      A broken leg is a serious and dangerous injury. Depending on the severity of the fracture, you may require a cast, surgery, or the placement of pins and plates to realign the bones. If another person’s negligence caused the injury, you deserve compensation.

      What to Do If You Suffer a Broken Leg in an Accident

      After an accident, you may be unsure of what to do next. Suffering a broken leg can be unbearable; you may be unable to walk and unable to return to work for an extended period of time. Because a broken leg is a debilitating condition, you should always consult with an attorney if the injury was caused by another person’s negligence or wrongdoing.

      The leg is made up of strong, critical bones. Nearly every break in the upper part of the leg requires surgery and can result in serious complications. If you are in an accident that results in a broken leg, you should consider pursuing compensation to cover your medical expenses and other losses.

      Common Causes of Broken Leg Injuries

      The femur (thighbone) is the strongest bone in the body. It takes great force to cause a fracture or complete break in the femur. Unsurprisingly, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of femur fractures.

      • Pedestrian accidents
      • Motorcycle accidents
      • Slip and fall accidents
      • Bus Accidents
      • Construction accidents
      • Truck accidents
      • Workplace accidents
      • Sports accidents

      A broken leg can directly affect your quality of life, immobilizing you and robbing you of your independence. At Denlea & Carton, our White Plains broken leg attorneys know how costly this kind of injury is and will fight to get you the money you need to fully recover.

      Types of Broken Leg Injuries

      The leg consists of three bones: the femur, tibia, and fibula. A fracture to any of these bones can make it challenging to perform everyday activities. Fractures, however, can range in severity depending on how the bone broke and whether it shattered upon impact.

      As described by the Cleveland Clinic, fractures fall into one of the following categories:

      • Closed fracture – the break does not pierce the skin;
      • Open fracture – also known as a compound fracture, when the break opens the skin;
      • Displaced fracture – causes a gap to form where the bone breaks;
      • Partial fracture – the break is incomplete, and part of the bone remains intact; or
      • Stress fracture – often described as a crack in the bone.

      A fracture may be further described based on how the bone broke, for instance, whether the break was diagonal across the bone (oblique), a straight line (transverse), or shattered (comminuted).

      Regardless of the type of broken leg that you suffered, you should always seek emergency medical treatment. Breaks in the tibia and fibula may be more difficult to detect, but any pain or discomfort should be treated as soon as possible to prevent further injury.

      Recovery from a broken leg injury can take months or even years. In some cases, a person may lose some of the function of their extremity or become immobile as a result of the injury. With a leg injury, it is almost guaranteed that you will be unable to work for an extended period of time. You should never have to pay out of pocket for someone else’s wrongdoing.

      If another person caused your broken leg injury, you might be entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. A claim for damages can help you receive money for your current medical bills and future treatment.

      Holding the person responsible for your injuries legally liable helps to ensure that you receive the best care possible after unimaginable harm.

      Obtaining Compensation After a Leg Fracture

      Whether you were injured in a car accident, hit by a negligent driver while riding your bike, or injured at work, our White Plains broken leg attorneys can help. We know the devastation that a fractured leg can cause and will work hard to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome in your case.

      Because a broken leg may make it difficult for you to continue working, you might be eligible for additional compensation to cover your lost wages and loss of future earning capacity. It is important to note that you only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages, so you need to act quickly to determine whether you should pursue compensation.

      Hi Mr.John LeifertI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for your services. My car accident, I was incredibly stressed the full dealing with insurance companies and sorting out what was my next step towards my injuries. Especially since it was my first time involved in any type of traffic accident, I was so lost and confused!Luckily I discovered your service at the perfect timing. You were able to make sense of the multiple demand letter requests, photo evidence, and medical documents that kept my case in track. You always make sure to follow up with me. I'm so happy we were able to receive a successful outcome. Good luck to you and your associates and thank you again.Miguel Perez

      When I needed to take on a leading US automaker, I turned to the White Plains law firm of Denlea & Carton and their commercial litigation team. They filed an action in Federal Court and after three years of hard fought litigation, they helped me to obtain a great result ! Not only for myself, but for consumers around the country. Jeff, Jim and everyone at the firm were superb. They communicated with me regularly, and ensured that I understood everything that was happening. I couldn’t be happier about my representation. If you need a firm that gets great results, and isn’t afraid to go up against large corporations, look no further than Denlea & Carton!

      I researched quite a few firms before deciding on Denlea & Carton, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. They surpassed my expectations in every respect. They were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. They treated my case as if it was their own, and never backed down from the fight with the defendant until they obtained an incredible result for me. There is a difference between law firms, and I’m glad I took the time to realize it. I would recommend Jim and Jeff (and everyone else who helped me) without hesitation. They’re terrific!
