Elbow Fractures in Children

Elbow fractures in children are relatively common. Because most children are so physically active, they regularly participate in activities that put them at risk for elbow trauma, such as skateboarding, football, gymnastics and bicycling. Falls from playground equipment and motor vehicle accidents are also another cause of elbow injuries.

About the Elbow


Scapula Fracture

Hello, I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Bone Fracture Lawyer. A scapular fracture is a fracture to the scapula, more commonly known as the shoulder blade. The scapula is strong and located in a protected place in our body, so it rarely breaks. When it does break, it’s an indication to me that the person was subjected to a considerable amount of blunt force trauma (sometimes resulting from car or motorcycle accidents). Addition to the scapula fracture a person may have suffered serious chest trauma as well.

Preventing Common Pediatric Injuries

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento pediatric injury lawyer. Parents want to keep their infant and adolescent children safe. Emergency room visits are scary and no parent wishes their child to experience pain. That is why it is important to identify common pediatric injuries and know how to prevent them. Accidents are among the most common reasons for injuries that are preventable in children. Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death among children and adolescents. Millions of kids end up in an emergency room due to a pediatric trauma injury that was potentially preventable. Because these injuries are predictable, there are steps you can take towards prevention.

Feather River Basin Evacuations

I’m Ed Smith, an Oroville personal injury attorney. At approximately 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, February 12, 2017, an emergency evacuation order was issued to nearly 200,000 residents who live downstream of the Oroville Dam after officials noticed erosion on the dam’s emergency spillway. Officials from the surrounding areas warned that the emergency spillway was in immediate danger of failing, which would result in a 35-foot wall of water raging into the communities that are located along the Feather River Basin.

Children at Greater Risk for Vehicle Ejection During Crashes

Three children ejected from an SUV… baby in critical condition following ejection during car accident… child ejected during rollover crash. These are all real examples of catastrophic injuries that have occurred recently. An ejection injury that results from a car accident are one of the worst types of injuries, and the risks are even greater for children. It is vital that all passengers in a motor vehicle wear safety belts, and that young children are buckled in proper child safety seating. Unfortunately, when passengers do not buckle up, or a child is improperly harnessed in their seat, a car accident can lead to serious ejection injuries.
