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. In addition to the hospital bills immediately following your injury, the cost of ongoing medical care or physical therapy associated with a broken bone or fracture can be extensive. If you suffered a broken bone or fracture due to the negligence of another person, you may be eligible for damages to make up for your losses.
How Can Our Boynton Beach Orthopedic Injury Attorneys Help?
There are a number of situations in which an accident can occur that can result in an orthopedic injury. Some of the most common include:
- car accidents
- boating accidents
- motorcycle accidents
- slip and fall
- defective products
Regardless of the type of accident you were involved in, if it was the result of another person’s negligence, recklessness or carelessness, you may be eligible for compensation. 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.
An experienced Boynton Beach personal injury lawyer from the law office of 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.
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)
