Broken Bone Injury Attorney in Los Angeles & Orange County
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.
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:
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.
