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
