cast w/ your fall call and see your treating orthopedic surgeon.
