Common Personal Injury Accidents that Lead to Broken Bones

Several common types of personal injury accidents may lead to broken bones. The attorneys at Oresky & Associates, PLLC will investigate your accident to prove the cause of your broken bones. Often, broken bone cases arise because of accidents like: 

  • Car accidents: If a drunk, distracted, or aggressive driver crashes into you, you and any passengers in your car might have suffered broken bones. 
  • Construction accidents: Many risks on construction sites can cause broken bone injuries. Slip and falls, collapses, falls from heights, falling objects, and faulty equipment can all cause broken bones. 
  • Slip and fall accidents: When you're visiting another party's property, they have an obligation to reasonably maintain their property. Hazards like wet floors, uneven surfaces, and poor lighting can cause a slip and fall, leading to broken bones. 
  • Commercial truck accidents: Large trucks can cause broken bone accidents, especially if the driver is fatigued, distracted, or forced to meet strict time deadlines. 
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect: If your loved one was living in a nursing home and suffered a broken bone, our team will determine if abuse or neglect led to their injury. 

Regardless of the type of accident that led to your broken bone, our personal injury attorneys will fight for the settlement you need.

Typical Symptoms of a Broken Bone

According to Penn Medicine, broken bones happen when the bone endures more pressure than it can tolerate. Some of the symptoms of a broken bone include: 

  • Severe pain, limiting your ability to move the injured area. For example, if your leg is broken, you might feel pain so intense that you're unable to walk. 
  • Numbness in and around the injured bone. 
  • A misshapen limb or joint. You might also notice a limb or joint being visibly moved out of the correct position. 
  • Swelling or bruising, which may occur at and around the site of injury. 
  • Broken skin, causing the broken bone to visibly protrude. 

Some accident victims even hear or feel a snap or popping noise as the bone is breaking. 

If you broke a bone, you might also feel sick, nauseous, or cold and sweaty. In cases of minor breaks, you might not even notice your bone is broken at all. It's best to see a doctor right after an accident to ensure your injury doesn't get worse.

Typical Symptoms of a Fractured Bone

The phrases "broken bone" and "fractured bone" refer to the same type of injury. Whether your doctor calls your injury a broken bone or fractured bone, you're likely feeling symptoms such as intense pain, difficulty moving, swelling, and numbness. Accident victims often confuse broken bones and fractured bones for different types of injuries, because there are several types of bone fractures. Your doctor will generally diagnose your fracture based on either its pattern, cause, or location. 

Some of the common types of bone fractures include: 

  • Open and closed fractures
  • Transverse fractures
  • Segmental fractures 
  • Displaced and non-displaced fractures
  • Compound fractures 

How Fast Do the Broken Bones Heal?

Depending on the severity of your injury, you may be recovering from a broken bone for about six to eight weeks. However, if you suffered multiple broken bones, or need to undergo multiple surgeries to treat your injury, you might be dealing with an extended recovery period. Some other factors that might affect the length of your recovery time include whether: 

  • You're healing in a splint or cast 
  • You need physical therapy 
  • You develop other complications, such as an infection 
  • You broke several bones 

You should visit a doctor immediately after your accident. They will begin treating you as soon as possible to help you achieve the shortest possible recovery time.

Possible Consequences of Broken & Fractured Bones

There are many financial, physical, and mental consequences you might face if you suffer a broken bone. For example: 

  • You might be dealing with financial stress because of a bone injury. Treating severe injuries can quickly become expensive, and the cost of surgeries, prescription medication, and doctor's appointments may continue adding to your financial strain. 
  • You're likely in physical pain. After breaking a bone, you'll probably have to undergo painful treatments to ensure your bone is back in the proper position. Your doctor can prescribe medications to help you deal with the pain until it subsides. 
  • You might suffer mentally because of a broken bone. When you break a bone, you might need to spend some time away from work or your favorite hobbies. This can cause mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. 

Some accident victims also deal with health complications such as bone infections, permanent deformities, or issues with their joints. Our broken bone injury lawyers in New York City can help you demand compensation for the mental, physical, and financial losses you suffered because of your accident.

Why Should I Hire a New York City Broken Bone Injury Attorney?

You should hire a New York City broken bone injury attorney from Oresky & Associates, PLLC because we can help you fight for the justice and compensation you deserve. If another party caused you to suffer an injury, you should not have to pay for medical treatment and other financial consequences. If you hire our legal team to manage your personal injury claim, we will: 

  • Communicate with all other parties involved in your case. You won't need to speak with insurance adjusters or the liable party's legal team. We handle all communication on your behalf.  
  • Negotiate with the insurance company to ensure you recover a just settlement. Often, insurance companies will try to offer you a settlement that is lower than you deserve. Our team won't stand for this, and we'll aggressively negotiate to secure the money you need. 
  • Investigate the details of your case. You can count on us to investigate your case,  speak to witnesses, and even hire expert witnesses to substantiate your claim.
  • Gather evidence to prove you deserve fair compensation. Our firm will gather all the evidence we can to prove your case. We reference surveillance camera footage, medical records, and more to prove your right to a fair settlement. 
  • Prepare your case for trial, if necessary. Not all personal injury cases need to go to trial, but we will not hesitate to take the liable party to court if that's what it takes to achieve a fair case outcome.  
  • Determine which party or parties owe you compensation. In a broken bones case, we may find that more than one party shares fault for your injury. 

Our firm has been helping injured clients since 1992. We put our years of experience to work to help you pursue justice.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Broken Bone Personal Injury Lawsuit?

If you or someone you love suffered one or multiple broken bones, our personal injury law firm will demand compensation for the full range of your damages. Some of the types of damages you may be entitled to in your case include: 

  • Medical expenses, including past and future costs. This includes doctor's visits, emergency medical treatment, hospital stays, surgery, prescription medications, and rehabilitation costs. 
  • Property damage. For example, if your broken bone occurred in a car accident, you may recover compensation for the cost of your vehicle damage. 
  • Lost income. Many injury victims are unable to work because of their injury and recovery period. We will seek compensation for the paychecks you missed out on. 
  • Reduced earning capacity. If your injury will prevent you from returning to the same job you once had, you might be making less money now. We'll seek a payout for your reduced ability to earn a living. 
  • Mental anguish. Many accident victims suffer from accident-related anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. We can help you pursue a settlement for the cost of treating any emotional distress caused by the accident. 
  • Pain and suffering. Your broken bones are likely causing severe physical pain. We can recover compensation for the pain and suffering you endured and may endure in the future.

What If I Was Partially at Fault for My Broken Bone Accident?

You can still pursue compensation if you were partially at fault for your broken bone accident. 

Oresky & Associates, PLLC will work diligently to prove the at-fault party's accountability. We don't want you paying for the aftermath of an accident you didn't cause.

Statute of Limitations for NYC Broken Bones Lawsuit

You have a limited timeframe to file a NYC broken bones lawsuit. According to the statute of limitations, CPLR 214(4), you have three years to submit a personal injury lawsuit. If the accident led to a fatality, you must file a wrongful death lawsuit within two years, according to EPTL 5-4.1. There are shorter time frames for statute of limitations for governmental entities such as municipalities which require the filing of a notice of claim within 90 days, and the commencement of suit within 1 year and 90 days. Call us immediately so that we may answer any questions about your case.  

Failing to file your case on time could result in its dismissal, meaning you won't be able to recover compensation. We encourage you to bring your case to our team as soon as possible to avoid losing the settlement you need.
