While fractures and broken bones are common accident injuries, if the accident was someone else’s fault, you could be entitled to compensation.
How Severe Was Your Break?
A broken arm or wrist can lead to incredible amounts of pain, the need to take time off work, and prolonged recovery time. More severe and complicated breaks will correspond to greater medical expenses and longer healing times.
Regardless of which bone you broke or how long it takes to recover, we can ensure that you receive the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Common Types of Broken Bones
There are many different types of broken bones, including the following:
- Compound fracture
- Closed fracture
- Dislocation and fracture
- Incomplete fracture
The type of fracture and its location will determine your ability and time needed to recover.
For example, a spinal fracture would necessitate a more complicated recovery process than an arm fracture. The worst types of fractures and broken bones are typically comminuted fractures—where the bone breaks in several places.
How a Broken Bone Can Impact You Long Term
As long as you receive proper medical care immediately following your injury, your broken bone should recover and heal correctly.
However, sometimes bones are not set properly due to the necessity of treating more serious injuries or because medical care was not sought. In these instances, the bone may never feel quite right, and you could live with constant pain and discomfort.
Mobility Issues from Broken Bones
A broken bone that does not heal correctly can lead to mobility problems. This can lead to difficulty performing job duties or engaging in hobbies such as running or swimming.
An Orange County Broken Bone Car Accident Lawyer Can Prove Negligence
If you suffered a broken bone in an accident, you have the right to seek financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and any other expenses associated with your injury.
You must file your lawsuit within two years of the accident, and it is critical that we gather the evidence necessary to prove the other driver’s negligence.
As California is a shared fault state, you could be found partially to blame for the accident. Your financial settlement will then be reduced by that percentage of fault, which makes proving negligence incredibly important.
