What Should I Do If I Get Injured And Break Or Fracture A Bone?

It is extremely important that you contact our injury attorneys as soon as possible. It is critical not to do anything that might have a negative affect upon your case.  Our injury lawyers might advise you not to give any statements or sign any authorizations, so it is important to speak with us before you do something that could have a negative impact on your case. There are also potential notice requirements that, if missed, could result in the dismissal of your case.

How is Liability Determined?

The critical issue in many personal injury cases is just how a “reasonable person” would be expected to act in the situation that caused the injury. A person is negligent when he or she fails to act like a “reasonable person”. Whether a given person has met the “reasonable person standard” is often a matter that is decided by a jury after the presentation of evidence and argument at trial. This is one of the many reasons why you should contact us as soon as possible so we can start to investigate and develop your case.

What Compensation Might I Receive If My Case is Successful?

Usually, a person who is liable for an injury-which generally means his or her liability insurance company-must pay an injured person for

  • Past and future medical care and related expenses
  • Past and future income lost because of the accident
  • Permanent physical disability or disfigurement
  • Loss of family, social, and educational experiences
  • Emotional damages, such as stress, embarrassment, depression, or strains on family relationships
  • Punitive Damages (In Extraordinary Cases)
  • Damaged Property

You will be awarded “damages,” or compensation, which is money intended to restore you to the position you were in before your injury. This money is not considered income (excluding monies paid for loss of income) and is not taxable as income by the federal or state government.

How Do I Go About Getting Experts To Help Me With My Broken Or Fractured Bone Injury?

Our accident attorney will be able to hire a team of experts that can assist in the development of your case, which, depending on your case can range from a private investigator, to doctors, to economists.

Who Will Pay The Expenses of Hiring All Of These Experts?

We will advance all costs and expenses of the case as they are incurred. Once the case is concluded, we would be reimbursed for their costs out of the recovery. If there is no recovery, the client will owe nothing for the costs and expenses, which will be absorbed by us.
