The Settlement Value of an Injury Claim Involving Broken Bones
There is no typical amount that the at-fault party’s insurance carrier will pay to settle an injury claim involving broken bones because every injury case is different. For instance, a broken finger claim could involve far less compensation than a skull fracture or a broken neck. Also, many factors go into determining how much money a person will receive for their injuries.
Multiple parties might bear some blame for the situation that injured you. Also, the amount of insurance coverage the at-fault party carries can impact how much money you can get. Sometimes, the negligent party has substantial personal assets that could help to satisfy a jury verdict.
Here are some of the types of money damages one might recover for an injury claim that involves fractures:
You likely missed out on paychecks when you could not work because of your injuries. The person financially responsible for your fractures should have to pay this financial loss, not you.
Lost Future Wages
Depending on the type of fractures you suffered and how well you healed, you might have an ongoing impairment that limits your capacity to make money. Chronic pain, weakness, and loss of function could make you unable to earn as much income as before.
Typically, the at-fault party has to pay the reasonable cost to treat your wounds, which can include things like the:
- Emergency room or trauma center
- Physical therapy
- Pain management
After a devastating fracture like a broken neck or head trauma, some people are robbed of the ability to live independently. If you need daily assistance with medical treatment and personal care, you might need to move into a long-term care facility.
Pain and Suffering
This category is in addition to the payment of your medical expenses. Money damages for pain and suffering show the value of the physical discomfort and emotional distress you endured due to the accident and your injuries.
Other Intangible Losses
With significant injuries, people often experience losses that can be challenging to measure in terms of dollars but impact their quality of life. Disfigurement from scars, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and loss of enjoyment of life are types of intangible damages.
You might have suffered other compensable losses. Your Fort Lauderdale lawyer will explore your situation and evaluate the losses that can be a part of your broken and fractured bone claim.

Who Can Get Sued for Causing Fractures to Someone Else?
If someone else was careless or made a mistake and that action broke your bones, the person could be liable for your losses. Florida law requires that we prove all four of these factors to hold someone responsible for your injuries:

Duty of Care
The defendant must have owed you a legal duty. Let’s say that the incident happened at a bus stop where you and some other people were waiting for the bus to arrive. People at a bus stop have a duty to refrain from engaging in activity that puts other people at risk of harm.
Breach of Duty
Negligence occurs when someone’s conduct fails to measure up to a legal standard of care. One of the waiting bus riders performed dance moves while recording the activity live on social media. He did not pay attention to the people around him and accidentally bumped into you.
His collision with you pushed you from the safety of the bus stop into the street, causing you to get struck by a car. The negligent activity was the cause of you getting hit by the vehicle.
You suffered severe injuries, including multiple fractures, in the accident. Physical injuries satisfy the requirement of sustained losses.
When we can prove all four of these elements of liability, we can pursue a claim for compensation from the at-fault party.
