Surgeries for Broken Bones Due to an Albuquerque Car Accident

Albuquerque Car Accident Causing Fractures: Common Surgeries for Broken Bones

If you were injured in a serious Albuquerque car accident, it is likely that you suffered a fracture.  Also known as a broken bone, this is an injury which causes your bone to break due to the sheer pressure and force of the motor vehicle accident.  The broken ends of the bone could remain in the same place, or they could be displaced.  Sometimes broken bones could even pierce through the skin in what is known as a compound fracture.  Other times the bone could be broken into many pieces, often small pieces, which is known as a comminuted fracture.

Here at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., our experience Albuquerque car accident lawyer knows that catastrophic motor vehicle accidents causing broken bones likely need surgery.  This is expensive and not entirely covered by insurance, while also resulting in an individual having many days off from work due to the healing process.  This combination of added expenses and lost wages can be difficult on a family.  This is why New Mexico law affords certain rights to victims of motor vehicle accidents.  Call to schedule a FREE appointment to learn what those rights are and how we can begin to protect them for you.

Common Surgeries from Broken Bones

Our experienced Albuquerque car accident lawyer has handled many motor vehicle accidents involving broken bones that required surgery.  Generally this is known as an “open reduction” or “open repair” of the broken bone.  It is important for your lawyer to know how to handle these types of cases, as they can be crucial to allowing the judge or jury to understand the full extent of your injuries and to get the compensation you may deserve.

Some common surgeries due to broken bones from an auto accident include the following:

  • Orbital blowout fracture repair – this is to fix the eye socket and the bottom “floor” of your eye socket which is where your eye sits.
  • Tib/fib fracture repair – this is the end of your fibula and tibia which are near your ankle, and can break when your leg gets caught under the dashboard.  This repair requires hardware to re-attach parts of the bone to the main bone to allow it to heal.
  • Ulna/radius repair – Similarly to a tib/fib fracture, the ulna and radius also will need hardware to screw pieces of the bone which may break off back to the main bone.
  • Internal fixation of major bones – injuries to large bones like the pelvis, hip, femur, humerus, and other large bones will require screws, rods, and even plates to hold them together with a method known as internal fixation.
  • Repair of compression fractures – a compression fracture is when the bone is crushed into itself, commonly the vertebra, and it usually require surgical intervention to prevent further damage to the nearby vital structures, such as the spinal cord.
