Guelph Broken or Fractured Bones Lawyer


A broken or fractured bone can have consequences far more serious than the inconvenience of wearing a cast for a few months. A serious fracture can have life-altering consequences for months or even years to come.

If you may have suffered a broken bone because of someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to hold that person responsible. A broken or fractured bones lawyer serving Guelph at Preszler Injury Lawyers is here to help. Call a Guelph broken or fractured bones lawyer today at 1-800-JUSTICE for a free, no-risk initial consultation.

COMMON CAUSES OF BROKEN BONES

A number of Guelph accidents can cause broken or fractured bones. They include:

  • Car Accidents: Broken bones are common in accidents because of the force occupants can experience.
  • Commercial Truck Accidents: Because commercial trucks are so much larger and heavier than the average vehicle, broken bones are common.
  • Motorcycle Crashes: Because of the lack of protection, motorcyclists can suffer serious broken bones in crashes.
  • Pedestrian Accidents: Like motorcyclists, pedestrians do not have any protection to guard them against broken bones and other injuries when an accident occurs. Pedestrian accidents often result in serious, even life-threatening injuries.
  • Workplace Accidents: According to the Association of Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada, 951 workplace deaths occurred in 2017 alone. Fractured bones are one of the most common injuries that result from accidents at work.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents: Millions of older people fall every year, causing serious injuries like broken bones or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). 95% of hip fractures are caused by falling. These injuries are serious and can even be life-threatening for older adults.

Most Common Types of Bone Fractures

Bone fractures are a common injury, but they are not always a simple break. There are a number of different types of bone fractures, including:

  • Complete fractures: this is where the bone breaks into two or more parts
  • Compound fractures: this is where the bone breaks through the victim’s skin and creates a significant risk for infection
  • Comminuted fractures: this is where the impact causes such force that the bones are shattered into multiple pieces, requiring screws, pins or plates to support the bone
  • Hairline fractures: this is a small crack in the bone that, while not overly serious, does require medical attention or else the victim risks potentially serious complications
  • Simple fractures: this is where a person’s bone breaks, but there are no wounds to the skin
  • Stable fractures: this is where the ends of the broken pieces of bone are aligned and close together
