5 Common Types of Forearm Fractures

Injury Attorney Jeff Korek at Supreme CourtForearm fractures can lead to serious complications that may significantly impact your life. If your forearm fracture injury was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another individual, you should contact a New York forearm settlement lawyer because you may be entitled to monetary compensation.

Below are five common types of forearm fractures that generally result in serious pain and may considerably restrict your daily activities:

  • Radial shaft fracture – this fracture usually occurs from either a direct blow to the forearm or a fall on outstretched hands.
  • Ulnar shaft fracture – this condition is nicknamed the “nightstick fracture” because it is most frequently sustained when an object has hit the forearm or the forearm has hit an object.
  • Fracture of both bones – if you have fractured both of the bones in your forearm, you will most likely need surgery and a cast, as the bones do not generally stabilize on their own.
  • Distal radius fracture – this type of injury occurs when the radius is fractured at the wrist.
  • Elbow (olecranon fracture) – since the elbow point, or olecranon, is covered by just skin it does not have much protection, therefore you can easily break it if you hit on it or fall on it.

Regardless of what type of forearm fracture injury you have sustained, if it was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another, you may be able to file a lawsuit and seek monetary damages.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
