Broken Bones

Colorado Personal Injury Attorney

[video_seo id=10 autoplay=0 width=480 height=270] Some of the most common injuries after an automobile or motorcycle accident are broken bones and fractures. Even motor vehicle accidents at low speeds can cause serious broken bones and fractures in nearly any part of the body. Unfortunately, these injuries can take months to heal fully and severe fractures can lead to a lifetime of stiffness, pain and disabilities in the affected extremity. As a result, it is important to contact an experienced Colorado personal injury attorney after your accident to review you case. If your accident was caused by another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and for any rehabilitation you might need to recover.

Types of Broken Bones and Fractures:

  • Compound Fracture
  • Closed Fracture
  • Complete Fracture
  • Hairline Fracture
  • Compression Fracture
  • Spiral Fracture
  • Segmental Fracture
  • Oblique Fracture
  • Fragmented Fracture
Each type of fracture or broken bone requires a different treatment and may result in different disabilities. In general, the more severe the fracture is, the more difficult it will be to achieve a full recovery. Fractures that involve a complete break or a shattering of the bone itself may require multiple surgeries, pins, plates and even traction in order to heal. Colorado Car Accident Law Firm Immediately following an accident, it is important to receive medical treatment immediately. Many fractures can only be diagnosed with an x-ray. As such, you will need a qualified radiologist to review the x-rays carefully and diagnose your fracture. If you or someone you love has suffered from a broken bone or fracture following a car accident, it is important to contact a Colorado personal injury attorney immediately. While the majority of broken bones will heal well with minimal treatment (casting or splinting), severe cases can cause permanent disabilities and a life time of pain and suffering. As a result, you will need compensation for your medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost wages that have resulted from your traumatic accident.
