Broken bones are among the most easily identifiable injuries after an accident. The intense pain and loss of mobility are unmistakable. Unfortunately, broken bone injuries vary widely in severity and prognosis. While some breaks heal cleanly without excessive intervention, others never heal fully and leave victims with lifelong pain and mobility issues.
Because broken bones can be so costly to treat and may leave you without income for an extended period of time, you absolutely need an attorney if your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. is ready to help.
After an accident that leaves a victim with broken bones, they often wonder if they really need an attorney. After all, their injuries are obvious and the other party’s role in the accident is clear. If the insurance company will just pay out a fair settlement, why bother getting an attorney involved?
Because you cannot just trust the insurance company to pay out a fair settlement. Their primary interest is their bottom line, and they will do anything they’re legally permitted to do in order to minimize victims’ settlements and put more money in their own pockets. This may mean getting you on the phone and getting you to admit that your injury isn’t so bad and that you feel fine. It might mean digging into your social media to find evidence that you have been physically active since the accident.
By the time you realize that the settlement you received is far lower than it should be, it’s too late to fight back and ask for more. That’s why you need an attorney before you communicate with the liable party’s insurance provider. They can examine the circumstances of your accident and injuries to figure out how much you should ask for. Your attorney will negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company to fight for the compensation you deserve.

That’s why it’s important to seek compensation if you are entitled to it. If you can demonstrate that the other party directly caused your injuries through negligence, you may be entitled to damages for:
