Chicago, IL Workers’ Compensation Lawyers for Bone Fractures

Workers performing all types of jobs are at-risk for bone fractures. From slips and falls to vehicle collisions and accidents involving heavy machinery, if you suffered a broken bone at work, Malman Law can help you seek maximum compensation for your injury.

Broken bones are among the most common work-related injuries. All types of accidents can lead to fractures, and our bones simply aren’t made to withstand the forces of a fall, impact, or crushing collision. If you suffered a broken bone at work, you may be entitled to compensation under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. At Malman Law, we can help make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.

In Illinois, most employers are required by law to provide workers’ compensation benefits to their injured employees. This includes employees who suffer broken bones working on construction sites, in vehicle collisions, in factories and warehouses, and all other types of scenarios. Regardless of what happened – and regardless of whether it was your employer’s fault – you could be entitled to significant financial benefits for your injury.

Common Types of Bone Fractures

Generally speaking, a “bone fracture” is any injury that involves a crack or break in any of the bones in your body. Most fractures can be classified into four categories:

  • Displaced Fracture – A displaced fracture occurs when the bone breaks into two or more parts that move so that they are no longer aligned.
  • NonDisplaced Fracture – With a non-displaced fracture, the bone cracks (or may even break completely) but does not move out of alignment.
  • Closed Fracture – With a closed fracture, no part of the bone pierces the skin. Closed fractures can be both displaced and nondisplaced.
  • Open (or “Compound”) Fracture – In an open fracture, the bone pierces the skin (though often only temporarily). A displaced, open fracture is one of the worst types of breaks – not only because of the severity of the fracture, but also due to the risk of deep bone infection as a result of the open wound.

Bone fractures are also described by various sub-classifications, including:

  • Comminuted fractures (the bone breaks or splinters into multiple pieces)
  • Impacted fractures (the ends of two bones are pushed into one another; also known as a “buckle” fracture)
  • Hairline fractures (the bone cracks but does not break completely)
  • Oblique fractures (the bone breaks “with the grain”)
  • Pathologic fractures (a fracture resulting from weakness caused by a bone disease)
  • Transverse fractures (the bone breaks “against the grain”)

  • Medical Consequences of Broken Bones

    For most people, a broken bone results in severe pain, limited mobility, and missed time from work while the bone heals. Significant fractures can require surgery, particularly in cases where the break also results in ligament, tendon, or nerve damage. But, generally speaking, broken bones are injuries that can heal over time with proper medical care and rehabilitation.

    However, many workers who suffer bone fractures experience long-term effects as well. For example, a spinal cord fracture could lead to a lifetime of limited mobility that prevents you from doing your job. As a result, when seeking compensation for a broken bone at work, it is important to have a complete understanding of the impact that your injury could have on your life for years to come.

    I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.

ALL FIELDS REQUIRED

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
