Broken Bone Injury Attorney

The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani: Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Southern California

A broken bone can leave you in pain, out of work, and with a pile of medical bills. Healing can take time and require continuing care. At The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani, our personal injury attorney in Los Angeles specializes in cases involving broken bone injuries. A broken bone, or fracture can puncture the skin in severe cases. Bone breaks often directly result from a sudden, traumatic event such as a car accident or slip and fall.

The three most commonly broken bones include the collarbone (clavicle), arm, wrist, and hip. In the arm, the humerus (upper arm bone) and radius and ulna (lower arm bones), are most vulnerable. The pelvis, femur, and femoral head (bone structure that fits in the hip socket) are vulnerable during hip injuries, while various small bones of the wrist may be damaged by a fall or impact.

A broken bone injury may heal with few lasting effects. It can also cause damage that, in combination with a severe fracture, can have lasting consequences. If you or a loved one has been hurt, The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani can help, especially if another party’s actions or negligence are to blame. Starting with a free consultation, we can build a case and fight to get you proper compensation. There are no fees unless your case wins.

Types of Broken Bone Fractures

Simple fracture: A break in a bone, but surrounding tissues have not been damaged, and the bone has not ruptured the surface of the skin.

The broken fracture has cut through the skin, which increases the risk of infection and may indicate damage to underlying tissues.

Usually associated with the spine, in which thinner or softer material in the vertebrae collapses, compressing the spine and changing its shape.

A complete separation of bone fragments leaves a gap; surgery is often required to rejoin the bone and aid the healing process.

The bone is cracked but not completely broken, so it doesn’t break into pieces; it’s also known as a greenstick fracture or hairline fracture.

Runs along the long axis of the bone with no displacement; often occurs with skull fractures caused by blunt force trauma over a wide area.

Occurs in long bones, such as those of the arm or leg, in response to a twisting force, and requires surgery and physical therapy to recover from.

A bone that’s broken into more than two fragments, essentially splintering into multiple pieces, as can happen in high-impact events like car crashes.

What Can Cause a Broken Bone Injury?

How Is a Broken Bone Treated?

Treating a broken bone quickly is important in any situation. If it is an open break, emergency surgery is required to correct the offset bone and close the wound. Delayed treatment for any broken bone injury increases the risk of long-term complications such as impaired movement, pain, and a variety of health issues.

With or without treatment, a broken bone fracture can cause:

  • Internal Bleeding

  • Skin Lacerations

  • Punctured Organs

  • Nerve Damage

  • Muscle Damage

  • Blood Clots

  • Blood in Organs

  • Diminished Range of Motion

Recovery time can range from weeks to months, depending on the bone fractured, severity of the break, and other associated injuries. Treatment may require surgery and often requires a cast or other equipment to hold the bone together, while activity may need to be limited for some time. You will likely incur medical bills through the duration of this process. Your broken bone must be stable enough to tolerate normal activity, which can mean being out of work.

If you’ve suffered a broken bone injury in a car accident, you may be entitled to more financial compensation than you think. Insurance companies often aggressively challenge accident claims, but The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani can prevent them from making a lowball offer. Our serious injury attorney can negotiate a fair settlement or take your case to trial. If you or a loved one has suffered a broken bone at the hands of at-fault driver or other party, contact our attorneys in Los Angeles for help by calling 888-952-2952 today.
