Broken Bones Lawyer
People can suffer broken bones in a variety of accidents, from slips and falls to car accidents. Although common, these injuries typically still require emergency medical care, and the lengthy recovery process can take both a physical and financial toll on an injured individual. However, if someone else was at fault for the accident that caused the fracture, this person may also be obligated to compensate the victim for medical bills and lost wages. At Patino Law Firm, we help accident victims in McAllen and San Antonio learn more about seeking financial compensation for their broken bones and other injuries.
The Consequences of Broken Bones
Beyond the immediate pain and discomfort of a broken bone, these injuries can affect a person’s life in multiple ways until the fracture is fully healed. This is especially true when children are the victims. Some of the common concerns associated with broken bones include the following:
- Inability to complete work-related tasks
- Inability to participate in hobbies
- Inability to exercise
- Loss of strength or flexibility in the affected area, which may be a long-term concern due to possible muscle atrophy
- Inability to drive safely with certain types of fractures
- Increased medical risks due to the fracture itself, such as increased threat of infections
If a person suffers this type of injury because of someone else’s negligence, such as in cases of drunk driving accidents or property owner negligence, the individual may be able to take legal action against the person or party at fault.
