Most people just do not realize or think about the amount of risk that they are exposed to on the average day. Every day we engage in activities or put ourselves in situations that, while the chances may be slim, expose us to the possibility of a bone fracture. In some cases, these injuries may be our own fault, the fault of another party and in others, there may be nobody to blame. In the situations where another party caused the injury, you need the advice of a Hollywood broken bone injury attorney.
About bone fractures
A broken bone injury can occur in a wide range of different circumstances and the injury can vary in severity depending on certain factors. The location of the broken bone and the degree to which it is broken are key factors in determining the severity. A compound fracture is typically going to be worse than a closed fracture, but this is not always necessarily true. When a person suffers multiple fractures, the injuries tend to be even more debilitating.
With broken bone injuries, the individual may need extensive medical treatment and rehabilitative therapy. In many cases they could be out of work for a period or even lose the ability to perform their job altogether. Along with that, a bone fracture can result in a lifetime of pain and limited ability. If another person caused these injuries, you should not have to take all of these losses on your own and a personal injury lawyer can help you to recover compensation for these losses.
How to bone injuries occur
Human bones are actually pretty strong, but they can only withstand so much. When a bone is placed under too much stress or an excessive amount of force acts upon it, the bone will break. Not only will this cause damage to the bone itself, but it can also cause damage to soft tissue such as muscle, tendons and ligaments. Here are some of the more common causes of broken bones that result in personal injury claims:
- Slip and Fall
- Automobile accidents
- Workplace injury
