What is a Broken Bone Worth?

Wanting an appropriate amount understandable. But the negligent party will try to pay as little as possible.

Texas law allows injury victims to recover various damages after an accident. You want to make sure that the amount of your settlement or award is sufficient because the other side will be fighting to reduce their costs.

Possible Damages for Broken Bones:

  • Medical Expenses- Money spent on medical bills can be reimbursed by the one responsible. These bills can add up quickly, but they can be evidence of the costs that you and your insurance provider have endured.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity- You may have lost some or all of your income due to your injuries. The responsible party can be required to compensate you for that. Additionally, you may be losing future earnings because of an inability to work. You may also have less income due to factors stemming from your injury.
  • Physical Pain & Mental Anguish- On top of your actual monetary damages, you may be entitled to compensation for the physical pain and mental anguish that you experienced. Your lawyer can illustrate your situation and what evidence to support your claim.

Broken Bones At Work

Workplace injuries proceed differently from typical broken bone cases if workers’ compensation insurance is a factor.

Workers’ comp lets you recover compensation for lost earning capacity and medical bills simply by proving that your injury was incurred at work/in the scope of your employment.

However, workers’ compensation does not allow you to sue your employer for causing your injury due to negligence. In addition, you may not be able to recover compensation for physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional distress.

A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can help you understand your options regarding workplace injuries.

A Lawyer Can Help You

With experienced legal counsel, broken bone compensation can include your medical bills and lost wages. But it can be significantly higher if you suffered considerable pain. It is not uncommon for broken bones to require multiple surgeries and reduce the quality of your life.
