The Cost of Multiple Bone Fracture Accidents

Posted in Catastrophic InjuryFirm News and tagged by Ken Wilhelm

Fracture Accidents Victims of New York car accidents often suffer a wide range of catastrophic injuries such as head trauma, spinal cord damage, lacerations and multiple bone fractures. By definition, multiple bone fracture injuries involve more than one bone being broken at once or a single bone fractured in multiple locations. Multiple bone fractures can be “comminuted” (located near each other) or “segmental” (further apart). All types of multiple bone fractures are devastatingly painful and they often require long periods of healing, multiple surgeries and expensive physical therapy.
A victim suffering multiple bone fractures may seek compensation for their losses if their injury was caused by someone’s negligence or wrongdoing. An important part of the claims process is determining not only how much was lost in terms of injuries and damages in the accident, but also making an assessment of future damages and losses as a result of the incident.
Before filing a claim, injured victims should first begin to itemize all of their medical bills and expenses. That includes emergency room fees, medical devices purchased or leased, prescription drug costs and surgical procedures. Victims of fractures also tend to miss work as they recover from those injuries. So, lost wages should also be included on the list of damages.
In addition, injury victims may also have to pay for rehabilitation. Extended physical therapy may not be covered by victims’ health insurance. Other damages that may be covered include, but are not limited to past and future pain and suffering, and emotional distress. An experienced personal injury attorney will work with investigators and medical professionals to determine the cause of the accident and accurately assess the extent of the victim’s injuries, damages and losses.
