If you or a loved one has suffered an orthopedic injury such as a broken bone, fracture, or a dislocation or the deterioration of bone, then the attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael A. Fiumara would like to help you get full compensation for your injuries and facilitate your speedy recovery.  If the orthopedic injury was due to the negligence of a third-party or your employer, then the legal services of our personal injury attorneys can force those parties to uphold their obligations to restore your financial circumstances and long-term health.

Whether you simply require workers’ compensation benefits to hold you over until your third party negligence lawsuit is filed to recover damages for your medical expenses and pain and suffering the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael A. Fiumara can help.

Bone fractures and other orthopedic injuries can be very serious and cause you to miss weeks, months, or even longer periods of time from work.  Therefore, paying your living, medical, and other expenses while you recuperate from an orthopedic injury can be critical. Hence, our accident lawyers understand all the intricacies of personal injury law and the nuances of insurance tactics which can delay your receipt of benefits to which you are entitled.  Monies and benefits for which you may be able to recover from our representation include:

  • Payments for all medical expenses and treatment.
  • Weekly payment for lost income and lost wages.
  • Lump sum payments and negotiated settlements.
  • Temporary disability payments or extensions based upon inability to work due to the disability.
  • Funds to refinance anticipated future medical expenses and surgeries.


Broken bones can take at least 3-6 months to heal depending upon the severity of the injury and the age of the injured person.  The older we get, the longer our bones take to heal from a fracture or breakage.  A child may be healed in just a few months while an older adult may need medical treatment for a year or more and that doesn’t include rehabilitation.  In severe cases, the broken bones never heal completely leaving the patient with a lifetime of pain, instability, and disability which our skilled and experienced attorneys will fight to achieve full compensation for these injuries.

Fractures may be classified as stable, displaced, spiral, comminuted, transvers, oblique, open or compound. Depending on the type and severity of the fracture, surgical remedies may be necessary.

This can include options such as:

  • Open reduction.
  • Intramedullary fixation, where a rod is placed through the bone.
  • Surgical pins, plates and screws.
  • External fixation.
  • Joint replacement.
  • Bone graft.

There are many common cases of accidents which can lead to broken bones, fractures, and orthopedic injuries; the most common causes are:

  • Auto accidents.
  • Motorcycle accidents.
  • Pedestrian accidents.
  • Airplane accidents.
  • Truck accidents.
  • Bicycle accidents.
  • Limousine accidents.
  • Train and metro accidents.
  • Tour bus accidents.
