Bone fractures can be some of the most excruciatingly painful, horrific and disfiguring injuries possibly suffered.
The function and support of the tissues and body are compromised. Often there must be surgery, placing pins or other such devices in the broken bones. Casts and splints and slings are also very common. Bone fractures are usually very painful and they can take a significant time, hopefully to a decent function and look, however, it does not always work out like this and subsequent surgeries can be necessary. It goes almost without saying that there is limitation of activities and enjoyment that come with fractures. Also, fractures can lead to disfigurement that may or may not be repaired with subsequent surgeries.
The type of full monetary recovery that we seek for our bone fracture victim clients can include:
- Medical expenses: past, present and future.
- Loss of earnings: past present and future.
- Pain and suffering: past, present and future.
- Emotional distress: past, present and future.
- Loss of activities and enjoyment of life
Also, punitive damages, meant to punish the party at fault, may be sought, depending on the circumstances.
If the fracture victim is married, the spouse may have a claim for loss of consortium, that is, loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, moral support and sexual relations (or the ability to have children).
When we take a case, we take it to win.
Very often there is insurance covering negligence and it has been said that without an attorney fighting for you insurance companies will do their best to take advantage of you. They may try to fight over whose fault the incident is, say your medical bills are outrageous and not recoverable, deny loss of earnings and try not to give money for pain and suffering and diminishment of your life style. Let’s face it, the insurance companies are not in the business of giving away money. They have trained claims adjusters and attorneys trying to pay nothing, or as little as possible.
