Orthopedic injuries (typically fractures – broken bones) are often caused by car accidents and falls. In many cases, the fractures heal and there is little or no long term consequences to the injured person. In other cases, the fractured bone heals, but there is residual long term pain, suffering and in some cases significant permanent disability. In every case, injured persons are entitled to advance a claim for compensation of their injuries are the result of someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence.
Many injury victims find that their function has been impaired to some degree even after they have healed from a broken bone. Many of our clients explain that they continue to experience discomfort, pain or disability, long after their surgeons and physicians tell them the broken bones have healed. The long term consequences of fractures and other orthopedic injuries can be significant, disabling and permanent, depending on the extent of the injury or injuries. We believe that no one ever really fully recovers from a broken bone.
