Los Angeles Bone Fractures Attorney
Bone fractures, even for “lucky” victims, take time to mend. Normally, a bone fracture will bring with it enough pain to alert the injured person to the need for medical treatment. Surgery may or may not be necessary, depending on how severely bones are broken. If you have suffered a bone fracture on the job in the San Gabriel Valley or elsewhere in the Los Angeles region, you most likely have a viable workers’ compensation claim. Remember that it is important to:
- Inform your employer first, if possible
- Determine whether you have the right to choose your own doctor or must use a doctor prescribed by the workers’ compensation insurer
- Inform your doctor that your bone fractures occurred on the job
It is also important to realize that even your doctor may not be able to predict how your bones will heal until some time goes by. Some people with broken bones develop complications such as compartment syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) syndrome. A person with this type of ailment may be totally disabled and unable to hold down any job full time. If this happens to you, you should work with an injury attorney who can help ensure that you receive all compensation you are entitled to.
Some people with broken bones do not realize their bones have been broken for some time. This can complicate matters with regard to the reporting deadlines for workers’ compensation. You may be able to argue that you reported it as soon as you knew about it, rather than immediately after it happened, as recommended.
In the case of an injury on the job that you believe is minor, it is always good to get a thorough medical examination promptly. A doctor may be able to determine that you have suffered bone fractures before you are aware of it yourself.
