A break occurs when a strong force or trauma strikes a bone. While some broken bone are relatively easy to fix, others can cause additional injury to nerves, surrounding muscles, blood vessels, organs and skin. When an accident occurs, injured parties are advised to seek medical attention as soon as possible. If you or a loved one has suffered a broken bone in Los Angeles County and the break was the result of another’s action or inaction, you will need the guidance of a professional personal injury lawyer who is experienced in this type of lawsuit. An attorney can help ensure that you are justly compensated for your pain and suffering, bodily injuries and lost time at work.
The most serious complications an accident victim can suffer, as a result of broken bones are:
Osteomyelitis is an infection that can reach bones by travelling through the bloodstream or spreading from nearby tissue. Infections in the fluid and tissue of the joints are usually blood-born staphylococci or streptococci.
Osteonecrosis is a disease caused by reduced blood flow to bones in the joints. With too little blood, the bone starts to die and may break down. Osteonecrosis is most often found in the knees, hips, shoulders and ankles. You may have osteonecrosis in one or more bones.
Oftentimes, a pulmonary embolism is caused by blood clots that travel from the legs or, rarely, other parts of the body (deep vein thrombosis or DVT).
