Accidents and Broken Bones
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.
