Since this business is still fairly new, getting fair compensation for your injuries may be challenging.

Fractures or broken bones are a common injury in Key Largo. Residents suffer this injury when playing sports, in falls, on the job, and in car collisions. Children can break bones when taking part in school activities or when playing sports or playing on playgrounds.

In some cases, broken bones result in simple fractures. The bone can break cleanly and not tear through the skin. In most cases, a cast can be worn for eight weeks and the bone heals on its own. In the case of hairline fractures, a functional cast can be worn to make mobility even easier. One of the wonderful things about bones is that if they are set and kept immobile enough, our bodies can heal a fracture.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
