Minnesota Broken Hip Attorney

Approximately 300,000 people are hospitalized with a broken hip every year in the United States, with many of the injuries occurring near the upper leg where the femur meets the hip.  Approximately 14,000 knee, thigh and hip injuries are caused in auto accidents every year, an increase in the past, because the head and chest are protected by airbags now.

Two types of hip fractures include:

  • Femoral neck fracture – the ball-and-socket hip joint breaks off the femur. Extent of dislocation can vary greatly.
  • Intertrochanteric hip fracture – breaks below the femoral neck and typically easily repaired using plates and screws.

Complications

Surgery is usually required to treat a broken hip, however only approximately 25% of those who sustain a broken hip make a full recovery.  Complications can be life-threatening and include:

  • blood clots
  • implant failure
  • lack of blood supply
  • fracture does not heal
  • fracture heals in a distorted position

Breaking a hip can be a painful injury, often requiring long-term recovery which could put you out of work.

If you or someone you know has suffered a broken hip from a slip and fall accident or a motor vehicle accident, you could claim compensation to pay for those expensive medical bills and lost wages.
