If you have been involved in an accident that put stress on your body you may have ended up with a broken bone or a fractured bone. If you break a bone, you may need to speak with an attorney, depending on the circumstances involved. Some common accidents that are caused by negligence and may result in a broken bone include slip and fall accidents, car accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and on-the-job accidents.
If you have broken a bone because of the negligence of another party, you are entitled to recover compensation for your current and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, and for any permanent disability you may suffer. Normally, how severe the break is depends on the victim’s physical condition as well as the type of accident. If the accident victim is elderly, even a minor bone break can have catastrophic consequences. Children also can easily suffer bone breaks. Their bones normally heal much more quickly, but if the break is bad enough, it can have an impact on their growth.
You should speak with an attorney if you have suffered a broken bone in an accident caused by the negligence of another party. An experienced personal injury attorney can help build your case in order to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation after the accident.
