Long Island Fractures Attorneys
You Can Seek Compensation for Broken Bones
A broken bone is not always a catastrophic injury, but it can cause temporary or partial disability. If you cannot return to work during or after your recovery, you will need compensation for lost wages. Your medical bills may be considerable and include hospital stays, surgeries, doctor visits, rehabilitation and medical equipment.
If you have a broken bone, you may find that you are unable to do your job or perform basic daily tasks such as dressing or feeding yourself. A family member may need to stay home to care for you while you recover. We can seek compensation to cover this lost income as well as medical expenses and pain and suffering.

Fractures Can Cause Debilitating Complications
Our experienced personal injury attorneys represent people who have suffered all types of broken bones, including the:
- Arm, wrist or hand
- Femur (thigh bone)
- Tibia and fibula in the lower leg
A fracture may require surgical remedies such as plates and screws, external fixation or a rod placed in the bone. Casts and weeks of rehabilitation can add to a patient’s pain and disability. Broken bones can take a minimum of four to six months to heal. In the most catastrophic cases, amputation of the limb may be required.
Depending on the type of fracture and the age and health of the patient, it is possible that a broken bone will not heal completely. In some instances, patients do not recover full use of a fractured limb, hand or fingers. Many elderly patients who break a hip never recover their mobility and approximately 20 percent later die from related complications.
