Oklahoma City Broken Bone and Fracture Lawyer

The human skeleton contains 206 bones.  A break in any one of them can cause debilitating pain and impairment.  Depending on factors like which bone is broken and the severity of the break, the victim may need many months to heal, during which he or she must suffer through physical pain, limited function, and financial losses resulting from missed work and medical bills.  Moreover, if the fracture heals improperly, the bone may need to be re-broken and reset.

Fractures can occur for a variety of different reasons, including car accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, and the use of defective products.  However, these common causes of bone fractures all share one trait in common: they are often preventable and caused by negligence.  If you suffered a bone fracture due to another person’s careless acts, you may be entitled to compensation for your surgery bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other hardships.

Car Crashes, Slip and Fall Accidents, and Other Common Causes of Broken Bones

Broken bones rank among the most common injuries, not only in Oklahoma, but throughout the United States.  According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), there are roughly six million annual cases of broken bones in the U.S.  If you were to spread that number evenly over the course of one year, it would mean that approximately 16,438 new fractures occurred every single day: nearly a dozen fractures per minute.

Some of these fractures result from underlying medical conditions, such as pathologic fractures, which are usually caused by infections or cancer.  However, most breaks are caused by physical trauma.  Some examples of common causes of broken bones include:

Physical violence, sports accidents, and falling objects, which are common hazards at construction sites, are also common causes of fractures.

This information is significant for injury victims because these types of accidents often involve an element of liability, or fault.  When somebody fails to take adequate precautions against the risk of injury – for instance, failing to follow traffic laws, or failing to comply with worksite safety regulations – that person may be liable for any accidents which result.  Our attorneys will make every effort to prove that the other party was at fault for your broken bone injury, a process which often involves consulting with medical experts, obtaining medical records, sending evidence away for analysis, and interviewing eyewitnesses to the accident.

What Are the Different Types of Bone Fractures?

There are several different kinds of fractures, some of which are more common in certain age groups or types of bones.  Buckled fractures, for instance, tend to occur in children in the bones of the arm (humerus, radius, and ulna).
