Obtaining Compensation for Your Painful Fracture
A fracture can be extremely dangerous, painful and if not carefully set and checked by the proper medical personnel, it may need to be re-broken and re-set. This is why it is extremely important to take care of a fracture immediately, even if you just suspect it was “nothing but a little scrape.” There are countless methods by which a broken bone may break, including:
- Altercation or attack by another individual (it is possible that a criminal case may coincide with the civil case)
- Slip and fall on another’s property
- Motor vehicle accident caused by the other driver
- Trip on protruding flooring or carpeting at another’s home
- Chair collapses beneath you
- Boating accident
- Slip on a frozen or wet driveway or walkway
Obviously, there are countless methods that a fracture can occur. It is a good idea to go to the emergency room and also not to speak about the specifics of the accident along the way – speak only to your attorney. If the fracture was caused by the actions or omissions of another party – for example, if there was an unseen, hidden ice cube on the floor that was left unattended and you accidentally tripped on it – they are most likely liable for the resulting consequences of the accident. It is at this time that you want a personal injury attorney to speak up on your behalf. It may be a good idea to immediately contact your personal injury attorney / broken bones attorney to discuss your case with him or her, confidentially. They will guide you as to what to say and not say. Discretion is of the utmost importance here.
