Ankle bone fracture injuries can involve expensive surgeries, intensive physical therapy and special medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers or other special devices. Internal plates and screws can be used to repair your bones. In addition, there will be costs for medications, lost wages, and other expenses associated with this type of injury including recovery for the client’s future needs and compensation for pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish and loss of the enjoyment of life. These issues must all be carefully evaluated.
Bone fractures or breaks commonly happen due to car accidents, slip & falls or other accidental injuries. Another contributing cause is osteoporosis, which causes weakening of the bones making them more susceptible to injury . Overuse can cause stress fractures, which are very small cracks in the bone and then an accident can aggravate that prior condition.
