Anyone who has suffered a broken bone or fracture understands the pain and lasting effects that a bone injury can have.

Types of Bone Injuries
There are several types of broken bones that may be suffered in an accident, including:
- Compound fractures: This is where the bone breaks and is exposed through the skin
- Oblique fracture: The line of the break runs diagonally to the axis of the bone
- Comminuted fracture: Parts of the bone are separated, splintered or fragmented
- Spiral fracture: The line of the break is helical
- Linear fracture: The break in the bone is parallel to the axis of the bone
- Transverse fracture: The break in the bone is at a right angle to the axis
- Compacted fracture: Pieces of the bone are broken and smashed together
Many times, after severe broken bones, orthopedic surgery is required and pins, rods, metal plates and screws may be placed in the bone. These devices may have to be implanted for the rest of that person’s life and may leave the person in a great deal of pain and discomfort. Also, scars and disfigurements may also result from broken bones and the required surgeries for these injuries.
Do not deal with these injuries alone and without the compensation that you deserve. Our lawyers will work to hold accountable those who caused your injury and will work to provide the level of compensation that you will need to treat your injuries and sustain your medical care until you fully recover.
