Broken Bone Injuries (fractures)

If you or a loved one suffered a broken bone (fracture) due to an accident or injury on someone else's property, you should know your legal rights. Treating a broken bone is expensive and can result in months of lost wages. It can also have lasting effects ranging from stiffness and inflexibility to arthritis and the risk of future breaks.

What Should I Do If I Break A Bone?
Several factors can help or hinder the bone healing process. Avoid nicotine intake because it hinders bone healing and increase your calcium intake. Weight-bearing exercises, after the bone has healed sufficiently to bear the weight, also build bone strength.

Open fractures in which the skin is broken will carry an elevated risk of infection and should be treated by removing any dirt, contamination and dead tissue, and then applying antibiotic treatments. A simple closed fracture is much easier to treat and has a better prognosis.

The fractured pieces must be restored to their natural positions if possible and maintain those positions until the bone heals. Surgical methods of treating fractures have their own risks and benefits, but usually surgery is done only if conservative treatment has failed or is very likely to fail. This might be in the case of a fracture complicated by osteoporosis, a genetic degeneration of the bones.

Infection is especially dangerous in bones, due to their limited blood flow. There are also special risks and complications for fractures in children because they are still growing. It is important to understand the immediate and long-term risks and treatment expectations of your particular injury in order to assess the financial damage and life impact.

What Former Clients Say

"One of the first things I asked when I finally woke up was, 'Was it my fault?' This terrible thing happened and Fred proved I wasn't at fault. I can't tell you what a relief that was to know that and to have someone taking care of the stuff like the billing and the insurance companies and the hospital when this happened. Fred really went the extra mile to prove our case."
