Broken Bone Injury Attorney

New York City Broken Bone Injury Attorney

New York City Broken Bones or Fractures Lawyer

Broken bones, or fractures, or normally not considered serious, but they can nonetheless result in long-term consequences. In some circumstances, a fracture can result in multiple surgeries, potentially permanent limited mobility, and an inability to work in their chosen profession. If you have suffered a broken bone due to the negligence of another party, please contact an NYC injury lawyer at Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP to explore all your legal options for compensation.

What is the Difference Between a Simple and Compound Fracture?

In a “simple” fracture, the broken bones remain in the body and do not penetrate the skin. Depending on the nature of the fracture, however, a cast may not be enough. Surgery may still be needed to repair the damage.

In a “compound” fracture, bone penetrates the skin. When this occurs, the bone and the tissue inside the body are exposed to bacteria in the external environment. In some instances, this can lead to serious or even deadly infections.

If you sustained either of these injuries, speak to a New York City broken bone lawyer to find out if you should fight for compensation.

Types of Fracture Injuries in NYC

Depending on the nature of the trauma that they have experienced, there are many ways that a bone can break, with varying consequences in the necessary treatment options and long-term impact upon quality of life.

  • Hairline fracture – This partial fracture of the bone may not show up on an X-ray.
  • Compression fracture – This is most commonly seen in the spine. Trauma creates sufficient pressure on the bone to cause it to collapse.
  • Avulsion fracture – A piece of bone is broken off by a muscle or ligament pulling on it.
  • Greenstick fracture – Most common in children, this occurs when a bone breaks partly on one side but because part of the bone can bend, it does not break completely.
  • Impacted fracture – The fracture causes a fragment of one bone to go into another.
  • Longitudinal fracture – A break along the length of a bone.
  • Spiral fracture – The break occurs because the bone has been twisted.
  • Stress fracture – After repeated stress and strain, a bone finally breaks.
  • Comminuted fracture – The bone breaks into a number of smaller pieces.

If a bone will not heal properly with just a cast, surgery may be performed to insert a plate, rod or pin that can hold the bone in place as it heals. This is known as Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) surgery. The exact approach for such a procedure will vary according to the nature of the break and the location of the bone.

What is an Intraarticular Fracture?

When the break-in fracture crosses the surface of a joint, it is referred to as an “intraarticular” fracture. These are of special concern because of the result in damage to the cartilage.

The damage to the cartilage reduces its ability to act as a cushion between the bones in the joint, and as the bones heal, changes in the alignment can combine with the loss of cushioning to create significant pain. Over time, this can lead to the development of arthritis and dramatic impacts on mobility.

Because these fractures could have a lasting impact, you should look into getting compensated for the injury. Contact one of our New York City bone fracture injury attorneys to find out if you have a case.
