Accidents and Broken Bones

Broken bones are significant injuries that often require medical attention that can last for weeks and sometimes months.
Any type of sudden blunt-force impact can result in serious orthopedic injury. Bone fractures are commonly seen in car and motorcycle accidents, as well as slip and fall incidents. This type of injury is usually very painful, and requires emergency medical attention.

Virtually any bone in the body can suffer a fracture, including the skull and facial bones. If you have fractured your skull, jaw, spine, pelvis, or hip, the injury can be very serious. Breaking a leg, arm, foot, or hand can also mean extensive medical treatment and loss of wages.

A serious fracture, technically called a displaced fracture, means the bone has not only cracked, but separated into more than one piece. In worst cases, the bone splinters into multiple pieces (in medical terms, a comminuted fracture.) Patients suffering a severe fracture are at risk for complications, including infection of the bone and damage to blood vessels or nerves.

If your injury was caused by the negligent, careless, or willful action of another party, they, or their insurance company, can be held liable for these damages.

Any serious bone fracture will require surgery, and the bone may need to be set with pins, plates, screws, or similar devices. Recovery may include lying in traction or wearing a cast, and there will usually be need for extensive rehabilitation. The healing time ranges from a few to several months. Most patients will eventually fully heal, but in rare cases, there is permanent orthopedic impairment.

"My husband was in a Motorcycle accident on June 11, 2014. He was seriously injured and spent several weeks in a trauma unit and 4 weeks in a rehab facility after several surgeries. I called John Kenison the day after the accident and he walked me through the difficult process of how to handle hospital bills and how to contact the Insurance companies involved. My husband was out of work for 4 months and Kenison Law was able to help us recover all loss wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. They are a caring law firm and are able to explain complex information during a vehicle difficult situation. I would highly recommend this law office." M. H.

"In the late summer of 2015, I had the misfortune of falling in a public place of business through no fault of my own. I was seriously injured, both my legs, which resulted in almost 6 months of modified bed rest and convalescing. Needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed with doctors; specialists; physical therapists and many other wonderful people. As if this was not daunting enough, it was told to me, in this time of utter chaos, I needed to engage an attorney. I have never had to hire an attorney..." R.W.W.
