Broken Bones And Fractures Lawyer

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Accidents are a part of life and they typically occur without warning. While some accidents are minor, others can be serious and require extensive medical treatment. The entire process is more difficult if you are injured due to someone else’s negligence. The following is an overview of personal injury law and how it may help you obtain compensation for broken bones and fractures sustained in an accident. If you have been injured at the hands of someone else, it may be beneficial for you to seek the advice of a personal injury attorney.

Types Of Accidents

Studies have shown that most people break at least one bone in their body during their lifetime. When you are involved in an accident, your chances of breaking or fracturing a bone increases greatly. Below are some of the most common types of accidents that lead to broken bones:

Common Broken Bones

While it is possible to break any bone in an accident, certain types of fractures are more common than others. The most common fractures sustained in accidents are:

  • Fractured Collar Bone
  • Broken Arm
  • Ankle Fractures
  • Broken Foot
  • Facial Fractures
  • Broken Nose
  • Broken Leg
  • Wrist Fractures
  • Fractures Of The Fingers

Certain fractures are not serious, but some may require corrective surgery. Compound fractures are commonly seen as the result of a serious car accident. This fracture causes the bone to protrude through the skin and surgery is necessary for healing. Other bone fractures may appear minor, but cause problems with functional ability over time.

Statute Of Limitations

The law allows people who are hurt in accidents a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit to receive compensation for their injuries. In New York, the statute of limitations is 3 years from the date of the accident. This includes car accidents, slip and falls, motorcycle accidents and product liability accidents.

Damages

If you have been injured in an accident and suffered broken bones, you may be able to obtain a settlement for your injuries. A personal injury lawyer may be able to help you receive money for:

  • Lost Wages
  • Ambulance Transport Fees
  • Doctor Visits
  • Hospital Bills
  • Cost Of Speech, Occupational Or Physical Therapy
  • Mental Health Counseling
  • Pain And Suffering
  • Cost Of Alternate Transportation
  • Future Lost Wages In The Event You Are Disabled

If you suffered an injury that keeps you from performing your duties at work or if you must change occupations, your lawyer may be able to calculate future lost wages. The amount varies but is designed to compensate you for being unable to work in the same capacity as before the accident.

Accident Causes

Some accidents are minor and not caused by negligence. However, in certain cases the reckless behavior or negligence causes an accident that injures someone. The primary causes of accidents are:

  • Driving While Under The Influence Of Drugs Or Alcohol
  • Property Owner Negligence
  • Distracted Driving
  • Failure To Yield The Right Of Way
  • Unsafe Conditions On Property
  • Assault
  • Battery

Proving Negligence

In personal injury cases, the injured party must be able to prove they were hurt because of negligence on the part of another. Everyone has an obligation to act in a way that does not create a harmful situation, which is known as duty of care. Some ways a person may breach the duty of care is by driving under the influence or ignoring traffic laws when driving. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises free from things that could harm others. If a property owner fails to post a sign warning people of a portion of damaged sidewalk, they could be found negligent. Dog owners that fail to keep a latch on their gate or their dog on a leash, may be found negligent, as well. The law regarding personal injuries is complex and it often takes an experienced lawyer to prove someone was at fault in an accident. It is not always easy to establish who was at fault in an accident, especially if there were no witnesses or video evidence of the accident while it occurred.

How A Lawyer Can Help

Hiring a personal injury lawyer can increase your chances of obtaining a settlement for your injuries. Some duties a personal injury lawyer can perform are:

  • Interview Witnesses
  • Obtain Police Reports
  • Gather Evidence
  • Hire Investigators
  • Speak With Medical Experts
  • Negotiate With The Insurance Company On Your Behalf
  • File Court Documents
  • Take Your Case To Trial
  • Represent You In Court

If you or someone you care about has been involved in an accident and suffered severe or debilitating bone fractures, it may be in your best interest to speak with a lawyer for advice. During a consultation, your personal injury lawyer can review the facts surrounding your case and the extent of your injuries. He will let you know the best way to proceed and how you can get a fair settlement for your case. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side can ease the stress and anxiety associated with every case. This will allow you to focus on your recovery and returning to the workforce after rehabilitation, if possible.

Contact a personal injury attorney today to discuss your case and all the options available to you under the law. Waiting to speak to a lawyer may place your case in danger if you are at risk of exceeding the statute of limitations. Hiring an attorney can help you navigate the confusing legal process that is a part of most personal injury lawsuits.
