Dog Bite Accident: Broken Bone Injury

Broken Bones are a Common Consequence of Dog Bites

Since the inception of our firm back in 1994 we have been representing victims of broken bones caused by dog attacks. Unfortunately, due to the violent nature of dog attacks, broken bones are a common result. If you or someone you love has suffered bone fractures due to the negligence of another, you may have a strong claim to compensation.

Types of Broken Bones We See Resulting from Dog Bites

A broken bone is called a fracture; they are one in the same. However, not all fractures are the same. The different types of fractures that a California car accident victim can experience, include, but are not limited to:

Complete Fracture
A fracture where the bone has broken into two pieces.

Comminuted Fracture
A fracture in which the bone has broken into multiple pieces or is crushed.

    Impacted Fracture
    A fracture caused by the bone fragments driving into one another.

    Open Fracture
    A fracture that causes the bone to protrude through the skin.

The pain associated with breaking a bone varies with each individual, but it is very painful for several reasons. Muscles are trying to keep the bone fragments together which creates spasms and nerve endings have been damaged creating pressure pain. If the bone has broken through the skin, as in an open fracture, the victim can experience sharp, excruciating pain.

However, if the fracture is small enough it may not be detectable initially. This is the case of small fractures in children who may feel no pain at all. If you suspect a bone fracture after an accident, seek medical attention immediately.

What Factors Determine the Viability of Your Claim?

Liability: Who is to blame for the accident? Is liability clear cut or are there other circumstances that could make proving liability difficult?

Coverage: Does the responsible party have insurance? If so, what type of policy do they have? How much money is out there to be pursued?

Damages: What damages were inflicted as the result of the accident? The idea here is simple; in cases where damages are great, the potential amount to be recovered is great as well.
