Macon County Broken Bones Lawyer

Quincy fracture injury lawyer for broken arms, legs, ribs, hips

Attorneys for Fractures and Bone Injuries in Decatur, Springfield, Bloomington, and Champaign

Everyone who has experienced a broken bone knows how painful these injuries can be and how long they can take to heal. In many cases, bone fractures can affect a person's ability to perform work and complete daily tasks, and these injuries can sometimes even lead to permanent disability. Since a person's income and overall well-being can be affected, those who experience broken bones and other catastrophic injuries will want to work with an attorney who can help them understand their options for receiving payments that address the harm they have suffered.

At Kanoski Bresney, our lawyers have more than 40 years of experience representing clients in a wide variety of different types of personal injury cases. We regularly work with medical experts to gain a full understanding of the ways victims have been affected by their injuries, and we are prepared to take on large insurance companies to ensure that our clients are repaid for their damages. With over $400 million recovered on behalf of injury victims, we can help you make sure your family is made whole.

Broken Bone Injuries and Complications

Injury victims can suffer fractures in many different situations, including car accidents, slip-and-falls, and workplace accidents at farms or construction sites. The severity of a fracture can vary, ranging from a "clean break" to situations where bones may be crushed or shattered or compound fractures in which a bone breaks through the skin.

Even when a fracture is relatively minor, it can take months to heal, and a victim will typically need to wear a cast that will provide protection during this recovery period. Depending on the location of the fracture, a person's mobility may be affected, and they may be unable to return to work while recovering. Fractures to the femur bone in the thigh or the tibia or fibula in the lower leg may require a full leg cast that affects a person's ability to walk. Broken bones in the upper arm or forearm may limit movement in the arms and hands, affecting a person's ability to write, type, or complete tasks that require fine motor movements.

In more serious cases, fractures may require surgery to repair, and rods, pins, screws, or plates may need to be used to secure bones in a position where they can heal properly. Fractures that affect joints such as the elbows, wrists, or knees or the bones in the hands can be especially painful, and they may only partially heal. In these cases, a person may never recover the range of motion and abilities they had before the injury.

Other types of fractures can also affect a person's health. Broken ribs can affect a person's ability to breathe, and they may make it impossible for a victim to perform physical labor or other activities. Broken hips, which often affect seniors and can occur due to falls in nursing homes, can cause a victim to become bedridden or unable to care for themselves and provide for their own needs.

The costs related to a fracture are often significant. These include expenses related to the medical care performed following an injury, as well as physical therapy to help a victim return to their normal functions as they heal. A person may lose income if they are unable to return to work or if they have to reduce their work hours while recovering, and an injury may lead to a permanent disability that affects the victim's ability to earn income throughout the rest of their life. Assistive devices such as wheelchairs, crutches, or canes may be needed, and a person may also need to make modifications to their home or vehicle to address their mobility issues. On top of all of this, victims can experience significant pain and emotional trauma.
