New Jersey Catastrophic Injury Lawyer Since 1987
Traumatic injuries often cause bone fractures, leaving victims with limited mobility for months—sometimes permanently. Depending on how bones heal, permanent impairment can occur due to “malunion,” when a bone heals at a wrong angle that prevents normal, painless function. In other cases, victims can develop traumatic arthritis and suffer chronic pain for years.
Traumatic impact also increases the likelihood of a fracture complication, such as:
- Bone infection
- Bone necrosis
- Nerve damage around the bone
- Internal damage from bone fragments
Many people who have never suffered an injury don’t realize that bone fractures create psychological injuries as well. Witnessing or experiencing trauma can cause the victim to develop PTSD, affecting their ability to function and their overall well-being. Emotional counseling and physical rehabilitation may be required for a full and healthy recovery.
Economic Costs of Bone Fractures
The loss of mobility or the development of chronic pain hinders a person’s ability to work. The combined medical costs of the initial injury, the loss of work hours due to ongoing rehabilitation and the loss of lifetime earning potential from the bone fracture make it harder for a person to afford to live—which will only get more costly the longer a person goes without proper treatment.
When it comes to traumatic bone fractures, the cost of treatment is only the tip of the iceberg. The loss of quality of life, the pain of dealing with chronic or permanent disability—these have a real cost to our mental and physical well-being. Our firm’s job is to make sure the burden of that cost is on the at-fault party.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
