St. Louis County Personal Injury Lawyers Provide the Legal Guidance You Need to File an Accident Claim for Broken or Fractured Bone Injuries
Bone injuries can be catastrophic injuries that often require extensive and expensive medical care
Suffering from a bone injury is not only extremely painful, but can also result in the need for expensive surgeries and rehabilitation that interferes with your ability to work, earn a living and live your life. When your fractured or broken bone is caused as a result of someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior, you do not have to cover the expenses for your treatment on your own. Even if you are unsure whether or not you are at-fault for your bone injury, contact the Law Office of Kenneth P. Carp to speak with a professional about your case and to determine if you are eligible to receive compensation.
There are several different types of broken bones or fractures that require different levels and extents of medical care or rehabilitation to treat.
Simple fracture – A less serious but painful injury that occurs when a bone receives stress or a hairline injury.
Incomplete fracture – A serious injury in which the bone is broken but still connected.
Complete fracture – A serious injury in which the bone is completely broken in two or more pieces.
Open Fracture – An extremely painful, gruesome injury in which the bone breaks through the skin ad can be seen outside the body.
What type of compensation am I entitled to for a broken bone or fracture caused by someone else’s negligence?
When seeking recovery for your injuries following an accident, the first step is to determine who is at fault for the accident. Because Missouri is an at-fault state, whoever is deemed at fault or negligent in causing the accident is responsible for covering the cost of expenses from any related injuries. If you have received a fracture or broken bone through no fault of your own as the result of an accident or negligence our lawyers offer assistance in filing a claim to recover damages for you.

Motor vehicle accidents – In fact, broken or fractured bones are the single most common serious injuries resulting from car accidents.
Slips and falls – A trip, slip or fall caused by dangerous or improperly maintained property conditions may cause a serious bone fracture for which the owner of the property may be held liable.
