Understanding Fracture Types
Multiple types of fractures are possible after an accident, according to the Cleveland Clinic. These include:
- Closed: where the ends of the bone are broken but are not displaced, and the skin is not broken.
- Displaced: where the ends of the bone have a gap between them, meaning the victim may need surgery to repair the break properly.
- Open: where the ends of the bone are displaced, and at least one end of the break goes through the skin, opening the body up to possible infection.
- Stress: where the bone has a crack rather than a break all the way through the bone, but it still can remain extremely painful and debilitating.
Even a closed fracture or a stress fracture can lead to significant pain and loss of work time.

Pursuing Compensation for Bone Injuries
You have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries caused by another driver’s negligence. If you had to miss work, or if you have received significant medical bills after suffering broken bones in an accident that was not your fault, these damages may be recoverable in your case.
You may find that the insurance company representing the party that caused your injuries will contact you with a settlement amount soon after the accident. If you do not believe this amount truly compensates you for your injuries, you can reject it and attempt to receive a greater amount.
When you work with Bader Scott Injury Lawyers on your case, we can negotiate with insurance parties on your behalf. We can also investigate your case and gather evidence of the value of your damages.

Liability for a Car Accident Case
One of the ways a South Fulton broken bones and fractures lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can help you is by determining which party or parties are responsible for your injuries. If law enforcement officers investigating the accident do not assign blame in the accident report, we may be able to identify the liable party by investigating your case. This may include:
A Motor Vehicle Driver
If another driver’s negligence caused your accident, they may be liable for your damages. The other driver could be found in violation of Georgia’s driving laws or could have been operating the vehicle in an unsafe manner for the weather or road conditions to show negligent behavior.
If your accident was caused by a professional driver working for a delivery company, a shipping service, or some other commercial entity, your lawsuit may go against their employer.
A Mechanic or Parts Manufacturer
It is also possible for an accident to be caused by a mechanical failure to a system such as the brakes or steering due to the work of a negligent mechanic. In this case, the mechanic may be liable for your damages. If a defective product caused your accident—such as a tire blowout—you may have a viable case against the product manufacturer.
Municipalities and their service crews are responsible for maintaining safe roads. If your accident was caused because of a road hazard, signage error, or some other negligent action of a municipality, your lawsuit may go against the responsible city, county, or state government agency. Keep in mind that personal injury lawsuits against the government in Georgia may have much earlier deadlines than the general two-year statute of limitations allowed by O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33.
To learn more about the specific deadlines in your case, call Bader Scott Injury Lawyers today. We can help you pursue compensation from any party liable for your injuries, be it an individual, a corporation, or the government.
