Suffer a broken arm in a motor vehicle collision? Broke your wrist slipping and falling in an unsafe area? Dealing with the pain and inconvenience of broken bone injuries can be a challenge, but it only gets more complicated when legal situations arise. With the high costs of treatment, physical pain, and mental anguish associated with these kinds of incidents, professional support may be necessary to fully recover.
Broken bones are incredibly common in the United States; on average, over 6 million people break bones each year. While most simple fractures heal easily, over 300,000 cases each year, often compound fractures, cannot be treated properly with traditional methods, and involve a more expensive and extensive pattern of treatment. With the current state of U.S. healthcare, treating even minor breaks can be expensive, with costs for a broken bone without insurance ranging from $2,500 to $3,500. Additional tools, like CT scans and X-rays, can drive these costs up higher as well, creating a serious financial commitment to treat a commonplace injury.
If someone else is at fault for your traumatic injury, the right lawyer can be a significant asset. If you are looking for a way to recoup costs for damages, cover lost wages, or pay hospital bills, a committed personal injury attorney can help you secure the restitution you deserve.
What an Attorney Can Do For You
If you are injured through the fault of another party, whether in the workplace, in a motor vehicle collision, or through medical negligence, representation by an experienced attorney can be extremely beneficial.
