INJURY LAWYER HELPS VICTIMS OF ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSED BADLY BROKEN BONES OR CRUSHED JOINTS

There are many different types of accidents that could cause broken bones or crushed joints. Each case is different and the factors that will determine the settlement will vary. It’s always best to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer who can evaluate your case and guide you through the process.

Fortunately, for the most part, broken bones are not life-threatening and usually heal with time. However, broken bones can affect the victim and the victim’s family in many other ways such as:

  • High medical bills associated with treatment
  • Temporary disablement or immobilization
  • Lost wages for having to be out of work during the healing process
  • Complications leading to ongoing chronic pain
  • In addition, insurance companies and medical providers often overwhelm the victims with complicated paperwork and obstacles. Having an experienced injury lawyer can relieve you of the complications and enable you to direct your attention to healing.

Types of Broken Bones

One of the most important factors in any personal injury case is evidence. When it comes to a broken bone or fracture, there is no question that the injury took place. Having an x-ray will make your settlement a lot easier but there are still other factors that are involved. Valuing the case involves examining how bad the injury is.

There are a few different categories your injury can fall into:

  • Open Broken Bone Injuries: This is when a bone breaks the skin’s surface. It has the additional risk of a deep bone infection called osteomyelitis which could be acute or chronic and is caused by infectious germs.
  • Closed Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bones break but do not cause a hole in the outer skin. They are also referred to as simple fractures.
  • Displaced Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bone snaps into one or more pieces and moves out of its normal positioning.
  • Non-displaced Broken Bone Injuries: This is where the bone cracks but does not move or break.
  • Greenstick Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bone has been bent because of trauma but has not broken. It is more common in children.
  • Transverse Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the break is at a right angle to the bone.
  • Linear Broken Bone Injuries: This is the opposite of a transverse injury.

There are many different types of bone injuries and only a medical examiner can properly identify which category your injury falls into. Severe bone injuries could be caused by a car, bus, motorcycle, truck, defective products, medical malpractice and many other accidents that involve a negligent party acting irresponsibly. If someone was acting negligent and caused you to suffer a severe bone injury, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact a personal injury lawyer for help.
