Fractures and Internal Injuries

Bone fractures and damage to internal organs are major injuries which require immediate medical attention. If they are caused by a fall or assault, or some other wrongful act, damages can be recovered from the responsible person. Fractures to the neck, spinal column or those requiring surgery to repair are the most serious and can have a permanent impact on your life. The same is true of any damage to an internal organ that affects the organ's ability to function normally. Recovery from such injuries is a long process and may require physical therapy or assistive devices. Such injuries may entitle you to compensation for lost wages, loss of future earning potential, pain and suffering and the cost of future medical care you may need. If you have suffered a fracture from a car accident or someone else's negligence, your first priority is to get the best medical treatment possible. Your next step should be to get qualified legal advice.
