What Effects Do Fractures Have?

A fracture is the medical term given for what most of us think of as broken bones. Fractures are a common result of serious accidents. These injuries almost always involve extreme pain, swelling and temporary loss of function. They can also involve permanent loss of function, nerve damage, bleeding and deformity.

At Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our lawyers have the experience and dedication to fight for your rights. If your injury was caused by the negligence or misconduct of another, you deserve to be compensated for the harm you have suffered.

We Account For Permanent Damages

Severe fractures do not always heal fully. Compound fractures may develop osteomyelitis, which is an infection that can occur when bacteria enters the fracture. Along with infection, fractures may lead to nerve damage, injury to neighboring blood vessels, osteoarthritis and other problems that can lead to permanent impairment. These injuries are complex so it is important to choose an attorney with the skill to get all the compensation you deserve to deal with your situation.

Our firm handles a wide range of serious personal injury cases. We will work with you to develop a litigation plan designed to get you compensation for past and future medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other costs associated with your injury.
