Why You Need a Fractures and Broken Bones Lawyer

Proving that the responsible party was negligent involves showing that the party had a duty to exercise reasonable care and breached that duty and that the breach of such duty directly caused your injuries. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can investigate your accident, determine and prove liability, assess the full extent of your losses, negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, and fight for your rights in court, if necessary.
Common Causes of Fractures
Trauma is among the most common causes of fractures. Broken bones can result from all types of accidents. Common causes include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Dangerous and defective products
Types of Fractures
Fractures (broken bones) occur in a variety of forms. Bones may be completely or partially fractured lengthwise, crosswise, or in multiple pieces. Common types of fractures include:
- Stable fractures, in which the ends of the broken bones line up
- Transverse fractures, with a horizontal fracture line
- Oblique fractures, with an angled pattern
- Open, compound fractures, in which the skin is pierced by the bone or by the blow that causes the break
- Comminuted fractures, in which the bone shatters into several pieces
Symptoms of Broken Bones
Fractures can be painful and prevent movement of the injured area. Common symptoms of broken bones include:
- Edema: Swelling and tenderness in the area of the injury.
- Contusions: Bruising, wherein the injury transmitted through unbroken skin to underlying tissue causing rupture of small blood vessels and escape of blood into the tissue with resulting discoloration.
- Deformity: The injured body part may look out of place and the bone may pierce the skin.
Damages You Can Recover
If someone else’s negligence caused your accident and broken bones, you may be able to recover compensation. Compensatory damages you may be entitled to claim include medical expenses (past and future), lost wages, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
