Fracture Injury Attorney
Fracture injuries are a common outcome of Everett motor-vehicle accidents
Sometimes a fracture injury is a short-term, fairly simple injury. But after a serious motor-vehicle accident, bone fractures can be severe and painful injuries that have long-term and negative effects. People suffering from fracture injuries often face serious consequences including chronic pain, loss of mobility, extended medical treatment, and expensive medical bills.
After a serious car, motorcycle, pedestrian, truck, or other kind of accident in Everett, recovery from the more serious types of fractures may require corrective surgeries or physical therapy. Combined with other injuries suffered in a collision, many people experience long-term or permanent disability.
After an Everett accident, common types of fractures include:
- Stable fracture: The broken ends of the bone line up and are barely out of place.
- Open, compound fracture: The skin may be pierced by the bone or by a blow that breaks the skin at the time of the fracture. The bone may or may not be visible in the wound.
- Transverse fracture: This type of fracture has a horizontal fracture line.
- Oblique fracture: This type of fracture has an angled pattern.
- Comminuted fracture: In this type of fracture, the bone shatters into three or more pieces.

Everett fracture injury victims have resources available to help them recover
After an accident, injured people and their attorneys need information as they prepare the insurance claim. Here we offer links to various organizations, including:
The Everett Police Department usually produces a traffic collision report after an injury crash. This report is a crucial piece of information needed to determine liability in a collision. Go here to request an Everett police report online.
The Everett Fire & Rescue Department often will respond to the scene of an injury collision, and they also produce important reports that will support your insurance claim.
The Washington State Patrol is the repository for the state's collision records. The agency receives all Vehicle Collision Reports from law enforcement officers at the state, county, city, and town levels, along with civilians that report their own collisions. These reports are written for each vehicle collision resulting in injury or death of any person, or damage to property to $1000 or more. Go here to request a copy of a traffic collision report.
Everett's major hospitals include Providence Everett Medical Center. This and other medical facilities will provide copies of your medical records and bills following treatment, which will be needed to fully support your claim.
