Lawyer for Broken Bone in a Car Accident

Attorney Armando Edmiston serves clients in Tampa and all of FL

Due to the violent nature of car accidents, you are at risk of fracturing or breaking pretty much any bone in your body in the event of a crash. Collisions create a lot of force and release large amounts of energy. When your body takes the brunt of that energy, the result can be a bone fracture or break. You may suffer a broken wrist, a broken leg or a broken arm – one of the most common car accident injuries.

Often painful and debilitating, a broken bone can have a major impact on your lifestyle. It doesn’t matter if you sustained a transverse, compound, comminuted or any other type of fracture. If you suffer broken bones after a car accident, the consequences can be devastating. You may not be able to go back to work. You may suffer from immobility, scarring, and disfigurement. Worse yet, your broken bone could be so severe that you require surgical amputation.

The physical, emotional, and financial impact of a broken bone can be a lot to handle on your own, which is why you may want to seek help from an experienced lawyer when trying to recover compensation for your broken bones. Attorney Armando Edmiston, founder of Armando Personal Injury Law in Tampa, knows how to get you the compensation you deserve so that you don’t end up having to pay out of pocket for your injury.

What types of accidents can cause broken bones?

The probability of breaking a bone is higher in crashes that involve a lot of force, such as head-on collisions. However, any type of car crash can result in fractures, including rear-end, T-bone, sideswipe, and other types of wrecks.

What bones can you break in a car accident?

Depending on the severity of your crash, you can break any bone in your body, from rib fractures to broken legs. There are some bones more vulnerable to damage than others. The most common bones broken in car accidents include:

  • Arm
  • Neck
  • Spine/Spinal Cord
  • Back/Vertebrae
  • Femur
  • Skull
  • Hip/Pelvis
  • Sternum
  • Hand/Wrist/Thumb/Finger
  • Collarbone
  • Foot/Ankle/Toe
  • Ribs
  • Face/Nose/Jaw

What is the average broken bone car accident settlement?

Every case is unique and has its own special circumstances, so the average settlement for a broken bone in a car accident will be contingent upon your specific situation. Compensation for a broken leg may differ from the compensation you can receive for a broken arm. In general, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Replacement services
  • Pain and suffering/punitive damages
