Femur Fracture

Oakland Broken Femur Attorneys

One of the largest and strongest bones in the body, the femur – or thigh bone – extends from the hip all the way down to the knee. In order for a fracture to the femur to occur, there must be a large enough force to break such a strong bone. The common causes of femur fractures are car and other motor vehicle accidents, falls from heights and other serious accidents, many of which are caused by negligence.

If you have suffered a fracture of the femur in an accident, it is in your best interest to speak with an attorney about your rights to compensation. At the San Mateo law firm ofGaline, Frye & Fitting, our lawyers have more than 75 years of combined experience representing accident victims who have suffered broken bones and other serious injuries. We can explain your rights and your best options for recovery.

San Mateo Femur Fracture Attorneys

There are generally three categories of femur fractures, which include:

  • Proximal femur fractures: also called hip fractures, this involves a break of the upper-most portion of the thigh bone and is adjacent to the hip bone
  • Femoral shaft fractures: this is a fracture of main shaft of the femur bone and is a catastrophic injury that occurs in car wrecks and other serious accidents
  • Supracondylar femur fractures: this is a fracture to the femur above the knee joint and often involves the cartilage that is present in the knee joint

In many cases, especially those involving femoral shaft fractures, surgery is required to repair femur fractures. Plates, screws and other braces are used to fix the bone and rehabilitation may be significant.

    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.
