Types of Bone Fractures 

Your bones are tough, but they can break with enough pressure. There are four general types of bone fractures you may suffer in a car accident or other incident. These include:

  • Simple fractures: Simple fractures occur when there is only one break in the bone. They can cause severe side effects, like internal bleeding or organ punctures, but are typically easier to treat than other types of fractures. 
    • Comminuted fractures: Comminuted fractures happen when there are at least two breaks in the bone. Depending on the location of the fractures, these types of injuries may be treated with a cast or other stabilizer. But often, surgery is required to completely treat the injury.
    • Impacted fractures: Impacted, or buckled, fractures occur when one piece of broken bone impacts the other, which can create fragments. These injuries can be incredibly difficult to treat since fragments can travel through the body. In rare instances, amputation may be necessary.
  • Open fractures: Any of the above types of fractures can also be open, or compound, fractures. These occur when the bone pierces the skin. These types of breaks are especially dangerous because that open wound makes the infection much more likely to occur. 

How to Seek Compensation for Bone Fractures in Long Island

Your path for seeking compensation after you’ve suffered a severe bone fracture or largely depends on what caused the injury. The most common cause of these types of injuries in New York is car accidents. However, recovering compensation after a car accident can be difficult under New York state law. 

New York, along with a handful of other states, requires all drivers to carry no-fault insurance. This is intended to make it easy to get medical attention without fearing the cost of it, no matter who was at fault for the accident. 

No-fault claims cover:

  • Medical expenses, including physical therapy and psychiatric counseling
  • Lost wages up to $2,000 a month for no more than 3 years, though more may be available if purchased
  • Out-of-pocket expenses up to $25 a day for up to a year

If your expenses continue mounting and exceed $50,000, you may be able to hold the at-fault driver accountable for the excess costs. These are considered basic economic losses. You can also hold the at-fault driver accountable for noneconomic losses if you suffered a “serious injury.”

Bone fractures are considered “serious injuries” under New York law. Other “serious injuries” include:

  • Death
  • Dismemberment
  • Loss of a fetus
  • Significant disfigurement
  • Loss of use or permanent limited use of a body function, organ, member or system
  • Significant disability for at least 90 days

Even though bone fractures are considered a serious injury, it can be difficult to recover compensation in some cases. That’s why it’s important to work with a Long Island bone fracture lawyer as soon as possible.

In cases that don’t involve a car wreck, seeking compensation is much simpler. You simply must show that the at-fault party injured you negligently. 

Proving Negligence

In order to prove negligence, you must be able to show the at-fault party acted in a way that a reasonable person wouldn’t in the same situation. You must prove four elements of negligence, which include:

  • A duty of care that was established, whether that means drivers who are supposed to follow the rules of the road or a business owner who is supposed to eliminate any potential hazards in their store
  • A breach of duty of care, which means the person should have reasonably foreseen how their actions could lead to an injury but didn’t do anything to stop it
  • Injuries caused by the breach of duty of care, such as a broken arm that resulted directly from another driver T-boning your car
  • Real compensable damages, such as lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and more
