Broken Hip Injury Attorney in Wisconsin
We take winning personallyFree case consultation
Hip fractures are commonly thought of as an older person’s injury, but anyone in a motor vehicle accident or a serious fall can have their hip broken. It’s a serious injury that usually requires surgery to repair the damage (or even replace the hip joint), followed by months of physical therapy.
If you’ve suffered a broken hip in an auto accident caused by someone else, you have every right to take legal action to ensure you are compensated for your injury. Even if you fell on a slippery sidewalk, don’t just assume it was your own clumsiness. Often, there are other parties who can be held at least partly responsible for your fall. Personal injury attorney Steve Caya and his associates look into every possibility to find those who can be held liable for your injury.
Symptoms of a hip fracture:
- Inability to move right after a fall
- Severe hip or groin pain
- Pain when putting weight on the leg of your injured hip
- Swelling, bruising and stiffness in hip area
- Leg on side of broken hip is shorter than the other leg
- Leg on side of injured hip is shorter or turned outward
