Nashville Bone Fracture Attorney
Bone Fracture Injuries
A strong impact to almost any part of the body can produce a bone fracture. At the Miller Law offices in Nashville, we serve clients who have suffered from a variety of different fractures caused by another person’s negligence, often in a car-related accident, premises accident, or construction accident. Nearly all broken bones cause pain, and most result in some degree of disability, at least for a time. The length of down time from a fracture depends on which bone breaks, the severity of the break, and the age and overall health of the victim.
Some fractures heal completely within weeks or months, while others take more than a year. In the elderly, certain fractures may never heal properly. Some minor non-displaced fractures are little more than a nuisance in an otherwise healthy person, but open fractures, comminuted fractures, skull fractures, fractures of the hip or pelvis, or fractured vertebrae can be extremely serious and even fatal. A broken bone is more serious if it damages surrounding nerves and soft tissue or allows the introduction of microbes that cause infection. Blood clots are another possible complication. Displaced and comminuted fractures usually require surgery to align and secure the bone fragments.
Careless driving, negligent property maintenance, or failure to institute or follow safety procedures at a worksite are responsible for many of the fractures that we see in the Miller law offices. In these cases, we help the victim to make a claim against the person, business, or government entity, whose act or oversight caused the accident, to recover money to compensate for damages from the injury.
The Fractures We See Most Often
These are some common types of preventable fractures from negligence-related accidents:
- Collarbone fractures
- Broken arms
- Ankle fractures
- Broken feet and toes
- Hand and finger bone fractures
- Broken legs: fractures of the femur, tibia, fibula, or patella
- Broken noses
- Mandibular fractures (broken jaws)
Broken bones cause you to miss work and limit your activities for weeks or months at a time. Even after the bone heals, you usually need a round of physical therapy to get your full function back. Fractures hurt, keep you from doing the things you enjoy, cause high medical bills, and are an inconvenience at best. Worse, you may develop complications or need surgery, either of which will likely have a negative impact on your health and well-being. When you’ve broken a bone through no fault of your own, the lawyers at the Law Office of Phillip Miller in Nashville are here to help.
