In addition to being painful, broken bones and other fractures can have a disruptive impact on your life. Depending on the nature of your injury, recovery may require bed rest or physical therapy, which can make it impossible for you to work and earn a living. Furthermore, the hospital bills and costs of ongoing medical care associated with a broken bone or fracture can be extensive. If you suffered your injury due to the negligence of another person, you may be eligible for money damages to make up for your losses. Wolf & Pravato can help.
Types of Orthopedic Injuries
The severity of an orthopedic injury can vary, and recovery will be different depending on the nature of the break. We have represented clients suffering from a number of different injuries, including:
- Simple fractures — when a bone breaks, but does not pierce the skin
- Compound fractures — when a bone breaks and pierces the skin
- Incomplete or hairline fractures — when a bone cracks, but does not break entirely
- Comminuted fractures — when a bone breaks into several pieces
- Greenstick fractures — when a bone bends, but does not break (a common injury for children)

There are many types of accidents that can lead to broken bones or fractures. Some of the most common include:
It does not matter the type of accident you were involved in; if it was a result of another person’s negligence, recklessness or carelessness, you may be eligible for damages. An experienced Fort Myers orthopedic injury attorney from Wolf & Pravato can help you prove liability and obtain the compensation you deserve. Our attorneys are shrewd negotiators, but if the other party refuses our demands at the negotiating table, we are not afraid to face them in court. However, just the idea of facing us at trial is often enough for the defendant to agree to our terms.
Our attorneys have the resources to investigate your accident to prove that the responsible party acted negligently, and that it directly resulted in your injury. We can review all relevant medical records and retain expert witnesses to show that your injuries were a direct result of the accident. We can also conduct a thorough investigation of the accident scene itself, interview witnesses, and collect traffic or security camera footage.
