Perhaps one of the worst types of fractures an adult can sustain is a hip fracture, which sometimes has life-threatening complications for those who are older. Many adults have suffered from a fall or other serious accident that has resulted in a hip fracture in South Dakota. Sadly, it is estimated that one out of five people who have hip fractures will die within one year due to complications. Call a South Dakota hip fracture attorney if you or a loved one has suffered from a hip fracture. We will work with you to assess your case and to determine if another party is at fault for your serious personal injury.

Prevention Is Key

Falls are the most common cause of hip fractures. Our South Dakota personal injury lawyers urge you to take the following steps to help prevent hip fractures:

  • Exercise to build strength and flexibility
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Check your vision to help prevent falls
  • Review your medications and any side effects
  • Remove or fix all tripping hazards in the house, such as loose rugs and electrical cords
  • Check your bone density to determine if you have osteoporosis
