Overview of Broken Bones Injuries
A New York broken bone lawyer can often help a victim gain compensation. Few injuries occur as frequently, and in nearly every type of accident as bone fractures, or broken bones. From vehicle accidents to falls to explosions and dog bites, painful breaks pervade the spectrum.
As common as they are, broken bone injuries can be debilitating. A victim can be left unable to work, drive, or engage in the other routine activities. In a workplace, other employees may have to take on an extra load to compensate for a long-term absence. At home, children may have no one to drive them to school.
Some broken bone injuries occur because of diseases that weaken them. Osteoporosis deteriorates minerals and proteins in bones, causing them to become brittle and more susceptible to breaks. This does not mean, however, that a victim of, say, a bicycle accident who suffers a broken bone will be unable to win a claim. The disease may deteriorate the bone, but the accident broke it. More often, however, otherwise healthy bones are damaged or broken when an accident occurs.
