Accidents Resulting in Fractures and Broken Bones

Qualified attorneys assisting the Bay Area injured

At the family-owned Law Office of Michel and Michelle Mandel, our lawyers are dedicated to providing a comfortable setting where injured clients can feel at ease. We listen carefully to clients and work hard to recover fair compensation for broken bones and fractures sustained in accidents caused by the negligence of drivers, property owners, doctors, businesses and others.

Common causes of fractures

Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents in the Bay Area. People are particularly susceptible to fracture injuries in pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents because they are unprotected when struck by larger vehicles. Sports injuries and slip and fall accidents are also common causes of fractures. Most fractures among adults age 65 and older are caused by falls. Fractures may also occur because of low bone density and osteoporosis. Failure to diagnose these diseases may be cause for a medical negligence lawsuit. At the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel, our attorneys offer comprehensive personal injury representation for victims suffering fractures and broken bones as a result of all types of accidents caused by the negligence of others.

Types of fracture injuries

The most common broken bones resulting from falls are fractures of the spine, hip, forearm, leg, ankle, pelvis, upper arm and hand. Vehicle accidents cause some of the most severe fracture injuries, including factures of the spine. Our seasoned personal injury attorneys can help clients injured by the negligence of others recover compensation for all types of fractures, including:

  • Skull fracture
  • Nasal fracture
  • Spinal fracture
  • Broken neck or collarbone
  • Hip fracture
  • Pelvic fracture
  • Arm or leg fracture
  • Joint fracture
  • Stress fracture
  • Compound fracture

Treatment for fractures and broken bones

It is important to seek medical treatment for fractures and broken bones to minimize the long-term harm that may otherwise occur. Depending on the type and severity of the fracture, various treatments and medical aids may be needed, such as:

  • Emergency treatment
  • Treatment by an orthopedic specialist
  • Bone x-rays
  • Joint x-rays
  • Bone scan
  • Casts and splints
  • Slings and crutches
  • Plates, nails, screws or pins
  • Bone grafts
  • Closed reduction
  • Pain relievers
  • Surgery

Medical treatment for broken bones can be expensive, and many injured people miss work while seeking treatment or waiting for injuries to heal. If you suffer injuries in an accident, our San Francisco lawyers can help you recover just compensation for the full extent of your injuries and financial harm.
