Broken Bones

While typically not a life-threatening injury, broken bones are can be painful and are often slow to heal. These types of injuries are commonly suffered in car, truck, motorcycle and bicycle accidents and commonly involve the arms, legs, wrists, ribs, hips and jaw.

If you suffer a broken bone injury in a motor vehicle accident or slip-and-fall accident, the first thing you should do is to see a doctor and obtain proper medical care. If you know or believe that negligence caused or contributed to your injury, you should contact a personal injury attorney at the Rothchild Law Office.

Many Side-Effects And Complications Stem From Broken Bone Injuries

The two most common types of fractures are simple and compound. Simple fractures occur when a bone is broken but does not puncture the skin. A compound fracture occurs when a broken bone comes through the skin.

Even under the best of circumstances, it takes an average of 12 weeks for a broken bone to heal. During this time, you’ll incur hefty medical bills and may be forced to take time off of work. In some cases, complications may arise from fractures when a bone break injures muscles, tendons, arteries or nerves. These types of injuries require physical therapy and can result in reduced mobilization, loss of use and permanent disability.
