Hip Fracture

San Jose Compression Hip Fracture Attorneys

A fracture of the hip, or the proximal end of the femur near the hip joint, is an injury that is caused by high-impact trauma from car accidents, falls and other serious accidents. In most cases, a hip fracture requires surgery and a lengthy period of rehabilitation before a person is able to walk, run and perform other basic activities. This treatment is expensive and accident victims may be eligible for compensation to pay for medical care.

If you have suffered a hip fracture in a car wreck or due to another person’s negligence, it is in your best interest to speak with an experienced attorney about your rights. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, we have more than 75 years of combined experience representing catastrophic injury victims in California. Talk with us about your accident and what options you have for recovery.

San Mateo Hip Fracture Attorneys

There are four different types of common hip fractures which include:

  • Femoral head fractures: a fracture of the femoral head as the result of trauma and a dislocation of the hip joint
  • Femoral neck fracture: a fracture that is adjacent to the femoral head. These fractures can also damage the blood supply to the femoral head
  • Intertrochanteric fracture: A break in which the fracture line is between the lower and the back part of the base of the bone. This is the most common type of hip fracture.
  • Subtrochanteric fracture: a break that is below the base of the femoral head and may extend down into the shaft of the femur

Small children, infants and elderly persons are more vulnerable to hip fractures, especially when exposed to trauma in an accident.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    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.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
