Seeking Medical Treatment and Pursuing Recoverable Damages
Suffering from a broken bone can dramatically impact a victim’s ability to live their day-to-day life. As information from the Cleveland Clinic points out, bone fractures can cause unpleasant symptoms such as pain, swelling, and trouble using the affected area.
Even if you think you have only suffered a minor bump or bruise in an accident, a medical professional will thoroughly inspect the wound to develop an appropriate treatment plan. Standard medical treatment plans for broken bones may take some time to unfold, so a prompt approach is favorable. However, many victims who suffer from broken bones hesitate about seeking treatment plans due to the financial burdens these treatments may cause.
When you have a broken bones attorney working on your case, they will strive to determine your eligibility for financial compensation to cover your medical costs. Some recoverable damages that you may be entitled to receive after an accident include the following:
- Emergency medical transportation services and care
- X-rays and imaging tests
- Surgeries and other procedures
- Assistive medical devices, such as walkers and crutches
- Prescription and over-the-counter medications
- Future medical bills
In addition to these forms of damages, you may qualify to collect compensation for psychological trauma, lost income, and other losses. Your lawyer will be sure to keep you updated as they build your case and negotiate with other parties on your behalf.

How Your Personal Injury Lawyer Can Build a Case
While the causes of broken bones vary, many incidents involve some form of liability from other parties. For example, in a slip and fall accident, a lawyer may discover that a property owner failed to maintain their property for guests properly. This kind of negligence can place liability on the property owner for broken bones and other injuries that a visitor suffers while on their property.
Car accidents can involve reckless behaviors such as texting and driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and drowsy driving. These cases can involve state and federal laws, which can make a case more complicated than you originally thought. Your lawyer will collect various forms of evidence as they get to work on establishing a liable party and constructing your case.
Once your lawyer identifies the other parties involved in your accident that led to your broken bones, they will take care of any correspondence with these parties. Insurance agents, at-fault drivers, law enforcement officers, witnesses, and other parties can be difficult to confront alone. A lawyer who builds your case will communicate with them on your behalf.
Don’t Let the Statute of Limitations Expire on You
The statute of limitations put forth in Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a) provides that victims who suffer a personal injury in Florida have four years to take legal action after an accident. When you get in touch with a legal team after an accident, they will begin constructing your case. However, you may find yourself out of options if you attempt to take legal action after the statute of limitations imposed by the state authorities runs out.
