NYC Broken Bone Injury
While we all know that breaking a bone is painful, one may not realize that these injuries can be serious, and even fatal. Different types of breaks in a bone can lead to substantial pain, disability and medical complications. For instance, a pelvic fracture can be very serious and even fatal in the elderly. A skull fracture can also lead to serious problems and can be fatal. If you have suffered an injury, it is important to seek medical attention. If your fracture or injury was caused by another's negligence, contact a NYC Broken Bone Lawyer from our office for guidance. You could be entitled to compensation for your injury, which can include reimbursement for medical costs, pain and suffering and lost income if you are unable to work.
The staff from Stephen Bilkis and associates will advise you that a fracture and break are really one in the same. There are two different types of fractures, open or closed. An open fracture causes the bone to protrude and come through the skin, and a closed does not. Both types of fractures can cause significant pain, rehabilitation time, and lost time from work. Complications may arise, which only prolong recovery times and increase medical bills.
These injuries can create serious problems for the victim. Breaks and fractures can take a very long time to heal. While healing from your injury, you may be unable to work or carry out your daily tasks. Depending on the severity of the injury, surgery may be required. For a bad break or fracture often steel plates, screws and pins are used to help the bone to mend. Even after you have recovered, the bone may be permanently compromised.
If you have suffered an injury because of someone's negligence, you could have a claim against that party. A personal injury claim is often seen in:
- A serious Birth Injury;
- A Motorcycle Accident;
- A taxicab accident;
- A serious Trip and Fall accident;
- An accident involving a pedestrian;
- A serious Bicycle Accident.
If your injury occurred at work, you may have a legal claim against a negligent party in addition to filing a Workers' Compensation claim. There are laws in New York that deal with workers that have been hurt at construction sites for instance. If your injury occurred at work, or you were involved in a Construction Accident, contact our legal team guidance.
