Importance of Typing Femur Fractures
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. Those who have broken a bone before likely remember visiting a physician and perhaps being confused by the medical jargon surrounding their injury. This language is important because it classifies the bone fracture that they have suffered, helping to guide the tests, treatment, and prognosis.
How do Plates and Screws Fail in the Repair of Femur Fractures?
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. One of the most common ways that femur fractures are repaired after traumatic injuries in an auto accident is to use plates and screws to hold the bones together. Unfortunately, these plates and screws can suffer mechanical failure after being used for femur fractures and humerus shaft fractures.

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Injury Lawyer. When patients are involved in an auto accident or a truck accident, there is a risk of suffering not just one bone fracture but many bone fractures. This is called polytrauma. If patients suffer a femur fracture as part of this type of accident, it can be a challenge to decide when to repair the injuries.
