Broken Bones from a Semi Truck Accident
An Aggressive Attorney to Protect Rights of Truck Accident Victims
Orthopedic injuries relate to the bones and the connective tissue that connects muscle to bones, such as tendons and ligaments. Our truck accident attorneys have experience with the medical details of such cases. We will keep fighting for you.
Bones can break in different ways. A complete fracture is one in which the bone breaks into two or more pieces. An incomplete fracture is one in which the bone is cracked, but not broken all the way through. There are also simple fractures, in which a bone breaks without damaging surrounding tissue. And there are compound fractures, in which the bone breaks through the skin. All types of bone fractures need medical treatment and can limit your mobility for weeks or months.
Some orthopedic injuries present life-threatening situations, such as those related to the spinal cord, leading to partial paralysis. A broken rib can puncture a lung, causing breathing difficulties. A skull fracture could cause brain damage. Other orthopedic injuries may only affect a single finger on one hand. Yet even that can prevent a person from performing a job to support a family.
