Illinois Falls and Fractures Lawyer

Orland Park Personal Injury Attorney

You can sustain a fracture in almost any kind of accident. When you get a fracture, it may not be healed by simply having a cast placed on the area with the fracture and letting it heal. Fractures can often lead to permanent and irreparable injury. There are many factors which can determine how serious and long-lasting fractures and their effects will last – the severity of the initial fracture, how quick you seek out medical attention for the fracture, the quality of the medical care received and how well the fracture heals.

If you have been injured in an accident and suffered a fracture, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, the medical care associated with your fracture and other injuries and any rehabilitative care which may be required to return you to your normal life style after your fracture has healed.

I have been working with clients that have sustained fractures in accidents for over 30 years, and I have the expertise and resources necessary to make sure that you get the care and compensation to which you are entitled after you have been the victim of an accident in which you suffered a fracture. I work with the best medical professionals to both get you the treatment you need for a fracture you are currently suffering and to help provide you with the best possible representation you can receive so that you get the maximum recovery for your injuries.

The most common types of fractures are:

  • Arm and Leg Fractures: Arm and leg fractures are usually caused by some sort of trauma, such as a car accident, and are often relatively clean and require a cast to immobilize the affected area, allowing the fracture to heal. Some rehabilitative care may be required after the cast is removed to restore full capabilities to the affected area.
  • Rib Fractures: Like arm and leg fractures, rib fractures are most commonly caused by a trauma such as a car accident or fall. However, when a rib is fractured, it can move in such a way inside the body that it can cause punctured organs and internal bleeding. Assuming there are no complications, treatment of broken ribs is generally done by simply reducing exaggerated body movements and allowing the broken rib to heal on its own.
