Most of us have broken a bone in childhood, or at least have known a friend who has. As a child, a broken bone can be a badge of honor and distinction, however, serious fracture injuries can be extremely painful, disabling and can severely compromise a person’s mobility and quality of life, at any age. As we get older, our bones become more brittle and more prone to fracture.
We at Heimanson & Wolf, LLP have represented clients who have suffered serious fractures as a result of the following:
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Automobile Accidents
- Train Accidents
- Plane Accidents
- Physical Assaults
- Construction Accidents
Some fractures require corrective surgeries (open reduction and internal fixation), including the surgical placement of metal nails, screws and plates in an effort to correct the fracture. These surgeries can often result in complications, such as infections, and very seldomly achieve a return to full level of pain free function.
In the case of some joint fractures, such as hip fractures, shoulder fractures, knee fractures and ankle fractures, the only corrective measure that can be taken is a surgical joint replacement surgery, which is a serious medical procedure.
If you have suffered a serious fracture as a result of someone else’s negligence or misconduct, it is important that you properly protect your rights to full compensation by retaining an experienced fracture attorney. The attorneys at Heimanson & Wolf, LLP., have handled many serious fracture cases. Our Los Angeles fracture lawyers have gained a strong understanding of the medical and legal issues associated with fractures and their surgical repair.
