Baton Rouge Motorcycle Accident Broken Bone Lawyer
Motorcycle accidents happen every day for one reason or another and can lead to very serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries seen in these crashes are broken or fractured bones. Bone injuries, while viewed by many as minor injuries, can dramatically affect your life and wellbeing.
Outside of the doctor visits that your recovery will require, fractured bones can cause you to miss work, lose quality of life, and more, so these seemingly minor injuries often result in large financial losses and substantial lost quality of life. In this situation, you’ll want to know that your expenses are covered, and a Baton Rouge motorcycle accident broken bone lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers can help.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Once you’ve suffered a broken bone in a motorcycle wreck, you’ll need to file a claim with your insurance. They’ll come back with an offer, and even if it seems generous—it likely won’t be enough. That’s one common reason to have a lawyer on your side.
Insurance companies want to settle quickly and for as little money as possible. That means that your initial settlement offer, while seemingly appropriate, may overlook the future expenses you will face. Your attorney will fight for those, as well as other damages you may not even be aware of. We will also handle all of the communication with the insurance company so you can focus on recovery.
Full Compensation for a Motorcycle Crash Bone Injury
Our firm will make certain that you recover all of the damages that you are entitled to. Your attorney will investigate the crash to determine what caused it and who was at fault, thereby leading to the most possible compensation.
The damages you might qualify for generally fall into two separate categories:
These damages are those directly tied to monetary expenses, such as the following:
Medical bills, both current and future
Personal property damage, such as damage to your motorcycle
Physical therapy as needed to recover from your broken bone
Lost wages from being unable to work
Non-economic damages are intended to compensate how your quality of life has been damaged by the motorcycle wreck and your bone fracture:
Pain and suffering
Loss of consortium
Lost enjoyment of life
Since these awards are more difficult to determine as they don’t have an obvious dollar amount, it may be tougher to prove that you are entitled to them, but your lawyer is experienced in these negotiations and can prove your need for compensation.
