Experienced Minot Injury Lawyers
Broken bones often have long lasting effects
A broken bone isn’t always a simple injury that a cast and some rest can fix. A broken bone can also result in injury to the surrounding ligaments and tissues, and it can lead to nerve damage that can cause excruciating, chronic pain. Depending on the type of work you do and the bone you break, you can also lose thousands of dollars from lost work or even diminished earnings capacity going forward.
If you are injured as a result of another’s negligence — such as from a car accident, a slip and fall on someone’s property, or a workplace accident — you may be entitled to compensation under the law. The Minot injury lawyers from the Larson Law Firm help you understand your legal rights and fight to get a fair settlement for your injuries.
What kind of compensation can I get for my injuries?
Once negligence is proven in your case, the first thing that the court will look at in determining your award is the severity of your injuries. Did you have a simple break that was treated with a cast and periodic medical care? Or did you have a complicated break that required multiple interventions and ongoing rehabilitative care? The cost of your medical treatment will be the foundation for your injury award. If doctors say that you will need ongoing care, such as for rehabilitation, the cost of that care will also be included.
If your broken bone injury affected your ability to work, your lost wages can also be included in your settlement. In most cases, you will only lose work to get medical care or to heal from your broken bone. However, with more serious injuries, you may lose your ability to work in the same capacity for months or even years after the accident. Our attorneys will fight to get you a settlement that includes your projected future earnings, as well.
Other things that can be factored into your settlement include your rehabilitative care, mental anguish caused by your injuries and your pain and suffering. Each case is unique, so there is no way to quantify what you can expect until our attorneys thoroughly analyze your case and begin collecting evidence. However, our attorneys use their experience and expert knowledge of the law to determine an appropriate settlement to fight for and to counsel you about what to expect.
Proving negligence for your injuries
In order to collect compensation for your broken bone injury, you must prove negligence. In some cases, this may be simple, such as in a car accident where fault has clearly been established. In other cases, proving negligence may be more complicated, such as if you slip and fall on your neighbor’s property while you are at a cookout.
Our experienced Minot injury lawyers work with a team of experts to establish fault in your case. Our team includes private investigators, medical experts, forensic specialists, occupational specialists and others. For each case, we call on the people who will best assist us with gathering the evidence to support your claim.

It is important that you work with an experienced legal team who has your best interests at heart so that you protect your legal rights and get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Our attorneys are committed to helping you do just that.
