Types of Broken Bone Injuries
There are three types of broken bone injuries that often result from accidents:
- Hairline Fractures
These types of fractures are thin in diameter, and are often the result of bones being cracked or not broken all the way through the bone. These breaks can be very painful—and recovery can take weeks or months. Victims may also suffer compound fractures, which is when a bone is cracked in multiple places.
- Closed Fractures
When a bone breaks all the way through but fails to penetrate outer skin tissue, it’s referred to as a closed fracture. Jagged breaks can result in bone fragments breaking free from the bone—resulting in swelling and extreme pain. Victims may also suffer displaced fractures, which occur when the two pieces of broken bone shift and are no longer aligned.
- Open Fractures
A break is considered an open fracture when the broken bone penetrates through outer skin tissue. Not only are these visually traumatic for victims, they require proper wound care in addition to treatment for the fracture to reduce the risk of infection. Not only can the wound become infected, but the bone may become infected as well.
Our broken bones lawyers know the physical and financial impact fracture injuries can have on accident victims. That’s why we’re here to protect your legal rights to compensation so you can focus on your recovery.
How Much is a Broken Bone Lawsuit Worth?
Unlike soft tissue damage, broken bones are easy to diagnose with an x-ray. Our personal injury legal team can provide medical evidence that proves that your injuries were the result of the accident and show how much and what type of treatment you received in order to get compensation for your medical expenses.
When your broken bone prevents you from working, your personal injury claim can also provide you with compensation for your lost wages.
Accident victims who suffer from broken bones may also be eligible for compensation for their pain and suffering. This type of non-economic damage may vary depending on how badly the victim’s life was disrupted by their injury.
How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
It costs nothing to hire a personal injury lawyer unless we win your case. The team at Ponce Law works on a contingency fee basis, which means we only get paid when you do. No one who comes to our firm for help with a broken bone claim should have to worry about whether or not they can afford a lawyer when they are already dealing with medical expenses after an accident that wasn’t their fault.
