Broken Bones from Motorcycle Accident, Chicago Lawyer

Negligence plays a significant role in injuries resulting in broken bones. If you were injured in a car accident because the offending party failed to use reasonable care, you may be entitled to compensation.

Broken bones are the most common type of injury from car and motorcycle accidents. You will immediately know if the damage is severe. However, some breaks are small enough to go undetected and can only be found by diagnostic imagery.

The Main Types of Broken Bones

There are a variety of possible bone fractures.

  • Complete Fracture: Your bone is completely separated into two pieces.
  • Greenstick Fracture: This type of break occurs in young children whose bones are soft. The bone distorts and cracks like when you bend a green tree branch.
  • Comminuted Fracture: This is when your bones break in multiple places, shattered bones also fit into this category. Recovery may include metal plates and screws.
  • Open Fracture:  This type is the most severe. An open fracture is when the force of the break is strong enough to puncture through the skin out into the open air. There is a high chance of bone infection. You might faint.

Negligence and Compensation

Negligence plays a significant role in injuries resulting in broken bones. If you were injured in a car accident because the offending party failed to use reasonable care, you may be entitled to compensation. Having hospital bills covered isn’t enough; there could be extensive and long-lasting damage.

You need an experienced lawyer to ensure that you get the level of compensation you deserve.
