Albuquerque Broken Bones Lawyer
Broken bones are serious and painful injuries but the medical bills may not reflect that if only a cast was needed. This may lead the insurance company to low ball or try to pay as little as possible on your claim. If your broken bones were caused by someone else’s fault, you need the help of an Albuquerque broken bones lawyer with over 18 years’ experience representing New Mexicans with broken bones.
Fractures to one or multiple bones in the body are often the result of preventable incidents, such as car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, construction accidents, motorcycle accidents, workplace accidents and defective products. I am honored to have been rated by other attorneys in New Mexico as well as judges to have the highest legal ability and highest ethical standards through an AV rating by Martindale Hubbell.
Types Of Bone Fractures
While there are many different types of breaks, there are four main categories of fractures. A displaced fracture occurs when the bone cracks into two or more pieces and is moved so that the ends of the pieces do not line up correctly. A nondisplaced fracture occurs when the bone breaks through completely or partially but does not move out of proper alignment. An open fracture occurs when the bone breaks through the skin. A closed fracture occurs when the bone breaks but does not puncture the skin.
There are many different types of breaks that can be sustained by the bones, including:
- Simple fracture — a single break in the bone
- Comminuted fracture — at least two breaks in the bone that leave it in three or more pieces
- Impacted fracture — the end of one bone fragment is forcibly driven into another fragment
- Greenstick fracture — an incomplete break in which the bone is bent; most commonly sustained by children
- Stress fracture — a crack that does not go all the way through the bone and is caused by repeated stress to the area
