Los Angeles Compound Fracture Attorney
The Consequences of a Compound Fracture
Compound fractures involve broken bones that puncture through the skin, causing significant damage to surrounding tissue. Since compound fractures tear through muscle, nerves, and skin, the risk for infection or the development of compartment syndrome, is greater. In compartment syndrome, a broken bone causes the compression of blood vessels, nerves, or muscles. If not treated in a timely manner, tissue death due to a lack of oxygen can result, leading to amputation or death. At the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg, we work closely with orthopedic specialists and other medical professionals as needed in preparing and presenting cases involving compound fractures. We hold negligent parties responsible for our client’s injuries and demand compensation proportional to the extent of their injuries.
