Experienced North Dakota Injury Lawyers Representing Clients with Broken Bones
Skilled legal counsel for victims of bone breaks or fractures caused by negligence
Broken arms. Fractured legs. Broken ankles, fingers and wrists. Bone breaks and fractures are fairly common and range in severity, as well as length of treatment needed. A broken bone isn’t always a simple injury that a cast and some rest can fix. These harms can also result in injury to the surrounding ligaments and tissues, even leading 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 or a loved one has suffered a bone fracture in an accident caused by someone’s negligence, you can seek compensation for your injury. The skilled North Dakota personal injury attorneys of Larson Law Firm P.C. have more than 35 years of experience and a record of success fighting for maximum compensation for injured victims.
The long-lasting effects of bone breaks and fractures
While bone fractures are most commonly caused by car accidents and falls, stress fractures — which result from repeated stress and strain — may also occur. Children are more prone to bone breaks and fractures due to their high level of physical activity, while older individuals are more susceptible to bone fractures because healthy bones become weaker as the body ages.
In some of the most severe cases of broken or fractured bones, the injury may require extensive surgeries and rehabilitative treatments in order for proper healing to occur. In addition, our experienced North Dakota lawyers know that further complications may arise, including:
- Infections within the bone
- Damage to the nerves surrounding the broken bone
- Shards from the break may move around within the body, causing damage to organs
Aggressively seeking compensation for your broken or fractured bone injuries
When you secure the legal team at the Larson Law Firm, we first set out to identify the cause of your injury, as well as all responsible parties. We then present your case to the other side and strategically work towards a fair settlement amount. If we are unable to reach an agreement, we will work with you to determine whether litigation is an appropriate next step.
Our skilled litigators have the experience and knowledge to aggressively fight for your rights within a courtroom. Once negligence is proven in your case, the court will look at a number of factors in determining your award amount, such as:
- 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?
- Medical expenses. 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.
- Lost wages. If your broken or fractured 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.
Each personal injury case is unique, so there is no way to quantify what you can expect until we analyze your case and begin collecting evidence.
