Fairfax Broken Bone Lawyer
Broken bones can be painful, debilitating, and expensive. To file a successful claim for the compensation you need to recover, contact a Fairfax broken bone lawyer.
There’s no getting around it—breaking a bone hurts. And it’s a huge inconvenience that can make like both more difficult and more expensive.
If you’re struggling to manage your recovery and mounting medical bills, working with a Fairfax broken bone lawyer could help you get the compensation you need.
We at Priale & Racine, PLLC understand how intimidating the legal process can be. But we also understand that, when you’ve suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault, filing a personal injury claim is of vital importance.
Battling with the Insurance Company
Suffering from a bone fracture or a broken bone can significantly decrease your ability to function. Many victims expect that the insurance company will be willing to cooperate with them so they can get their lives back on track.
Sadly, though, insurance companies rarely meet that expectation. Because insurers’ top priority is protecting their profits, it’s unlikely that an insurer will work with you to provide comprehensive coverage and compensation for your broken bone.
The insurance company might instead try to suggest you were responsible for your injuries. You may even be offered a settlement, but it’s not likely to reflect the compensation you truly deserve.
A Fairfax broken bone lawyer can streamline all communications, negotiations, and dealings with the insurance company. Your attorney will handle these interactions on your behalf so you are protected from the insurance company’s misleading tactics.
What Causes Broken Bones
Based on how you sustained your injuries, your lawyer will determine who the most liable party is. Once your attorney knows who can be held responsible for your fractured bone injury, he or she will be able to determine which type of claim will find the most success.
For example, if poor medical care during surgery or another treatment caused you to break or fracture a bone, your lawyer would likely suggest filing a medical malpractice claim.
The following are some common causes of broken bones:
- Being struck by a falling object
- Heavy machinery or equipment malfunctions while you are on the job
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Sporting accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
Often, the biggest concern victims of broken bone injuries have is which types of compensation they are eligible to ask for in their claims. This, of course, varies by case, but compensation is often sought for the following damages:
- All medical expenses
- Wages you lost due to time away from work
- Wages you anticipate losing in the future
- Permanent or temporary disability
- Pain and suffering
