It’s the rare crash with a semi-truck that doesn’t result in some sort of injury, and by far, the most common injuries seen in these collisions involve broken bones.
While many people don’t think of bone fractures and breaks as “serious” injuries, the truth is that they can result in substantial financial expenses and greatly reduce your quality of life. Coupled with the other damages and losses caused by a truck accident and it’s clear that the impact on your wellbeing can be significant.
If you didn’t cause the 18-wheeler crash, you should be compensated for these damages. A Baton Rouge truck accident broken bone lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers can help you get the most compensation possible for your claim.
How Bad Was Your Bone Injury?
The severity of bone injuries varies significantly. From hairline fractures to bones that are completely crushed, a truck accident can cause them all, and the value of your claim will increase with the severity of your bone injury.
While fractures and simple breaks are the easiest to recover from, they’ll still incur a substantial amount of medical debt, diminished life quality, and potentially even lost income.
On the other end of the spectrum are the most serious of bone injuries: crushed bones, breaks that pierce the skin, and badly misaligned breaks. These injuries often require surgery to correct and can take a very long time to recover from. You might even be at increased risk for infection or require pins, screws, and plates to be installed.
Compensation for Your Broken or Fractured Bone
The trucking company or their insurer might offer to settle your claim soon after the truck crash. You should never accept such an offer without letting your attorney review it first. These early offers are infamous for leaving money on the table, as they’re designed to save the insurer as much money as possible.
We can help you recover full compensation for all of your damages and losses, both financial and non-economic, current and future. When you work with our firm, you won’t have to worry that you’re not getting everything that you’re entitled to.
These are just a few of the damages and losses that you might be eligible to recover:
All medical expenses related to the bone injury, including checkups, surgery, equipment, and medication
Lost income, wages, and earning potential
Pain and suffering
Emotional distress and disfigurement
Lost enjoyment of life
