Although the skeletal structure of both adults and children share many of the same risks of injury there is a unique injury which may be present in a case involving a child who fractures or breaks a bone. This injury is referred to as a growth plate fracture. The growth plate is the region of growing tissue located near the tip of long bones in children adolescents. Each long bone has at least two growth plates. The growth plate essentially determines the length and shape of the mature bone when it is fully developed. Generally, growth plates are the weakest skeletal areas of children and are most vulnerable to injury and could result in a growth plate fracture.

The diagnosis, care and treatment of a growth plate fracture injury should be started as soon as possible. It is very important that you consult with an experienced orthopedic surgeon to determine the nature, extent and treatment program for your child's growth plate fracture injury. The vast majority of growth plate injuries heal without any long-term negative effects but depending upon the circumstances, there might be long-term problems that could result in a permanent disability for your child. It is very important that in addition to obtaining expert medical advice, that you get the expert advice of an experienced Connecticut child injury attorney and accident lawyer.
