Dealing with a bone fracture is a tough experience. A broken bone is a serious injury, and it could leave you struggling to overcome your injuries and recover fully. Unfortunately, you may be struggling to get answers regarding your settlement as well.
Fortunately, you’ll have a chance to recover, but you’ll need to know how to maximize your broken bone settlement. That’s not always so easy when your main focus should be your physical health.
However, you also don’t have to fight alone. Seek out a lawyer who can help you make the most of your bone fracture settlement and recover completely.
Understand Your Claim’s Worth
When you’re struggling with a broken bone, you’ll need compensation that meets all your needs for your claim. However, that’s not always so easy when you’re struggling to keep track of all parts of your claim. You’ll need to keep track of all the damages you’ve suffered because of your injury, both economic and non-economic.
You’ll need economic damages that cover all the expenses you’ll need for a full recovery. These damages might include your medical care, for example, from your initial treatment to physical therapy to strengthen your muscles after your recovery.
You’ll also need compensation for the emotional damages you’ve suffered. While these damages may be intangible, like your pain and suffering, you should still seek compensation for them because they can affect your life. For example, you may suffer a loss of enjoyment of life because you’re unable to walk or continue your normal life without pain.
Understanding these damages is vital, so speak to your lawyer about calculating them. You’ll want to ensure that you’re getting the full compensation you deserve before you get started.
Don’t Take the Blame
When you’re injured, the responsible party may not want to accept liability for your suffering. Instead, they may fight back, claiming you were partly responsible for your injuries. Unfortunately, if you’re not ready to defend your claim, these tactics can diminish your claim’s value.
New York observes comparative negligence, which means that your compensation could be lowered based on your part in the accident. For example, if you were 15 percent at fault for the accident, you could receive only 85 percent of your compensation or your recovery.
As such, you’ll need help proving that you weren’t at fault for the accident. Instead, you’ll need to fight to show that the other party was the one responsible for your broken bone.
