While some bone breaks or fractures heal quickly and properly, others occasionally don’t heal correctly which can result in long-term impairment and discomfort. If you have sustained a broken or fractured bone due to the negligent, careless actions of another party, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your catastrophic injuries.
Common symptoms include:
- Intense pain
- Numbness and tingling
- Swelling or bruising
- Visibly misshapen or out-of-place limb or joint
- Broken skin with protruding bone
- Limited mobility or inability to move a limb

Common complications from broken bones include:
- Crushed joints
- Malunions or improperly set bones
- Delayed or non-unions of bone
- Bone infections or abscesses
