Ocala Attorney for Broken Bones
Broken bones are a common injury in many different types of accidents, including:
- Auto accidents
- Bicycle, motorcycle and golf cart collisions
- On-the-job accidents
- Slip & fall and other premises liability accidents
- Defective products
Broken bones can be divided into two categories, based how the break occurred:
- Clean fractures. A clean fracture is the easiest type of broken bone to treat and can usually be set using a cast for several weeks. Victims of a clean fracture need to take it easy and keep their cast clean and dry. X-rays are taken after the specified healing period to determine if the cast can be removed, or if it needs to be replaced with a new cast to further the healing process.
- Shattered bones, or comminuted fractures. Frequently occurring in auto accidents, this type of broken bone is difficult to heal. It often requires surgery and sometimes the individual may lose some function of that particular area of the body. Accident victims who suffer from shattered bones may experience temporary or permanent disability as a result.
Depending on the type of treatment needed, the medical expenses for a broken bone can be significant.
If you were injured in an accident that resulted from another person or company’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation for hospital bills, surgeries, medication and physical therapy.
