Bone Fracture Injury Claims

At Littlejohn Barristers in Barrie, we understand that bone fractures are painful and can take weeks, months or even years to heal. In some cases, they can result in life-long complications.

The word fracture is the medical term for a broken bone. Some of the most common types are:
Stable fractures. The broken ends of the bone line up and are barely out of place.
Transverse fractures. The fracture forms a straight line across the bone.
Oblique fractures. The fracture crosses the bone diagonally.
Comminuted fractures. The bone is shattered into three or more pieces.
Greenstick fractures. The bone is bent but not broken all the way through.
Compression fractures. The bone is crushed.
Impacted fractures. The broken ends of the bone are driven together.
If a bone fracture is not treated properly, the injury could lead to serious complications, including damage to blood vessels or nerves and infection in the bone or surrounding tissue.
Treatment for Fractured Bones
Although every injury is different, most bone fractures require a sling, splint, brace or cast to heal properly. In more severe cases, bone fracture repair may require surgery. This involves using surgical screws, pins, rods or plates to hold the bone in place. The recovery process may also involve extensive physical rehabilitation. Fractured bones require a minimum of six to eight weeks to heal. However, a full recovery can take time depending on your overall health, age and the severity of the break.
Accident Benefits for Bone Fracture Injuries
