Broken Bone Claims Lawyers
Broken bones are so common that sometimes they’re almost uneventful. Indeed, many bone fractures heal quickly and are actually stronger at the area of fracture than they were previously.
But some fractures are far more serious. If you or a loved one has suffered a fracture due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Our team of experienced personal injury lawyers has years of experience navigating fracture claims and can help provide the strong representation you need.
Long Term Symptoms of Fractures
An accident victim may experience crushing of the bone and multiple serious fractures, all combined with tendon and muscle damage. These accidents can occur from a motor vehicle accident, bicycle accident, slip-and-fall, or recreational vehicle accident.
The long-term symptoms of such injuries includes:
- Reduced range of motion and loss of use;
- Chronic Pain
- Arthritis; and
- Permanent or partial loss of use of limb.
All of these symptoms can negatively alter a victim’s life. Such injuries can affect a victim’s employability, the quality of their intimate and social lives, and their ability to participate in recreational activities.
Common Types of Bone Fractures
Your compensation for a bone fracture will often depend on the type of fracture you’re suffering from. Bone fractures are often categorized as follows:
- Closed or open fracture – When a fracture occurs, it’s classified either as open or closed. Open fractures are when the injury causes the skin to break. This can also be called a compound If the injury does not break the skin, it’s called a closed fracture.
- Complete or partial fracture – A complete fracture occurs when the break separates the bone in two, going completely through the bone. A partial fracture occurs when the break doesn’t go all the way through the bone.
- Displaced or nondisplaced fracture – Displaced fractures occur when the bone snaps in two or more areas, and the ends of the bone have come out of alignment. Often these kinds of fractures involve surgery. A nondisplaced fracture retains its alignment and often only requires a boot, brace, or cast.
