Millions of people are treated for orthopedic fractures each year in the United States. One of the most common causes of broken bones is trauma, including falls, pedestrian accidents, motor vehicle crashes, and bicycle accidents. Many people who suffer broken bones or fractures only require a light cast or a splint to hold the bone in place while it heals. In a couple of months, the bone has healed, and the cast or splint is no longer required. In these cases, a victim may not require the assistance of a Dallas orthopedic fractures attorney if the insurance company for the at-fault party pays all medical bills, reimburses all lost wages, and offers a fair amount for pain and suffering damages.
However, some victims are not as fortunate. Many orthopedic fractures cause chronic pain, long-term impairment, and months of painful surgeries and physical therapy. The financial, emotional, and physical harm caused by a careless driver or negligent property owner can be significant. In these cases, an accident victim should definitely seek the advice of an experienced Texas orthopedic fractures attorney. Call 214-290-8001 for your free consultation with an attorney.
