California Bone Fracture Injury Attorneys
Personal injury lawyers pursue payment for people hurt in accidents
Bone fractures are serious injuries. They are incredibly painful and could require immobilization, surgery and long-term rehabilitation. Partial fractures and complete bone breaks are commonly caused by car crashes, slip and fall incidents, physical altercations, workplace accidents and other instances of negligence and willful misconduct. When this happens, you deserve help from dedicated California attorneys who have a strong track record in these types of cases. At Mastagni Holstedt, A.P.C., we examine the facts, explain your legal options and work to get you the compensation you deserve from those whose carelessness led to your bone injury.
Definition of a bone fracture
Millions of Americans suffer broken bones annually. These painful injuries can limit a victim for months and even longer if the fracture does not heal correctly. There are several types of bone fractures, including:
- Open and closed fractures — If an injury breaks the skin and damages the bone, this is referred to as an open fracture or a compound fracture. When a broken bone does not pierce the skin, it is called a closed fracture.
- Partial fractures — Even a fracture that causes the bone to buckle or chip without breaking is serious and requires prompt medical treatment. These types of injuries are often referred to as partial fractures.
- Displaced fractures — A displaced fracture leaves a gap between the portions of the bone where the break occurs. These nearly always require surgery to bind or fuse the bone back together.
- Stress fractures — Tiny cracks in the bone usually caused by repeated impact to a foot or another part of the body is referred to as stress fracture. These injuries can trigger a great deal of pain and might require a long recovery period despite their small size.
You might also hear other medical terms used to describe your bone fracture, such as spiral, avulsion or transverse. No matter what type of broken bone injury you’ve incurred or where it is on your body, our personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and skills to build a strong legal argument on your behalf.
