We invite you to learn more below about whether hiring our firm makes sense for you, and we look forward to getting you the justice you deserve. 

Consequences of Severe Orthopedic Fractures/Broken Bones

Severe bone fractures and orthopedic injuries are often devastating, and result in permanent disability for our clients. We are first introduced to our clients while they are in the acute recovery phase—often while they are still recuperating at an in-patient rehabilitation facility.

Severe orthopedic injuries almost always require prompt surgery to repair serious and sometimes life-threatening fractures. These serious injuries almost always result in a prolonged period of recovery during which our clients are unable to attend to their activities of daily living, or work. Insurance supplements like No-Fault or Worker’s Compensation are never enough to account for the financial consequences that result from a devastating injury of this sort.

You and your family may be entitled to compensation for :

  • Pain & Suffering
  • Permanent Disability
  • Lost Wages
  • Medical Expenses

Often times worse than the financial consequences, is the pain and suffering that comes with multiple surgeries, and months (and sometimes years) of physical and occupational therapies. These injuries can be catastrophic, and result in long term and permanent disabilities to our clients.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious orthopedic injuries due to the reckless behavior of another person, it is imperative that you contact the legal team at the Porter Law Group so we can investigate your case, and begin the process of holding the responsible parties accountable for the injuries you have suffered.

What are the Most Common Causes of a Fracture/Broken Bones?

Serious fractures and other orthopedic injuries most typically occur in motor vehicle accidents (car, truck, motorcycle, snowmobile, 4-wheeler, etc.), construction site/workplace accidents, and in slip and fall accidents. Many of our clients who come to us have suffered a serious orthopedic injury due to the negligent behavior of another person.

Whether it be distracted or reckless driving, a failure to operate a job site in a safe manner, or a failure to eliminate hazards on a piece of property, the injuries our clients have suffered are typically avoidable and preventable—and it is our job to hold the responsible party accountable.

Types of Fractures/Broken Bones

Our clients come to the Porter Law Group having suffered all different types of fractures. We have extensive expert resources and the experience necessary to help our clients navigate the complex and challenging world of surgical interventions, long-term rehabilitations, and the degree of disability that typically results from catastrophic injuries of this sort.

Our team of investigators and medical experts have the necessary experience to build the strongest possible case against the party responsible for causing your injury, and to enable you and your family to secure the compensation you deserve for all you have been through.  Our medical experts and our legal team have decades of experience building winning litigation strategies for our clients who have suffered the following types of fractures/broken bones:

  • Closed or simple fracture – Smaller breaks that do not break the skin.
  • Open or compound fracture – Breaks that penetrate the skin.
  • Hairline fracture – A narrow crack in a bone.
  • Incomplete fracture – A significant crack that doesn’t completely break the bone.
  • Complete fracture – When the bone breaks into separate pieces.
  • Displaced fracture – When the pieces of the broken bone move out of alignment.
  • Comminuted fracture – When the bone shatters into small pieces.
  • Impacted fracture – A break caused by bones being driven into each other.

Holding the Responsible Party Accountable

When our clients suffer severe orthopedic injuries in an accident, not only are they often left fighting for their lives, they are also left to fight an unknown enemy—the insurance company for the individual who is responsible for the injury our client suffered. 

The insurance industry’s primary job is to prevent you from securing the compensation you and your family deserve for the injury caused by their insured. The lawyers at the Porter Law Group enjoy an impeccable reputation, and years of experience successfully fighting these insurance companies. 

Every one of our clients’ cases are unique—involving specific types of injuries suffered in all different types of accidents. From the moment we meet our clients, we begin the process of preserving key evidence, investigating the scene of the accident, gathering witness statements, and retaining subject-matter industry experts to help us build the strongest possible case for our clients.

And make no mistake, as we do all these things for our clients, the insurance company who represents the person who injured our client is out there doing many of the same things—all designed to prevent you and your family from getting the compensation you deserve.  

It is imperative that the investigative process begin as soon as possible following the accident which caused your injuries. We make the process simple and free for you and your family members. The legal team at the Porter Law Group will work efficiently and effectively to build your case and get you the answers and protection you deserve in your time of greatest need.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Lawsuit?

Once the lawyers at the Porter Law Group  build a case to prove another party’s reckless or negligent behavior caused your injuries, you will then be entitled to recover monetary compensation for the physical and financial losses caused by the injuries you have suffered.
