Properly treating a bone fracture requires more of the doctor than setting the bone and removing the cast several weeks later. If set improperly or mismanaged during treatment, a severely fractured bone may cause serious tendon and joint problems that can result in a lifetime of pain, surgical procedures and physical therapy.
If you suffered a bone fracture that did not heal properly, you may have a claim for negligence liability on the part of the doctor responsible for diagnosis and treatment.
