New York Personal Injury LawyerAccidents can result in serious injuries, including bone fractures. All fractures (broken bones) can be classified as either closed fractures in which the skin remains intact or open fractures in which the bone penetrates the skin. Open fractures also carry a risk of infection.
There are a variety of types of fractures that may be sustained, including:
- Compression Fractures
- Complete Fractures
- Incomplete Fractures
- Linear Fractures
- Oblique Fractures
- Spiral Fractures
- Comminuted Fractures
- Impacted Fractures
Treatment of Fractures
A fracture is treated by what is called reduction. A reduction is an attempt to reduce the amount of displacement or angulation of the broken ends of bone. Generally, this is accomplished by a closed reduction in which force is manually applied until an acceptable alignment is achieved and then casting to hold the bone in place.
Where a closed reduction cannot achieve an adequate alignment or the bone ends are not sufficiently stable, a surgical procedure may be required. Surgical procedures to treat the fracture may include:
Accidents Causing Fractures
Most bone fractures result from a traumatic episode or accident. A fracture may result from almost any type of accident, a slip and fall on a wet floor, a trip and fall on a broken sidewalk, a motor vehicle accident, a workplace accident, or a construction site accident.
When the accident was caused by the fault or negligence of another person or entity, the injured person may be entitled to damages or compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages.
If the accident happened at work or while on the job, the person hurt in the accident may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
