Fractures

A fracture injury can be very serious and life-altering. Many fractures arise after a traumatic event, such as a car, truck, or accident on the job, such as an injury that occurs at a constructions site.

If you suffer a fracture, it can happen in a few different ways. It could occur in the femur, which is a strong bone in your body, or it could occur in the tibia, which is commonly thought of as your shin bone. The severity of the break determines how the leg should be treated.

There may just be surgery that is done or there may be an implant device that is planted into the leg, such as a rod or screw. Other times the affected limb that has suffered the fracture may have to be put in a splint, brace, or cast. You will know if you are suffering from a fracture if you have severe pain, bruising, the affected limb feels very tender, or if you notice significant swelling. Fractures greatly affect mobility.

Types of Fractures

From a medical standpoint, there are a few different kinds of fractures that you can suffer. A closed fracture is one that has not caused damage to the tissue. To treat this kind of injury, you have to set the bone fragment to allow the bone to heal on its own. Open fractures are more severe because they involve fractures that break through the skin.

A complete fracture is one where there is a separation of the done when the break in the bone occurs. An incomplete fracture, by contrast, occur when there is still a fracture but the bones remain connected. A spiral fracture come about when a great amount of force twists the bone until it snaps and causes more damage to the bone.

To treat this, there will need to be surgery implants. Impacted fracture occurs when two bones that are forced into each other. Comminuted fracture is the most serious of them all because there are a number of breaks along the one. Surgery is almost always required to put in pins or screws so the bone can heal.

Common Reasons for Fractures

If you have suffered a fracture, chances are it occurred in one of the following ways:

  • Car accident
  • Truck accident
  • Motorcycle accident
  • Bicycle accident
  • Construction accident
  • On the job injury
  • Worksite accident
  • Slip and fall

Fracture injuries typically do not just heal on their own. They take extensive medical care and specialized medical knowledge in order to diagnose and treat. Fractures can occur in a number of ways where someone or a company might have been negligent in how they acted towards you. The negligence may occur in a number of different ways, from car accidents to worksites that were not kept in a safe manner. Regardless of how the fracture occurred, you most likely need representation to make sure that you are receiving the compensation you deserve and that is allowed to you under Washington State law for your injuries.

Hired Chris for a personal injury case. I knew the Insurance companies would try to do what they do best – delay payment, save money, and not be fair! (Sorry, not a fan!) And they did just that. Fortunately I hired a caring, compassionate, awesome, kind, focused, brilliant, up and coming Rockstar of an attorney that believed in me and my case. Anytime something came up, I would call him and he would say "I’ll take care of it" and I knew it would be handled. You can count on Chris to go the extra steps to help you, and I really believe in him. Wouldn’t hesitate to hire or recommend. Thank you Chris for being a fair and honest man and Attorney! Anonymous
