Injury Lawyers For Cases Involving Fractures And Broken Bones
Broken bones are a fairly common injury, and, as a result, many people do not think of them as “serious.” In reality, a compound fracture, skull fracture or other broken bone can lead to serious complications or a life-long disability. In certain circumstances, a severe fracture can even result in death.
At Lozner & Mastropietro, in Brooklyn, New York, our trial lawyers have recovered millions of dollars for injured clients, including those who suffered broken bones. We are committed to identifying those responsible for your accident and seeking full and fair compensation for your injuries.

Types of broken bones include:
- Arm fractures: humerus fracture, ulna fracture, radius fracture
- Clavicle fractures: common in babies who are pulled too hard through the birth canal
- Spine fractures: broken vertebrae in the spine
- Hand and wrist fractures
- Pelvic fractures: broken hips, broken pelvis
- Leg fractures: femur fracture, tibia fracture, broken knee-cap
- Foot fractures: broken toe, broken ankle
- Rib fractures
It is extremely important to seek immediate medical attention after suffering a broken bone. Any fracture and especially serious fractures, such as a skull, hip or rib fractures, can lead to severe complications such as blood clots, arthritis, nerve damage, internal bleeding, and even death. Your fracture may require orthopedic surgery to heal correctly and prevent disability. However, even with surgery, you may not be able to use your limb or joint in the same manner as before the accident.
Types Of Accidents
If you are the victim of an accident caused by another person’s recklessness, negligence or malice, you may be entitled to monetary damages for your broken bones and other injuries. Types of accidents that typically result in serious personal injury claims include:
- Car accidents, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents
- Slip, trip and fall accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Bus and taxi cab accidents
- Birth injury accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
Were You Injured At Work?
If you suffered a skull fracture or other broken bone while on the job, you may be entitled to seek compensation from a negligent third party in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits. New York State has special statutes that deal specifically with people injured in construction falls and other work-site accidents (Labor Law Section 240 and Labor Law Section 241). We thoroughly understand these laws and help recover maximum compensation for your construction injuries.
