Missouri Broken Femur Lawyer

The femur, or thigh bone, runs from the pelvis to the knee, and is one of the strongest bones in the body. It takes a significant amount of force to fracture a femur, and a broken femur is a serious injury that can require surgery – and almost always entails a long, arduous recovery.

Motor vehicle accidents – including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents – are the most common causes of femur injuries, but broken femurs can also be caused in other ways, such as bicycle accidents, skateboarding accidents, and slip and falls. Sometimes, a broken femur is unfortunate, but a true accident that is the fault of no one. However,  If you’ve suffered a femur fracture due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness, you deserve to receive compensation for your losses. This could include money for your current and future medical costs and lost earnings, and pain and suffering. To obtain the best outcome to your broken femur case, contact experienced Missouri personal injury lawyer Christopher R. Dixon to represent you in your femur fracture lawsuit.

In the immediate, broken thigh bones cause severe pain and bruising, but they can have long-term repercussions as well. On average, recovery from a broken femur takes 6 months to fully heal, and sometimes, surgery to realign the bone is required. A broken femur in a child can cause the injured leg to grow faster or slower than the non-injured leg, resulting in a limb discrepancy with life-long implications. A compound femur fracture (where the bone protrudes through the skin) runs the risk of developing a serious infection that could even result in death. Depending on the degree of muscle and nerve damage involved in your broken femur, there could be other complications or risks.

When you’re suing someone due to your broken femur, it’s important to hire a St. Louis personal injury attorney who has previous experience handling broken femur cases. In addition to money for the medical bills you’ve already accrued due to your femur injury, you may be entitled to compensation for future medical or therapy costs, and a reduction or loss of future earnings due to your injury. If you hire a Missouri personal injury attorney who lacks specific knowledge of femur injuries and broken femur cases, you could end up with a settlement amount that’s thousands less than what you deserve.

An experienced St. Louis broken femur attorney such as Christopher Dixon has the knowledge necessary assess your specific situation and accurately estimate the worth of your broken thigh lawsuit. Chris Dixon can obtain any relevant police or accident reports, review your medical records, interview witnesses, hire expert witnesses, and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. If necessary, Chris is fully prepared to litigate your broken femur case in Missouri state court.
