Orlando Broken Bone Attorneys
A broken bone is painful and can take months to heal. A major auto accident or other traumatic incident can cause multiple fractures at once, incapacitating the victim for a long time. Pain medications can make you drowsy enough that driving and other necessary activities are out of the question. Casts are cumbersome and make many daily activities difficult, or impossible, without help from friends or family. Sometimes surgery is required to implant screws, plates, wires or nails that help align the bone pieces so that they heal correctly. Even after a bone fracture heals, you may face a long period of physical therapy to treat the muscles that deteriorated while not in use.
If a slip and fall, car accident or other accident left you with broken bones through no fault of your own, you need to find out whether you are eligible for financial compensation. Hospital stays, surgery, physical therapy and pain medication are expensive. You should not have to wipe out your bank account or ruin your credit to get well. A skilled personal injury lawyer will navigate the confusing and intimidating process of recovering appropriate damages. In Central Florida, the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. will fight for you.
Any of the bones in your legs can be broken if enough force is applied. The thighbone (femur) is one of the strongest bones in the body, and it takes a significant trauma to cause a femur fracture. A fractured tibia, knee or ankle, or a combination of these, is common in major auto accidents.
A violent assault can easily break your nose, jaw or cheekbone. Facial fractures can lead to deformity or functional difficulties such as teeth that do not align properly or ongoing sinus problems.
A broken spine is among the most dangerous injuries because it puts the delicate spinal cord in jeopardy. Treatment for a spinal cord injury can be intense, requiring traction to align vertebrae, surgery and prolonged use of a brace.
Because we put our hands out to catch ourselves from a fall or to brace ourselves during a crash, many broken bones occur in the arms. Broken wrists happen often in sporting accidents. A broken forearm may involve the ulna, radius or both. Fractures above the elbow to the humerus are common as well.
