Chicago Broken Bone Accident Lawyers

Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers For People With Fractures From Accidents

Fractures / Broken Bones When extreme stress is put upon our bodies in an accident, the forces may result in the bone giving way in the form of a fracture or break. Although one person’s bones may be more susceptible to fractures due to diminished bone density or age, that is irrelevant under the law. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers appreciates the impact a fracture can have on an individual in terms of the immediate pain and residual disability. Our Chicago law office regularly represents people who have sustained broken bones in the following types of cases: automobile accidents, falls, nursing home abuse, bicycle crashes, motorcycle crashes and other work-related incidents.

Condition of the injured party at the time of the incident is irrelevant when making a recovery for an fracture sustained in an accident under Illinois law

Put another way, if a fracture is due to the negligence of another party, the injured person is entitled to recover for the resulting medical expenses, pain and disability — both sustained in the past and likely required in the future. As long as there is sufficient medical testimony to establish the causation aspect of a fracture, a person or entity responsible for causing the accident may be held legally responsible for the ensuing damages.

Elderly at risk for serious fractures- even minor trauma

The severity of the fracture is usually dependent upon both the mechanism of the injury and the physical condition of the person. As we age, our bones become thinner and more brittle. Even a ‘minor’ accident can have a horrific impact on an elderly person due the magnitude of the fracture. The elderly are particularly at risk for developing complex fractures due to accidents and falls that may require surgery to stabilize the fracture with hardware (known as open reduction, internal fixation ORIF) and extended rehabilitation.

Special considerations for children with fractures

Children are also at risk for sustaining fractures due to falls and trauma. While fractures of younger children’s bones are more likely to heal faster than an older person’s, doctors must evaluate every child-related fracture to determine if the fracture involves the growth plate. When the fracture does involve the growth plate, doctors may need to monitor the child for several years to ensure that there is no impact on the growing process.

    Client Reviews
    • Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
    • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
    • This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you.
    • Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan!
    • Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial.
