What is the Average Settlement for Broken Bones in a Car Accident?

Average Settlements for Broken Bones in a Car Accident | 24/7 Support

There is no way to calculate the average settlement for broken bones in a car accident, but you can determine your case’s worth with the help of our law firm. The value of your case depends on the severity of your injuries and how they will affect your life going forward.

Broken bones can result in exorbitant medical bills since they may require surgery and ongoing medical treatment. Along with seeking compensation for your economic losses, you may also qualify for damages related to your pain and suffering.

Potential Forms of Compensation for Broken Bones in a Car Accident

By pursuing an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit, you may recover both economic and non-economic damages for your car accident injuries.

Compensation in your case could cover:

  • Past lost wages if your broken bones kept you from working
  • Loss of future earning capacity in the event of a temporary or permanent disability
  • Hospital visits
  • Diagnostic tests, such as x-rays and MRIs
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy
  • Psychological therapy
  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Lost quality of life
  • Past and future mental anguish

A lawyer from our firm can help you determine which forms of compensation you qualify for and how to pursue them from the liable party.

Seeking Compensation for Future Losses

Broken bones can lead to future health complications. According to Critical Care Nursing Clinics of North Americatwo severe medical complications that can result from fractures include:

  • Acute compartment syndrome, which can result in tissue death and permanent disability
  • Fat embolism syndrome (FES), in which poor blood circulation leads to pulmonary issues

In another example, spinal fractures can lead to osteomyelitis and osteonecrosis, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).

These medical conditions can leave you facing years of treatment, along with a disability that prevents you from ever returning to work. When seeking compensation, you should make sure a settlement accounts for these potential future losses, or you will be left footing the bill later on.

How a Lawyer from Our Firm Can Help You with Your Case

When an insurer approaches you with an initial settlement offer, it usually does not reflect your losses accurately. Adjusters may not have taken your medical assessment into account. They want to quickly resolve your case so they can move on to the next injured claimant.

Be aware that once you accept a settlement offer, you lose your right to take legal action against the liable party later on–– even if your injuries cause more financial losses.

This is where a lawyer from our team can help. We can communicate with your doctors to understand the extent of your broken bones and fight for fair compensation.

Reaching maximum medical improvement does not mean you are cured. If you face any ongoing medical needs for months or years after the accident, we will account for this when we seek compensation.

We Will Handle Your Case’s Paperwork

Whether you file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit, we can handle the paperwork for you.

Instead of communicating back and forth with insurers or hunting down evidence, you can focus on healing from your fracture and spending time with your loved ones.

We Will Negotiate with the Insurers

Usually, insurers will settle before they have to go to trial, but a lengthy negotiation process may ensue. We can handle this for you while also keeping an eye on any relevant state laws regarding your time limit to take legal action.

We Will Represent You at Trial

If negotiations do not yield fair compensation that takes your current and future losses into account, we will not back down. We can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and represent you in court.

If we are successful, you will receive a court award instead of a settlement.

Affording a Lawyer When Seeking a Settlement

Some car accident victims worry about how they will afford a lawyer. When you hire a law firm that works on a contingency-fee-basis, you can put that worry to rest.

A lawyer from our firm can start working on your case immediately at no cost to you. We do not charge any upfront fees, and we only collect payment if we obtain a settlement or court award for you.

This also allows you to be proactive and avoid wasting any time when seeking compensation.
