Claims For Broken Femurs Or Tibias
Leg fractures are possible when a person is hurt in a car crash or slip and fall accident. Being hit by an object can also lead to a bone break. The leg is composed of three different bones; the fibula, femur, and tibia. Wherever a bone break is sustained, swelling, tenderness, and pain are possible. Recovery timeframes range depending on the severity of the injury.
The biggest bone in the body is the femur, this is the bone that runs from your knee to your hip. Your lower leg consists of the tibia and the fibula. All three of these bones can break when there is excessive force, such as in a car accident. The kneecap can also be harmed, the patella bone could be fractured.
If you were diagnosed with a leg bone break when you sought medical care following a Maryland collision, talk to a Baltimore personal injury lawyer about compensation options. Whether you were treated by your primary care doctor or within an emergency room or urgent care facility, medical expenses are often part of a person’s damage recovery settlement.
X-Rays, MRIs, and Other Imaging Tools
Often a doctor will use an imaging tool to see inside a person’s body and determine the extent of a leg break injury. Images from an X-Ray, MRI, or CT Scan could be used as information to develop a treatment plan. Some breaks will heal with rest, immobilization, and physical therapy, but more severe breaks could require surgery.
Long, complicated recoveries can also lead to a person missing work. Time off work could be part of your damage recovery, and when you are able to gather the appropriate evidence, the settlement could be achieved solely through insurance negotiations with no need for litigation. Attorneys work to secure the amount you need, whether they are fighting for your rights through negotiation discussions or in a Maryland court of law.
