Bone Fractures

Bone Fracture Attorneys in Encino

Local Law Firm with Client-Focused Service

Even though our bones are hard and able to absorb different kinds of impacts in accidents, if the trauma exceeds the bone’s ability to bend, it will break. Broken bones or fractures are some of the most common injuries in all types of accidents and occur when the body is thrown, like from a vehicle, when it collides with and object. Or when it absorbs the impact of a collision. If you or a loved one has suffered a bone fracture injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you should seek legal advice from Binder Law Group immediately before you speak with an insurance company or sign anything. Our Encino bone fracture attorneys have handled a variety of injuries, from rib fractures to broken femurs, and are committed to securing fair and full compensation for your injuries.

Common Types of Bone Fractures

Bone fractures vary in severity depending on the force that caused the fracture as well as the condition of the victim at the time of the accident. Fractures can happen anywhere there are bones, and most commonly impact the hand, wrist, arm, shoulder, ankle, leg, clavicle, ribs, hip, and pelvis.

Common types of fractures include:

  • Open, compound fracture: These occur when the skin is broken at the time of the fracture after being penetrated by a bone or a blow. These types of fractures are serious because they carry a risk of infection of the bone known as osteomyelitis.
  • Stable fracture: In this fracture, the broken ends of the bone are lined up and are just barely out of place.
  • Transverse facture: These fractures have a horizontal fracture line.
  • Comminuted fracture: These fractures occur when the bone shatters into three or more pieces.
  • Oblique fracture: This fracture occurs at an angle.

Fractures can occur in a variety of ways, though they’re fairly common in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and slip and fall accidents. The greater the force of impact in an auto accident, the more serious the fracture can be.

How Do I Know if I Have a Fracture?

Not all people seek medical treatment after an accident, though they should. Though you may not be in pain or notice any injuries at the time of your accident, some injuries can take hours or even days to make themselves known and can worsen the longer you go without medical care.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may have a fracture injury and should seek medical treatment as soon as possible:

  • Skin near the break is bruised
  • Your limb seems shorter
  • You can’t support your weight
  • You have a bump or swelling
  • You can see your bone protruding through the skin
  • Movement or touch is extremely painful

Helping You Recover with Ease

If you sustained bone fracture injury as a result of a car accident, motorcycle crash, slip and fall accident, or workplace injury, your main goal is to get the appropriate treatment and care, pay all your medical bills, resume work, recover wages or income that you lost due to your bone fracture injury, and generally restore your normal routine.

Unfortunately, this can take time and be expensive. Recovery time for bone fracture injury can take several weeks to several months. In many cases, patients recovering from bone fractures are still unable to resume normal activity even after the fracture has healed. Many fractures require doctors to use metal plates, pins, and screws to fix, and you may be required to use crutches or wheelchairs for long periods of time. These expenses can quickly add up, but our attorneys are able to gather the evidence needed to support your claim and show that the driver or entity responsible for your accident was negligent.
