While broken bones and fractures are commonly regarded as minor injuries, the effect that they have on your life can be just as devastating as other injury types. While they won’t interfere with your cognitive abilities like a traumatic brain injury will, they can greatly inhibit your physical capabilities, limit your mobility, and amass a substantial amount of medical debt and lost income.
As the most frequently seen injury in car crashes, you can pursue financial compensation from the at-fault party’s insurer when you’ve suffered a fracture in a wreck. No matter what the cost of your claim is, the insurance will do everything it can to minimize your payout. This is why you need Milton Wagner, a Phoenix car accident broken bone lawyer, on your side throughout the legal process.
Auto Wreck Bone Injuries Have Serious Consequences
As mentioned, a bone fracture of any severity can have a significantly detrimental effect on how you live your life. You’ll need to wear a cast or brace while the bone heals, which will limit your physical activities. Depending on your job and which bone you broke in the wreck, you might either not be able to work or suffer greatly reduced productivity.
Bone injuries can also be incredibly painful and may require expensive and addictive medications while you heal. Even if your broken bone didn’t interfere with your work or ability to drive, the painkillers might.
In the worst accidents, you might suffer a crushed bone or badly misaligned break. These wounds usually require surgery to correct, and they might even call for surgically installed pins, screws, and plates. Possibly worse, you’ll likely be at high risk for re-injury, which can limit your future lifestyle.
A Fair Settlement for Your Broken Bone
While the insurance company will probably offer a lowball settlement initially, you don’t have to accept it. Attorney Wagner can investigate your car accident, work with your doctor to evaluate your medical needs, and estimate how long your recovery will take and whether there will be any lingering disabilities.
In short, we need to prove who was at fault for the wreck and demonstrate why you deserve compensation and how much. In the first case, the insurance will be actively working to push blame onto you so that won’t have to pay you as much. In the second case, the last thing they want is for you to know what your claim is truly worth, as their goal is to settle your claim for the bare minimum.
When you work with Wagner Law, you prevent the insurance company from realizing either of these goals. You also give yourself the best chance for achieving a full settlement for your bone injury, which will secure both your finances and your future wellbeing.
