New Orleans Broken Bones Injury Attorney
The Long-Term Effect Of Broken Bones And Fractures
Metairie Fracture Injury Lawyers Looking Out For You
For more than 20 years, our founding attorney has represented victims of motor vehicle collisions and other personal injury accidents. There are 206 bones in the human body, and we have probably recovered compensation for most of them, including:
Broken jaw or facial bones
Hip fracture or broken pelvis
Fractured ribs or sternum
Broken leg, foot or ankle
Broken shoulder blade or collarbone
Broken arm or elbow
Broken hand or fingers
Most people recover from a broken bone, in which case compensation chiefly covers medical treatment, lost wages, and the short-term pain and suffering. In the case of weight-bearing bones, compound fractures, shattered bones or crush injuries, it may be necessary to surgically repair the bones with metal rods and pins. Such injuries usually mean many months of rehab and lost time from work.
Improper or incomplete healing can lead to weakness, lost range of motion, chronic pain, infection or more surgery. A broken bone that becomes a lifelong injury adds significant value to a personal injury claim. This is why we delay settlement until the client fully recovers or reaches maximum medical improvement.
